    Custom Audio / MP3 Player

    Hi there,

    this is my first post on here so I hope that I am in the right area.

    So heres the scoop: I am trying to develop my own music player, or at least properly learn how to do so. Preferably I wanted to stay away from using Flash, but creating a cross-browser player and preventing unwanted or unauthorized mp3 downloads seems like more trouble than its worth, especially with each browser's different plug-ins. So at this point, I am willing to do Flash.

    I am looking for anyone who is willing to help, point me towards some decent tutorials, or even just show me references or information I could use to learn on my own. I am proficient with PHP, XHTML, MySQL, jQuery and JavaScript, but not so much with Flash or AJAX.

    What I am trying to do with this player is load or play mp3s from a directory on the server, without writing them into the actual player and hiding the durectiry and file location. Mp3s will be added and updated, so I need something that will handle new songs and files.

    I am assuming that the solution here is to read the directories using PHP and render JavaScript to control a Flash player. I would be extremely grateful for any help, I cant seem to find anything on the web and I have been looking for months.

    Thanks!

    ok

    if this is true....

    I am proficient with PHP, XHTML, MySQL, jQuery and JavaScript
    then this will be a doddle and quite an enjoyable learning curve

    Ok

    I created a flash mp3 player for this site...

    http://www.helpscheme.co.uk/en/easyread ( its the 'Listen to this page' button)

    here are the source files including test.mp3

    http://codezenith.co.uk/mp3player.zip

    the swf is the compiled flash app

    the fla is the source

    you need to open the fla in flash and press F9 to view how i have coded it up

    If the above is true it wont take much to bend it to your liking
