    I am taking embedded widgets from Reverbnation, setting them to autoplay, and putting them on a weebly site. I would like to put multiple widgets on the page and have them all autoplay but apparently Reverbnation makes it to where only one will play at a time. Does anyone know how I could get around this?? I would really appreciate the help. This is my first post so I don't think I can PM anyone, but I can send someone the embedded code if that would help. THANK YOU!

    Just use the code tag on here and post some example code.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure if i did... it right but i selected "wrap CODE around selected text" button above, and it said i wasnt allowed to post URL's yet. Is that what you meant by "code tag"?

    The purpose is to increase your bounce rate by 95% ? :D

    I mean autoplay is really not suitable in 99% of the websites, unless you are trying to do a bot or earn money from the few seconds of a view.

    Put each widget in it's own html page. Then embed each one of those pages with an iframe.

    I understand that...but I have a specific reason to do this

    I tried your idea, but it still won't play both. I also just noticed that the player from ReverbNation will stop playing when a widget on a different site starts to play.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Bounce rate through the roof. If I hear something I don't expect to hear, I'm usually looking to shut it up fast. If I go to a site and hear a whole bunch of noise overlapping, my pointer is clicking the close button faster than I can blink. I don't even look at the page. Closed.

    I really can't see why you would want to do this. Pretty sure it's been repeatedly proven that autoplay sounds increase bounce rate and decrease return visits over and over again.

    Its fairly obvious he's trying to boost the play count on those songs, so rather then explaining irrelevant bounce rate to him, lets try to be a bit more constructive.

    If that's the case and you don't care about irritating the living shit out of people, why not pop up a whole series of individual windows/tabs instead if trying to pack them all into one.

    Yes it saves a cookie in the `playing` or `paused` state. I'm not sure how the workaround to this sounds, unless they actually mirror the player and rig it up to play RN songs even though the player is hosted elsewhere.

    I still think it's doable but would take a few hours to try.
