PHP Question

mp3 playing services or server(link ending with .mp3)

In my app I need to play online mp3 which I am successfully playing using MediaPlayer in android using this link


I have many mp3's that that I need to upload on server which provide the services as the above link mentioned.

I have tried to upload them on Google Drive, Also tried soundcloud but their behaviour was different.

I need the same service like this link http://www.virginmegastore.me/Library/Music/CD_001214/Tracks/Track1.mp3 provides.

Anyone know any website having this behaviour ?

Thanks in advance

UPDATE after -ve downvotes(showing what I tried)

I used picosong.com which produces this link http://picosong.com/5Nt9 , The above link does not ends with ****.mp3 & to make this desired link I perhaps need a php server !

I searched on net & found these websites

I tried it running in the localhost xampp which does not show anything, no errors but not running

What am I doing wrong ?

All I just want is the .mp3 ending link having exact the same visibility as this link http://www.virginmegastore.me/Library/Music/CD_001214/Tracks/Track1.mp3
because only this type of link can be streamed live in android.

Help !!

Answer Source

The link you provided to the MP3 file was just... a link to an MP3 file. Every client will interpret it differently.

So you can:

  1. Store the file in the server and provide a link to the file - no PHP involved.
  2. Deliver using PHP

    header('Content-type: audio/mpeg');
  3. You mentioned Google Drive. You can deliver the file directly by:

    1. Putting the files in a folder and make the folder public. Not "anyone with the link" - public.
    2. Redirecting the user to https://googledrive.com/host/[FOLDER_ID]/[MP3_FILE].mp3

Have fun.
