View Full Version : Need help to create links to music files from home server for online listerning.

I have a home server setup with IIS and would like to create a web page which links to music files on my computer so I can access my music from home while away by simply clicking on the links. I have Windows media encoder to encode the files to wma for 56k. Also, I am using Windows XP and have Frontpage express.

My question is: how do I set up the page (hyperlinks) to link to these music files?
Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks. Linda T.

Create a folder for you webpages, now place the music files you wish to make available to play inside that folder.

Copy and paste the code above into notepad and save as a web page eg: song.htm

Change 'song.mp3' to whatever the name of your music file is eg: 'mysong.wma'.

This is just a very basic piece of code to get you started.....but it's a start
