Course Request: How to build a music player website...

This is a very compelling topic for me as a musician, but something that does not get much attention out in the wild. I would like a course that incorporates, html, css, javascript and whatever else is needed to build a persistent music player for a website, like the one pictured below:

The music player need to be:

  1. Fixed
  2. Persistent
  3. Responsive
  4. Resolution Independent
  5. Able to store playing history
  6. Able to adjust volume

Among many other things that escape me at the moment. This would be an awesome course, indeed.

This would also open up the door to a whole series of courses on creating modules, like lightboxes, video players, etc... that require knowledge of a full stack of skills.

Thank you for your consideration :-)

same here Zachary Green. It's a tough challenge and i'm not really sure how to go about it. I've found this:


But i want more than it offers and well as having the ability to skin and customize it to my heats content, etc...

Hi, i dont know but , you can look on youtube and on overstackflow or in any other website and start with basics , it will probabily take time , or not , but that way learning things about music on website , with time, you can try to put things together like in HTML and CSS and then look for a specific help. Thats what i think could be useful but it depends on the person how they learn.
