recently i was sent an MP3 to place into the forest radio.
very cool. i like seeing this.
but as i am swamped with work.
i need to ask that everyone submitting mp3s for the site do a minimum of work also.

instructions in the next post. open and edit them in WORD or BBEdit or DREAMWEAVER are better because they will auto-colour the text making it easier to read.
but it's very simple stuff. just find and replace a word and copy and paste a line. and you are done.

making your own forest radio skin

Postby pogo » Tue Jan 17, 2006 10:19 am

the player is skinable. it is an open source FLASH project. meaning that it is free to download all the FLASH.fla files to play around with. so if you know Flash enough, you could rebuild the player to look and act any way that you would like. i give lessons in FLASH too.. if there is anyone interesting in learning.
