The popular social networking website MySpace allows you to add music to your profile by selecting songs from the MySpace Music section of the website. If you want to use a song that isn't included on MySpace Music, you may do so by embedding the song into your profile using HTML.

Step 1

Log into your MySpace account and find and click "Edit Profile."

Step 2

Click on the text box labeled "About Me."

Step 3

Enter the following HTML code in the text box, replacing the sample URL with the complete URL to the song that you want to use.

<embed src="http://www.MusicURL.com/example.mp3" width="140" height="40" autostart="true" loop="FALSE">
</embed>

Step 4

Save your changes. View your MySpace profile to make sure your music works correctly; it should begin playing automatically.

Tip

  • Music must be uploaded to the Internet before you can add it to your profile. If you don't have a server to which you can upload, check with your ISP; many offer free Web hosting space.
