MP3 Jukebox player

Greetings all,

I'd like to set up an MP3 jukebox player for a product in Shopify.  The product is a music CD and I want to set up the player to play snippets of each song on the album.  I'm using the open source version of FlowPlayer.  I have a couple questions:

1) Does anyone have a working example of this type of solution you could point me to? (FlowPlayer or something else)

2) I need to associate a bunch of MP3's with a product in Shopify, so the player will know what songs to play for a particular CD product.  How do you associate several items like this (MP3's) as assets, with a specific product?

Thanks for any pointers you can provide.

Regards,

NorthK

I've used FlowPlayer before on non Shopify sites and it works great. I just did a quick search and found this link that looks like a good way of doing it: http://flowplayer.org/plugins/streaming/audio.html

Basically you would put the tracks in the product description as links or embedded configuration (surrounded by <notextile> tag).

I've also used this before (in Shopify sites) that may be of use if you end up going with FlowPlayer: http://plugins.jquery.com/project/flowplayer

BBG,

Thanks for the pointers.  I think I see what you mean about the product description-- I could put in the MP3 files as links and use the FlowPlayer playlist plug-in to parse the links as the configuration for the player. I guess that means there is no way to associate "custom" product data with a product, except by placing that data directly into the product description field?

Do you have any example code you could point me to?  Also, can you please expand on what you get if you use the JQuery plug-in?

Thanks,

NorthK
