UPDATE 27/12/14

2015 is coming, you know what that means? New things!!

This tutorial is a little dated now to say the least, so in the new year this tutorial will become your complete source for adding music to your homepage. It will feature numerous methods and designs, giving you a larger variety to choose from.

In the meantime, please continue to use Gaf's generator.

Please bare with me, it'll be up and running soon.

See you in 2015.




Welcome to IMVU's most popular music tutorial. This is a step by step tutorial which will teach you how to have music play on your IMVU homepage. The tutorial is extremely simple to follow, but if you have any questions or need help, feel free to PM (private message) me, jxck. A huge thank you to gaf210 who coded, designed and generated the codes. You can check out his amazing website here, where you can find many more codes and generators.

* Disclaimer: No Copyright Infringement Intended. For educational and visual example use only. Images taken from YouTube™ (http://www.youtube.com/).



Log onto youtube.com and search for a song you want to have play on your homepage.



Once you have chosen the song you want to play, copy and paste the website url address by right clicking, copy or cntrl + c (for windows) or cmd + c (for mac).



It's now time to use Gaf210's amazing generator on his website. Click the following link which will take you to his website: gaf210.imvustylez.net


Ensuring the 'single video' option is selected, paste the copied url into the "Youtube video link / ID:" by right clicking, paste or cntrl + v (for windows) or cmd + v (for mac).



Now simply select the design underneath you wish to have!

Control-less
Control-less simply removes the control bar at the bottom of the video, embedding simply the video itself.

Button
A simple play/pause button. The colours can be changed to match your current homepage theme/style.

Button + Volume
Still a play/pause button, but with a volume selector added. Again, the colour can be changed.

Button + Volume + Progress Bar
With the same features as the other buttons, this player also features the progress bar of the song.

Invisible
Perhaps the most popular method of song playing on IMVU, this simply plays your desired song in the background with no visual image of video.

To make the most of your player, remember to set it to auto play!

Then finally copy/paste the code into any desired panel of your choice.


Again, huge thanks to Gaf210! Without your amazing website and expert knowledge, this tutorial wouldn't be here gaf210.imvustyelz.net - Check it out for more codes, generators and more!


Thank you for continuing to read and use this tutorial.
I'm thrilled to see it's helped so many of you.

Great tutorial. I like that you provided pics.

Some information that you can add

you forgot the loop ("&loop=1")

I do not know if you should remove some of the embed code that Youtube provides you. I think some of the code is required to be supported for the internet explorer browser as I have heard some forums (I may be totally wrong as I haven't tested it).

@ Sokrataki

Thank you for the additional information.
My goodness, you must type fast (:
I don't know why i remove parts of the codes.
I guess it still works, and takes up less space.
And thank you for the loop idea, and the additional size options.
I'll put the link you provided me up there ^
Thanks again.

tested on an IMVU panel with the latest internet explorer and removing the parts of the code with your tutorial doesn't bring a problem to the player. I am sorry on what I said earlier.
