Music on GoneTooSoon
Log in then click on ’My Garden’, choose the desired memorial. Then click on ’Edit Memorial Details’, then ’Edit Music’ and then ’Upload New Music’.
Up to 3 pieces of music may be added per memorial as an mp3 file. GoneTooSoon Sponsors may add up to 10 mp3 music files to memorials they have created. mp3 files must not have DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection. mp3 files with this protection will not work on the site (sorry this is out of our control). As of April 2009 most mp3 files bought through iTunes have DRM. If in doubt about whether your file has this copy protection, please contact the website or company you bought the mp3 from and ask.
If the mp3 file has been successfully uploaded, it will then be ’queued’ for up to 60 minutes while we process the file, before it can be played.
In order to hear music on GoneTooSoon you must have the latest version of Adobe’s flash player installed. This can be downloaded free from www.adobe.com/flashplayer.
The music on the site keeps stopping and starting
This is probably due to the speed of your internet connection which causes a delay in the music being uploaded. If you keep the music running it will eventually play continuously.
