How do I put music into a Microsoft 2007 Publisher webpage, other than using it as background sound?

Question by abbie normal: How do I put music into a Microsoft 2007 Publisher webpage, other than using it as background sound?
I’m no Publisher expert, but I’ve been working on our church website and have it mostly functional. We’ve recorded in mp3 form several sermons that I would like to upload, but I hate to make a separate page for each sound file. Is there any other way for the website to play music? Are there any good music players that I can easily insert into Publisher? Thanks!

Answer by Colanth
Upload the sermon files to the site. Embed a WMP for each sermon. Make them all not autostart, so the visitor can run any one of them by clicking the Play button.

(And stop using Publisher – if you’re going to write a site [Publisher lets you publish, it doesn’t make you write – embedding something requires that you write], learn how to write a site, then use Notepad Plus or something similar to write it. It’s just text, you don’t need a publishing program to write text.)

Script Software Invites All Musicians and Music Labels to Embed Synchronized Lyrics in Songs for iTunes/iPod, using iStar Composer

Kapaa, HI (PRWEB) January 11, 2006

Script Software has announced at Macworld San Francisco an open invitation to all musicians and music publishers to start adding synchronized lyrics to every song they create using iStar Composer.

“Downloadable music is convenient but it has been missing one critical item and that is lyrics! In the 60’s and 70’s on the back of the record albums were the lyrics to the songs later in the 80’s and 90’s CD’s had the lyrics on the inserts. Amazingly, downloadable music has not included the lyrics,” stated Ben Dunton, software designer. “iStar Composer remedies this loss by being the first and only software that makes it easy for anyone to quickly embed synchronized lyrics in any song and even have them display sequentially in iTunes and on their iPods.”

There is a constant battle to convince users to abandon music piracy and purchase their music legally. By adding synchronized lyrics to their music, musicians and music publishers add value for the music lover, providing yet another reason to purchase rather then pirate music.

“iStar Composer doesn’t just add text. What makes it really stand out, for me, is the addition of karaoke timed lyrics to any song,” said musician Marty Howe. “This means when you hear a line you can see that line immediately in iTunes and on the iPod. Its both obvious and a breakthrough. Apple or Microsoft should buy this. I want my music to have embedded lyrics and I wish all music came like this.”

Download iStar Composer and see examples (music, podcasts, speeches) of lyric-enabled music here:

iStar Composer can be used for editing and displaying lyrics, opera, plays, musicals, karaoke, jokeoke (where people imitate a Robin Williams or other comedy routine), poetryoke (poems done to music), children’s stories or children music, church music, lyrics/text for the hearing impaired, translation of text/lyrics, text for podcasts, display of text for any audio track. Seeing just the title of the song and the artist’s on an iPod is not using its full potential.

“iStar Composer was designed to make it easy to add synchronized lyrics in minutes to any song. I personally want to invite every musician to try out the software and contact us if they have any questions,” Julian Miller, CEO of Script Software said, “It won’t be long before downloadable music will be judged not just on the song’s quality but also on what is included, such as synchronized lyrics or other multimedia.”

iStar Composer is . This version allows publishers to embed lyrics in any song. A musician or music publisher that owns the copyrights for that song can then distribute it with the embedded lyrics the same as any other downloadable song. iStar Composer works with Apple’s DRM for iTunes.

Using Television For Speaking About Religion

Using Television For Speaking About Religion

There are some people who are unable to attend church and find their television is the only outlet they have to hear God’s word. They tune to the community television station on their cable network to attend a weekly worship service and listen to the message about the love of God and the plans that he has for everybody’s life.

The television networks have created a Gospel channel that features clergy from many Faiths around the world and people have the opportunity to tune in at a regularly scheduled time to hear people voice their observations about the life of Christ and even the history of his death. When these clergy are speaking about God they have an authoritative tone to their voice that indicates the power of the Living Word.

There are other people who watch the church television program that are quite able to dress for church, are also lucky enough to own a car that could take them to church on Sunday if they had the mind to go. These people are quite content to use their televisions to see religious services because they like the anonymity that television viewing offers. While someone is speaking about God, these people feel very comfortable about cooking a meal at the same time.

These people quit going to church because something that was said struck a nerve. They still enjoy hearing the philosophical views of many evangelists but do not want to be pressured to contribute to the collection plate of a church that they used to visit only one or two times. They feel that the church is actually asking them to pay a price for hearing someone speak about God, and never seem to get the message about the price that Christ paid on the cross at Calvary.

