I really want to add a music player on my site, is this done via front end, I have a Github pages Personal site..

I really like the media player here (http://www.muradosmann.com/). Any advice, tips, or resources for where I can learn how to do this would be wonderful!

Hey Seth,

From looking at the site you linked to, it seems the entire site is build in Flash. In my opinion (and I'm sure there will be many opposed to this), I wouldn't recommend it. I don't even have Flash installed on my main systems because of the very weak security it has. Even many prominent websites (i.e FaceBook) want an end to Flash (via cnet).

If you want to add a player to your site, I'd give the HTML Video and Audio Course a look at.

Again, my opinion (albeit a strong one), stay away from Flash, because there are many out there like me that don't (and won't) have Flash even installed.

:dizzy:
