Here is an off-the-wall question:
Can I create a location on my server to store mp3’s of voice overs that I could then link to from pages on my hosted web sites?
I have tried putting an intro mp3 on the site page itself but of course, that slows the load time dramatically. (I’m talking simple little mp3’s like “Hi, I’m Joe owner of ABC company, welcome to our web site where we have compete information on all our products. If you have more questions please call me personally...etc” maybe 20-30 seconds.
Could I record, upload, and store these on a separate location on my server, link to the clip from the web page so it plays simultaneously, and get the voice over while maintaining the fast load of the page?
I know there are some commercial services for this but they are kind-of expensive for the small stuff I would like to do. Anybody with any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
no need to spend so much money on this.
just use a simple Flash to handle this.
do a loading process...
the whole site will load fast as normally it does... just the flash part would show "Loading Content..." and when it does load 100% then it would start playing and u can even have "play" "stop" & "pause" on it too...

It would seem that the time spent to record the clip, embed it in a "fash" put the flash in the site etc. would be a lot more touble than creating a file like "joes.mp3" that would auto-run from a link...if that's possible. I have extra server resources to spare and a simple program for recording the mp3s so there would be no cost there....if I just knew a simple way to do it.
I guess if all else fails...I hadn't thought of using Flash.
