❀ Code #17: Music Player (autoplay + loop enabled)

As of the last update, the audio tag doesn't work. If you're using youtube autoplay, you have to approve the youtube/spotify/souncloud embed. Which means that your audio option has to be visible otherwise, people going to your profile won't even see the option to approve it.

This is what it looks like:

Telepathy by BTS

the css:

/* this changes the background of the song name */
.songnamebackground {
    background: black;
    border-radius: 0px;
    padding: 5px;
/* this customizes the title of the song */
    font-family: Arial;
    font-weight: normal; /*you can switch this to bold */
    font-size: 13px;
    color: LightSteelBlue;
/* this is for the entire box.
you can add a background image if you want */
.player {
    background: transparent;
    border: 3px solid black;
    padding: 0px;
/* this changes the color of the download button
go to to get the code */
.player a img, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls-play-button, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls-mute-button, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls-volume-slider, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls-timeline {
    filter: brightness(0) saturate(100%) invert(99%) sepia(70%) saturate(1745%) hue-rotate(175deg) brightness(86%) contrast(102%)!important;
/* this changes the color of the entire track 
go to to get the code */
.player audio, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls-enclosure, .player audio::-webkit-media-controls-panel {
    background: transparent;
    height: 40px;
    filter: brightness(0) saturate(100%) invert(0%) sepia(100%) saturate(16%) hue-rotate(246deg) brightness(98%) contrast(105%)!important;

the html:

<div class="player box">
 <div class="songnamebackground">
 <span class="songtitle">Telepathy by BTS</span>
 <a href="" download="Telepathy">
 <img style="height: 15px; float: right; padding-right: 2px;" src=""></a>
 <audio controls="" loop="" autoplay="" src="" controlslist="nodownload"></audio>

To use a song from Dropbox, click here.
1. Upload your file.
2. On your file, click the Share button.
3. Click COPY LINK. It will be something like this:
6. Take out the ?dl=0
7. Take out the www and replace it with dl
Your link should look something like this:
8. Now you can paste it into the code above where it says src=""
9. Paste the unedited url into the section with the download link.

Thank you for this post. Is there any way to add multiple song links so that they would play like a playlist/music queue?

As far as i know, you cant because it would require javascript which is not allowed in spacehey. But you can use a Playlist with the youtube autoplay.

Okay, I thought it wouldn't allow playlists somehow. Thank you!