Using television for speaking about religion is a useful tool that many clergy prefer because it gives them the opportunity to reach more people at one time. People come to the church services that are broadcasted on the television and people at home can see the looks of contentment on their faces throughout the program.

These people are not hiding their faith and ask for no anonymity as they sit in their pew. They want their visit to church that day to count for something so they sit patiently and listen to every word that is spoken. The community church programs make sure that the deaf can hear every word too because they always ensure that someone is standing in the background doing sign language so that the deaf will know what the clergy is speaking about.

Is your Church Social? Part 2: ?Using Video Sharing for Church Marketing and Online Church Outreach?

Is your Church Social? Part 2: ?Using Video Sharing for Church Marketing and Online Church Outreach?

I’ve started looking at ways churches can use social media to market their church online and reach others for Christ. One of the areas social media has really exploded over the last several years is video sharing. With websites like YouTube and, Internet users have found a place where they can share videos, be they funny, informational, outrageous, or uplifting, and people have taken to video sharing and viewing shared videos like a dog to a plate of bacon.

According to a recent document from Google (owners of YouTube), video sharing and viewing have become a regular activity for all demographics. Men and Women of all age groups and all education levels use video sharing websites like YouTube. YouTube has become the most popular entertainment site on the Internet and the sixth most popular website on the web. Here are some interesting stats from a few months ago:

• Hundreds of millions of videos viewed daily
• 10 hours of video uploaded every minute
• 72M unique monthly visitors
• 31% of home Internet users watch video on YouTube weekly, 10% daily
• The average US visitor spends 4 hours every month watching videos on YouTube

So, with so many people using YouTube and other video sharing websites, why wouldn’t your church want to get in on the action? It’s free, it’s pretty easy, and it can be very effective for getting your message out and with church marketing.

There are many aspects to Online video sharing that make it a great online church marketing tool:
• Online video sharing can be a great way to reach people who may not otherwise find your church’s website. By posting videos that link back to your church’s website and have your church’s URL in the video, you are able to direct people back to your site and help with search engine marketing.
• You can also reach people who would not normally even search for your (or other) churches by posting videos that are not “church-related” videos. This could be a funny (non-churchy) video or an informational video about something not related to church at all.
• Online videos can also be a means of changing the image non-churchgoers have of what church is.

In an article on, Pastor Michael Eaton of Holiday Hills Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas said:

“We are getting more traffic because we are running the same video on our Web site as (our) commercial on TV,” he said. “We also use this same video on our Myspace page.”

Many churches are starting to use websites like YouTube to market their church and reach the unchurched for Christ and are finding it to be a very effective church marketing tool.

“But We Don’t Have Thousands Of Dollars For Video Production!”
You don’t have to. Sure you can spend thousands on producing a professional quality video. You can hire actors, use special effects, and use the best cameras available…or you can use the hand-held video camera from one of you members and not spend a dime. Professional videos can work very well and depending on what message you are trying to get across, it may be best to spend a little money to make a more professional video. However, YouTube is about community and the regular Joe sharing videos with his friends and the world. So, a lot of videos on YouTube are just home videos. Your churches video can be as well. In fact, in some cases, you would do better to use lower quality home video. One of the things that attracts a lot of people to video sharing sites is the truth or real-to-life character of the videos as opposed to the Hollywood fakeness they see everyday on the TV.

Southern Hills Church of Christ in Abilene, TX has been using video sharing as a marketing tool for a couple of years now. In an article on, they talk a bit about some of the videos they have shared, including more professionally done videos like their “Churchgoer vs. Christian” series (a take off of the popular Mac commercials) and less professional personal testimony videos. One of members, Brandon Lewis, who works on their video production, had this to say about using less than professional videos:

“Even if it’s not the best quality, people love YouTube because so much of it is people just being real”

So, it doesn’t matter whether you have a video budget of ,000 or , your church can produce videos and post them on the web. Many churches already produce videos for other uses and many of those videos would be able to be digitized and posted on YouTube.

I encourage you to start considering how you can use video sharing to promote your church online and reach the lost for Christ. In the coming articles I will talk about ways you can increase the benefits of posting your videos and give some ideas for videos you can produce.
