The Google Audio Player is designed to provide audio playback capabilities for Google Reader. The audio player is a Flash object which makes it possible to stream MP3 and other audio files. Although it is designed for Google Reader, webmasters can utilise the audio player to provide on-site playback of audio players. Simply embed the Google Audio Player on your website to provide MP3 playback to visitors.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Copy the following embed code:

    <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="[MP3_file]" height="27" width="320"></embed>

  2. 2

    Paste the embed code where you would like for the Google Audio Player to be displayed. You can paste the code in a blog entry, within the HTML of your website or on your social networking profile.

  3. 3

    Edit the [MP3_file] portion of the embed code to point to an actual MP3 file found on the Internet. The file must be available on the Internet and have a unique URL for the streaming to operate correctly.
