how to develop dynamic music player web page?

I wanted to develop a music player web page that fetches audio files automatically from a specified folder and adds to the list of music in the page. so that whenever there is a new audio file in that folder it adds to the music list which then can be played. How to do it in php and html?

Cool project! But too big for us to fit all the details in a single answer. You will need some javascript if you want to automatically grab new songs. You need to break down the problem: 1) Write a PHP program that prints out the list of songs in that folder (google: glob php) 2) Write a HTML/Javascript application that asks your PHP code to return that list. (google: fetch javascript) 3) Put it in an <audio> tag. 4) Once you are there, worry about the next steps. You will also need a webserver - have you heard of XAMPP?

Schindlabua thank you for your help. It is really great. I designed the page using html and css. I also have some basic js knowledge. Html DOMs. The only place I got stuck was in php, didn't know how to fetch the files and how to automate it also. It was a great help. Thanks again
