How to embed an mp3 into a web page.

I can get it to embed video but not mp3s

Hi Brian - Thanks for your comment :) Are you trying to embed an mp3 that's hosted on a web-based service, like Soundcloud? Usually you can go to the mp3's "Share" link for the correct URL. When you follow the steps above, the mp3 player may appear as an iframe box in the preview.

If you're still having issues with embedding mp3s, let us know by emailing support@indiemade.com. We'll try to walk you through your particular situation.

Take care,

Jessica

Taylor,

Might want to open up a support ticket, I tested the procedure in this article and things are working fine.

Taylor - If you're still stuck, you can also embed videos by going copying the Youtube share code, which should start with "<iframe..". When you edit your IndieMade page, click on Source to access the source code of the page. This is where you can paste in your iframe code.

I uploaded a short video to YouTube and I am trying to embed it on the front page. I followed the instructions above and receive a message saying the page has been updated, but still no video. I have attempted it several times and nothing. Please help

Hi Georgie,

Before pasting the YouTube code, you'll want to be sure to click "Source" button on the page you'd like to add the video.

Best,

Andrew
