Embedded music is music that plays automatically upon a person's arrival to website. In theory, it sounds like a great way to spiff your site up a little. In reality, well...it ain't so great.
Many people find embedded music to be a major turn off. I know when I come across a site with it, I often click out of the site right away. I know many people who share similar sentiments.
I mean, hey. We're all fans here. We all know and love the Main Theme, Imperial March, and Duel of the Fates. But as much as I love John Williams' music, I don't appreciate it blaring (the volume always seems to be turned up too high) upon my entry to a site.
If you feel the absolute need to put
embedded music on your site, remember to put an OFF button
in plain view. The only thing I dislike more than blaring embedded
music, is blaring embedded music that won't stop.
