Please note: I'm guessing that the answer to this question probably needs to come from an audio engineer, someone who knows the nuts-and-bolts workings of MP3 tags and customizable flash players.
I have a file containing a number of mp3 tracks which can be accessed online (and yes, all the required music licensing fees have been paid). The playback is done using a flash player I had built, which automatically plays one track after another. Each time you listen to the file, the tracks are randomly shuffled, so that you do not hear the playlist in the same exact order.
The player was designed with some simple user controls, one of which allows a listener to hit a forward arrow graphic and skip to the next track, if the listener so chooses. I need to know if it's possible to "fix it" so that the skipping function can be disabled for particular tracks.
The first thought that crossed my mind, not being an engineer or an audio expert, was "Could the solution be as simple as adding some bit of information to one of the mp3 track information tags to 'tell' the player NOT to skip to the next track?"
So there you have it, audio experts. Let me know if you need more info and/or if this is a simple or complicated challenge.
