Can't it be done with media embed and for example youtube? Create a playlist and enjoy. I know that on social network like ok ru you can do what you want, but integrating something like that, is a waste of time and i don't think that anyone would do it for free.

you can do this just like you have always been able to by inserting whatever html code you need in the overall_header.html or overall_footer.html file of whatever style(s) you are using.

yes, it would be better to have an extension instead of editing prosilver etc.
you have requested it now you will have to wait to see if anyone is interested in creating one.

I would not hold my breath.

If it is automatic then this type of thing will make your visitors leave and not comeback. nobody likes music or videos to play automatically when they access a website. it is very annoying and besides, it uses up the viewer's data allowance pretty quick.

When a user is listening to a song, won't the music stop playing every time he clicks on a forum page?

I believe it would under normal circumstances. the page would reload and therefore start the song over again.

One solution may be to insert a clickable link in the navbar which opens a new page with an embedded media player of your choice, have you considered this?

As i see it, he wants a player that will play even when you refresh a page. Good luck with this request.

Presumably that would then have to be on a pop up window which a lot of people block these days. You're better off letting people listen to what they want rather than what you give them. Not sure if any copyright/broadcasting laws also come in to play.

There might also be issues with server load and/or streaming restrictions on the hosting account.

You don't need a popup or iframes or whatever if you have modules, but you may be right about laws and of course as David mentioned, we can't forget about server load + i don't see anyone taking this request as it is now.
One thing to add, is that there may be a way to integrate spotify or something similar, but even that is not free.

I don't know any music soft or app that is totally free or meets your requirements/wishes.
