    mp3 player -Java Bean /plugin playing mp3 files

    On our clients website, we have 2 versions - flash and html. In the flash version we have a page where in you can select any song (link) in mp3 format and play it. There are ActiveX Objects
    which work as mp3 players which you can embed in an asp file.
    But unfortunately the server is hosted on linux with Chilliasp support, but i aint sure if activex objects work on chilli asp supported servers.

    I am in need of a Java Bean or some embeddeble object which works as an mp3 player.Anybody has a better soultion to this, anybody knows a website where i can get a download a java bean with mp3 playing capabilties?

    I think that the ActiveX is downloaded from your site and runs in the user's browser, playing the mp3 file.
    In this case there should be no problem even if your server is linux based.
    The only problem that usually arises from ActiveX controls is that they are supported only by Internet Explorer.
    You can look for an applet that should run in Netscape/Opera/Konqueror also, like http://www.javazoom.net/applets/jlgu...guiapplet.html or http://www.jgalaxy.com/java/mp3/audio.html.
