I’ve used that.
I use the Audio Player Plugin for Wordpress that implements that. This player is based on the EMFF player and the plugin author seems to have made a tasty custom skin for it.

I use it to blog my tune of the week (not always weekly) here.

awesome, thanks a lot!

No problem! It’s a yummy player.

Hm, I do seem to be having an issue. I used the tutorial for blogger and did what it said to do, but blogger claims that the </head> tag is not permitted? I don’t know what to do about that.

OK bear with me as I have no idea how much experience you have!

• Are you editing the blogger template? Because if you are, it should contain the </head> tag by default, as otherwise it would not be a valid page.

• What is the exact error you’re getting, and when are you getting it?

I’m not editing the template, I was trying to embed a song in a post. The error, which comes up after I hit publish, is:
Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is not allowed: </head>

OK. You’re using the wrong code.

<object type=“application/x-shockwave-flash” data=“http://www.fakedomain.com/myname/audio/player.swf” id=“audioplayer1” height=“24” width=“290”>
<param name=“movie” value=“http://www.fakedomain.com/myname/audio/player.swf”>
<param name=“FlashVars” value=“playerID=1&soundFile=http://www.fakedomain.com/myname/audio/music.mp3”>
<param name=“quality” value=“high”>
<param name=“menu” value=“false”>
<param name=“wmode” value=“transparent”>
</object>

Replace all instances of fakedomain.com/myname/audio/ with the path to where you’ve hosted the files and audio on your own server.
