Testing - Testing

This could be fun.
I've been playing around trying to embed an mp3 player in the blog and I think I may have sussed it. It's dead easy, if it works...

Here's Heaven's Fool by ABandinUrHead featuring yours truly on bass:



Now if that plays for you we are on a winner! Here's how it works.

I uploaded HeavensFool.mp3 to Upload-MP3.com and noted the URL.
Upload MP3 is a free hosting service and I didn't register, so this upload may be short lived. Just testing the idea.

So you have the URL ie: http://foo.bar.com/yoursong.mp3 copy the code below and paste it into your blog as text/html, not forgetting to update the address.

<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.google.com/reader/ui/3247397568-audio-player.swf?audioUrl=http://foo.bar.com/yoursong.mp3" width="400" height="27" allowscriptaccess="never" quality="best" bgcolor="#ffffff" wmode="window" flashvars="playerMode=embedded" />
Let me know if it works for you. Anyone fancy a podcast?
