in thread WAV on a web server

I have the music file stored on the server and want them to play on the server. Right know I have a perl script that is launching mplayer via system. My only problem is that I can't seem to activate the script server-side via a client. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What do you mean by "Can't seem to activate the script"? Does the web server error log have any information? What are the symptoms?

    What good does it do to play the music files on the server? Is there anybody in the server room who can listen to them? If so, (s)he can simply launch the musicplayer via the console.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
