Frequently Asked Question #192. How do I add background music to my journal?

If you have a Paid, Permanent or Early Adopter account, you can create a custom style and adapt the code given in this tutorial to add background music.
Your journal's background music must be hosted by a webspace provider that allows remote loading to LiveJournal. You should ensure that you have permission to use the music as background music in your journal, either by gaining permission from the copyright holder or by ensuring that the music is not covered by copyright.

It may be possible to use other methods to add background music, but these other methods often lead to display problems due to non-standard HTML. LiveJournal Support is unable to offer assistance on methods not listed here.
