I've seen music players used to great effect on other sites, not in GuildPortal.  The music starts, then you click around the site where you want to go.  The benefit those sites had were that they were self-contained in a frame and the music player remained on the static page, so the music never got disrupted by the loading of a new page.

That's what I'd like.  I initially thought to embed my GuildPortal site in another domain/webspace, but did a little research and found that GuildPortal really just doesn't want you doing that.  Or won't even allow it, depending.

Can anyone offer a work-around (or an application specifically designed for this)?  I'd like to be able to use a java/flash or flash-based application to run music off a playlist that my site visitors can pause, play, forward, skip around on the list, etc, and yet leave the song playing while they browse through different posts in the forums and not restart the music with each click.  And I'm not keen on creating a pop-out window.

I posted about using a frame for your music player in this post. Message me if you are having problems implementing it
