IN my opinion, the best solution for this is Flash. The advantage is that
almost everyone has it and you can program in whatever you need. Another
advantage is that Flash has the ability to either stream an MP3 or to wait
for it to download before it plays. In either case, the MP3 lives on the
server and is not downloaded until it is needed. This makes for very small
Flash files.

I am sure that somewhere there must be a tutorial for how to do this, just
google it and I am sure you will come up with more information then you can

Hello again.

I'm in need of a way to play mp3's at random in the background while a visit
is browsing through the site.  

Anybody have any suggestions on the best/right way to do this?

Oh yeah, there are a number of music files, all mp3. The player should be
able to run through the playlist in random or sequential order.
