music

does anybody think that it would be possible without slowing down the site that much to add music like myspace? (when you go onto someones file it plays)

I, for one, find music on websites extremely annoying. Not only is it rude, but it turns people off to the information presented. Remember that you probably have different music tastes than your guests, and that no one likes to listen to bad music (Ahem, ::cough:: Eminem) . ; )

Same here... If someone sends me their MySpace address; I'll look. If music starts playing, the page is instantly closed; Unread.

ok so what if there was a preference that would allow music to play or not play as soon as you opened the page i dont really care about music but i think it would add to my page

Possible... probably.... it's going to require some fancy footwork to make it work.... As others said... I won't take the time to look if I hear anything playing that I didn't start myself. It will slow down some users. As for myspace... I set the address to where the music is stored to 127.0.0.1 (local host) in my host file. So every time someone has that garbage set up, the music player gets an error :P
