New Media Player

I took the liberty of programming a fancy, custom media player for OurLifeSavior.  Check it out and let me know what you think!  The other one was messed up because it didn't work on the internet browser Safari and it didn't allow you to see the name of the song directly in it.  With the new one, you can see the title of the song right on there, and it just looks better.

Try it out and let me know what you think!  I'd be glad to add features if you have suggestions.  You can click the play button to start it.  Generally, it should say the artist and title of the song once it's ready to play.

In addition, I put the song "While You Were Sleeping" in the media player--the song that Kole, Kade and I will be playing for Candlelight Service.  We still need votes on our name--don't forget to vote, if you haven't already!

Edit: I've added a function for the media player.  Right click it to access it.  It is "AutoStart," which makes the song start when you enter the page (without hitting play).  Unless you have it blocked, it will save your preference for next time you visit.

Edit 2: I added a loading display.  When the song begins, the area behind the song title will be gray.  While the song is loading, the background will show a progress bar from gray to red, and when it is fully red it is fully loaded.

God bless!

Now I can't access the song on my iPod Touch. I'll have to see if it works with my Linux OS on my laptop now.

Hey guys, I've always thought that if you ever started a band that Life Savior would be a good name, glad you put it up in that voting box. That's the one I like best:)

Well, the first time I went to the home page, the media player didn't work. After an hour of diagnosing the problem and writing a comment on what I did to achieve my results, it started working for no apparent reason. So the only things I can tell you is that it wasn't working for awhile, and that Internet Explorer reported a syntax error in your 1919 lines of source code. I think it's time to clean up this page.

But the good news is that the media player is now functioning properly on all major operating systems. The only two features I would like to see are 1) a progress bar, and 2) any song other than While You Were Sleeping.

Thanks Joshua. Do you mean a progress bar as in where the song is playing, or how much of it has been loaded? The latter I was meaning to do anyways.

As for the song, we put that up because that's what we're doing for the candlelight service. We'll probably eventually allow multiple songs on it, but for now, that's what we've got.
