Is there any way when using iTools to get music to play in the background of a slideshow?

I want to present a complete slideshow from a website of any sort. If anybody would host it for me for like a week i would be gratefull.

Any help is appreciated. <img src="graemlins/embarrassed.gif" border="0" alt="[Embarrassed]" />

Im no html expert, but if you take the raw html from the album page, and embed an audio file into it, you should have no problems.

I am thinking of Adobe GoLive where you just drag and drop embedded objects (flash, quicktime, audio, etc) and then give it properties (click to load, load right away, loop, etc).

When you modify the html, just re upload it to the same directory with the raw audio files of course, and when the person clicks on the album picture, the audio loads in the background and the 'slideshow' pictures pop up.

Thats a very unsophisticated approach seeing that Im no expert...

Anyone else care to tell how to properly do this?
I'm having deja-vu and amnesia at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Thanks, but I have none of the appropriate software to do this.

Is there anyone who would do the honors if i sent them organized files? It is a small file altogether. MP3 audio file is 2.5 MB and the pictures equal about 9 MB.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I can make some sample HTML for you to use.

And I don't use that nansy-pansy WYSIWYG editor crap.

Basically, here's what I'd do:

I could create a frameset with two frames. The first frame would contain the music and the second would hold the various pages for the slideshow. It's fairly simple.

What kind of bandwidth are you looking at? Something small just for your family, perhaps? I could serve it, if that's the case.

edit: by the way, embedding an mp3 is as simple as:[code]&lt;embed src="mymusic.mp3"&gt;</pre><hr></blockquote>

It is just for my family and a few friends. Could you host it for me? I have everything all neatly packaged for you. Pretty please? <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />
