The method explained here will help you to post MP3 audios on Facebook. Follow the below steps.
Step 1: Create a website for your Dropbox – Learn more.
Brief explanation: Go to site44.com and create a domain. if your domain name is myname, then whatever the files stored in Apps/site44/myname.site44.com can be publicly accessed by myname.site44.com. So, a filename.html file can be accessed by myname.site44.com/filename.html provided filename .html is stored in that folder.
Step 2: Convert the MP3 file using your favorite MP3 to SWF converter and upload the converted SWF file in the Apps/site44/myname.site44.com folder.
Step 3: Copy the below code to Notepad or any text editor. When you save the file save it in a HTML format.
You can also download the HTML file directly from the below URL. You can directly upload the below file directly to your dropbox folder for a demo.
Step 4: Edit the above code by replacing MUSIC_TITLE_HERE with any music title, SWF_FILE_LINK with the public download link (discussed later in this article) of your SWF file, MUSIC_DESCRIPTION_HERE with a short description of your music, FILE_ADDRESS with the file address of that file and IMAGE_LINK_HERE with any image link. This image will be shown before a user plays the music.
To get the public download link of the SWF file that you have uploaded, go to the folder Apps/site44/myname.site44.com and locate your SWF file. Right click on your SWF file and click on Share link. If any dialog prompts you to share by Email, just close them. Now, you will be getting a download link for your SWF file. Right click on the Download button and choose “Copy link address”. this will be your public download link of your SWF file. Replace SWF_FILE_LINK with that address. If ?dl=1 is appended with the URL, then remove them See that the download link ends with .SWF or .swf.
So, what is FILE_ADDRESS? When you save the code with the name music.html and if you upload them in Apps/site44/myname.site44.com folder, then the FILE_ADDRESS will be http://myname.site44.com/music.html.
Step 5: Log in to your Facebook account and just share the URL:
You are done!
