Downloading and unzipping
Click the download link and save the file to your desktop.
Extract the save zipped file with eitherWinzip
by installing either of those programs, and then right clicking and selecting
one of the extraction options.
Picture of winrar extraction options, I chose "extract to player\" which extracts it to the same folder as the zipped file.
As you can see, winrar extracts the files onto my desktop into a folder named "player"
Before you continue, you must upload your MP3's and the
player.swf file to a host of your choice. Some include Tripod
Using the file manager of whatever host you are using, upload the mp3's and the swf file to the server.
Before uploading, ensure that your mp3's you want to upload
DO NOT HAVE ANY SPACES IN THEIR NAME. Replace them with "_" (without
the quotes) or just delete them from the filename)
This example will not look exactly like the file manager used by your site, each site uses a different type. This should
Go to the File 1 line, and
select browse. Browse to the location on your hard drive that you saved the MP3
file and select OPEN.
After selection open, the line will be filled with the
hard drive location of your file.
You are now free to continue on, uploading as many mp3's as your little heart
desires. For the sake of simplicity I will be using 3 for this tutorial.
page would look like this:
Now select the "Finish" option, and let the files
upload. The page will refresh itself when they are finished. DO NOT REFRESH THE
PAGE, CLOSE THE PAGE, and Hell to be safe, go get some food and let it upload.
Once the files are finished uploading you will be sent back to the file manager
page and it will show your files there.
It will look like this but with fewer
Now you must hover the mouse over your file name and right
click. Select properties and copy the complete Address file field, which for my
gorillaz song, is
for each of the song you uploaded and save the address of these files into
notepad or something.
Now you will edit the XML file.
Open the folder where you extracted the zip file and right
click the "playlist.xml" file. Select "edit" and it should
open up in notepad.
This is what you should see in notepad
Now you must replace the: "Song link here.mp3" with one
of the addresses you copied earlier. and then go to "title="Artist -
Track name"" area and edit the information with the artist and track
name. Keep the existing quotes.
Mine ended up looking like this.
You can delete the lines of "<song path="Song Link Here.mp3" title="Artist - Track name">"
that you do not need, and also ADD more of those lines if you would like more
songs in your player, by copying the entire line and adding it to the end of
the list before the "</songs>" line.
Save the XML file and exit it. Now
go back to your 30mb.com site and upload the "player.swf" and
"playlist.xml" files using the above method. Refer to the pictures if
As you did with the music files, from the file manager on
www.30mb.com, right click the newly uploaded swf file, and obtain (that means
"get" in case you didn’t know) the address of the .swf file. Mine
was "http://www.30mb.com/x/skuller12/player.swf" Now head over to
and paste the address you just got into the box.
Now select the "Make tinyurl!" button. A new page
should pop up which looks like:
Copy the tiny URL it spits out. Mine was
Editing the HTML
This is the code generic code, provided by MyGen, that we will be editing
Where it says 'TINYURL HERE', you must add the tinyurl that you just got
BETWEEN THE QUOTES.
To get the URL of your playlist.xml
file, you must find the url of your site which is in
the right hand corner of your file manager page.
Once you have that url, you must
copy it and then add “/playlist.xml ” to
the end without quotes. So mine would look like www.30mb.com/x/skuller12/playlist.xml
. You then take the url and paste it where is says
"http://pathto/playlist.xml" Completely overwrite that with the url
of your playlist.xml file. BUT DO NOT PASTE PAST THE "&" OR
BEFORE THE “playList=”.
