How To Embed MP3/YouTube Videos On Your Site/Blog Using Yahoo Media Player

Uptade: Yahoo Media Player has been discontinued as of June 30, 2013.

Hello Readers!
Yahoo Media Player is a great media player for sites and blogs. You can easily embed your MP3, WMA music files and YouTube videos on Yahoo Media Player. Here is an easy step to step guide about how to embed your media files on your blog using Yahoo Media Player.

The Yahoo Media Player is currently available in 2 colors, ''Black'' and "Silver''.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<a href="Your MP3 URL Here ">Track Name Here</a>

Replace the first red text with ''Direct MP3 URL'', for example:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Silver Player code

<script type="text/javascript"> var YWPParams = { theme: "silver" }; </script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>


Paste the code just above </body> tag .


Go to the "Design" tab and click "Edit HTML".Press Ctrl+F from your keyboard find tag and paste the player code just above </body> tag "Save Template".


Go to "Edit Themes" and click on the "Footer" template. Paste the code just above the closing </body> tag and click "update file".


Go to your Dashboard and click the "Customize" link. Next, click "Theme", then click "Enable custom HTML". Scroll down to find the tag, paste the player code just above it and then save your changes.
