Hello Bloggers !! 8)
I’m back again in the my Technical Yard section. I am about tell y’all something really cool and fascinating Stuff which is an awesome Widget for any Blog. Well this one, not only Blogger, but also other people would like it as well. I’m simply talking about a customized Music I-Pod Playlist, which runs on a GUI Music Player created by Mixpod.com, which simply plays Music of your selected Songs in a Playlist. It’s a very Cool Stuff to add in your Blog as many people like to have such thing in a blog these days. So just try it once for sure.
Not only for Blogs Like- WordPress and Blogspot, Add a Mixpod to any webpage and make people to listen to your Music Playlist. Every time someone visits your blog, He/She will be able to hear the Music of your selected Playlist on your very own Mixpod. Ohh !! That sounds really Cool huh !! 8)
It’s very very simple to add to your Blog.
First of all, visit the Official Mixpod Website, where you’ve to Create an account by Signing up at there. It’s just simple, like you create an account in Facebook. Just fill up the necessary details and then, You’re done !!
After making an account on there, It’s time to Create a New Playlist by clicking the required Tab for that. Here you’ve to first, choose a Skin which you would like to have in your Music Player. There are plenty of options to choose any one of them. Some of them like- Mixpod, MixTape, Old School,Ninja, Jeroen V2 etc. are typically MP3 Players only. Whereas, some other players like – Sidekick, MyPod Touch, Minipod, MyPod Nano etc. are MP3 and Music Video Players as well.
Out of them, My personal favorite is ‘ MyPod Touch ‘, because of its very cool look. 😉 8)
Anyways, after selecting Player Skin, it’s time to Create a Playlist of your favorite songs. Well, this job is very very easy as Mixpod gives you a place to search your favorite song and then add it to your Playlist. You could even change the order of the Songs, by dragging any particular song to the desired position. Otherwise, there is an option to Sort the songs in either Ascending or Descending order. You could even change your Player’s skin as well as Mixpod gives an option to select a Skin, if you are not satisfied with the Previous Skin.
After Creating your Music Playlist of your Music Player, Save the Playlist, by giving a Name(required) and description (optional) to it. Also, select some other options to describe the Genre and Category of your Playlist. You could even give some Tags to it as well. Now, your Playlist is defined as well.
You can now Save it, when you’re all done with the required formalities, and collect the HTML code for your playlist, which you could even Post on your Blog. However, You would be asked to Share/Post this Playlist in Website. Then, Go to Other Sites Tab, Click on ‘More‘ and then, on ‘WordPress‘ button. It would ask for your WordPress Username, its Password and Blog’s URL. Fill those spaces and Post it. But, it would automatically make it as a Post in Blog. 😛
For inserting it as a Widget on your WordPress Blog.
Copy the HTML Code from the Blog Post . Then Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the HTML Text Tab on your sidebar Menu. Paste the HTML Code, add a suitable Heading (your wish) and Save/Activate it.
Finally, you’ve inserted it in your Blog. It plays automatically whenever any visitor comes to your Blog. You and other visitors would get to see the Mixpod Player playing all your favorite songs added in your Playlist, all exclusive in your Blog. Honestly speaking, I have used it long time ago and even used it for a very long time as well. But all those Fun has ended now, as I’m done with it and removed that thing. 😛
But It’s not BAD thing to have it. You could atleast try at once.
!! Just make one and Have Fun !!
