The html code below allows you to embed a Windows Media Player into your web page. Simply replace the playlist urls (http://shoutcast.internet-radio.org.uk/tunein.php/bluntbeatssc/playlist.asx) with your stations. The player will auto play the radio when someone lands on the page.

HTML:
<OBJECT ALIGN="middle" width="500" TYPE="application/x-oleobject" STANDBY="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components . . ." CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" CODEBASE="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701">

Hi there.

Great Post.

I've tried to use your html code in my website (www.fox-webdesign.co.uk/fox-radio.html), but no luck.

When I publish the code to my site, it will show a buffering bar and it will play my intro file, but it will not play the streaming of the radio, it just keeps saying "ready", also I cannot see nay controls, such as "Play", "Pause", etc, is that right?

Any help would be appriciated.

Oh, by the way, I'm using Icecast and I'm broacasting using SAM broadcaster

Thanks in advance

I had the same problem untill I looked at the code and realised that it tries to publish media player twice. I found that if you take out all the code between the <object> and the </object> tag it woks just fine.
You dont seem to need all the <parname> tags.
The <embed> tag line works great in IE, Chrome and Firefox.
