Play Music in Second Life and Alife Virtual

The http://yourserverip:yourserverport address should be added to a parcel of land so everyone on that land parcel will hear you play. If you own the land yourself goto "About Land". Click on the "Sound" tab and paste your music URL http://yourserverip:yourserverport into the "Music URL" field and hit enter tab. Close the dialog, and when you press play on the music player in your viewer you should hear your own stream. If you do not own land ask the Club Owner or Manager to change the URL for you.
