    I want to place a music player on my website, but most mobile devices don't support Flash. Is there another way to add music to a site so that it can be played in mobile devices?

    Of course. Here is a page on embedding background music using only native HTML, plays automatically. Or, add a simple link "Play song here" pointing to an MP3 on your server, the user will hear it within whatever player is associated in the mobile device, i.e. Quicktime or Windows Media or Amarok (Linux). For non-mobile an MP3 link will result in either a download or an association with a player resident on that client, depending on the user's preferences on their side. And here is an interesting solution from Brothersoft.com.

    I'm sure others may have suggestions as well.
