Audio on the Web

Audio on the web isn't a new phenomenon. In fact, record labels, bands, and web sites such as Napster, Purevolume.com, Real's Rhapsody (formally Listen.com), iTunes, eMusic, and others offer direct downloads and streaming audio directly from their websites at a fraction of the cost of buying the CD from a music store—and have been doing it for a few years now. With the number of mobile music devices on the market, it's obvious that Internet-based audio, including the distribution of music online, is the most exciting and potentially earth-shaking aspect of the Internet audio scene.

In an effort to keep up with latest trends, you might be thinking that it's time to begin adding audio to your website. Whether you want to add faint ambient background music or direct downloads of your band's work, adding audio to your web pages in Dreamweaver is simple. The rest of this chapter deals with adding audio to your websites using Dreamweaver. As you'll see, working with audio is similar, if not closely related to, working with video; adding these types of media to your websites is no more complicated than including images and text.
