Chameleon MP3 Player

To the left is version 1.4 of the Chameleon MP3 Player.

This convenient program is designed to allow web masters and web designers to present MP3 sound files on their web pages with or without giving their users the opportunity to directly download the MP3 files themselves.

The playlist may be managed by a text file, so the web site owner does not need to have any experience with Flash coding, databases, or XML, or it can be managed by a PHP or ASP file to generate a list from a directory filled with MP3 files, or even to interface with a database if you prefer - simply follow the steps in the supplied read-me file and you will have a working online music system!
