Embed an audio file using a Media Player page

There is a simple Media Player web page that has been created by the Office of Web and New Media that will automatically embed both audio and video files on a blank page using the University template. All you need to do is simply copy and paste a URL and then append the URL of the video file onto the end of the original URL.

  1. Copy and paste the following URL into a text editor: http://www.missouristate.edu/multimedia/player.aspx?media=
  2. Copy the URL of your audio file
  3. Now that you have the URL of the audio file, append that audio file URL onto the end of the Missouri State media player URL above.

    An example of the two URLs combined is http://www.missouristate.edu/multimedia/player.aspx?media=FeedEnclosure/missouristate.edu.
