Skinnable MP3 Player Parameters
Return to the Index
The following XML configuration parameters exist for the applet version of the Skinnable MP3 Player. The default XML file name is "config.xml", but that can be changed easily. If you change the XML file name, be sure to update the XML reference in the appropriate HTML file, too!
Please use a good text editor, like Textpad, to edit the config.xml file.
MP3 component users can set many of these options using function calls. To see what functions are available to you, please download the programmers API (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).
