    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post.

    Also music, that starts to play when the website is opened can be quite annoying.

    I personally dislike it, unless the music controls are easily to find, so I can press pause or mute.

    For an actual music player with multiple tracks, everything I've come across involves Flash player, so you'll have to learn a little actionscript in order to do this as well as own either Flex Builder or Flash CS4/CS3, etc..

    If you don't mind the user having to click on an individual song/effect in order for hear something, you can accomplish this easily with an <embed> tag, which should come with at least play/pause controls.

    I honestly don't think you could find one person that enjoys opening up a webpage and having music autoplay. If you want to add music to the site, I highly recommend making the user click a play button, and not having autoplay.

    Yes, please. No automatically playing music. We thank you.

    I "black list" every site that autoplays music. I only ever see the site once then never again.

    What I would suggest is a button called "PLAY" that people can click if they want to hear music. Otherwise I can't think of a faster way to chase people away.
