    I have found that using the Media Manager to embed .mp3 files doesn't really work for me because the embedded code will only work in Internet Explorer.  In other browsers, either nothing is displayed or I am prompted to install a plugin (which isn't good because I don't know what plugins my end users will have in their browser).

    What I would like to do instead is just create a link to the uploaded .mp3 file so that when they click on the link the file will open outside the browser.  I see that the Hyperlink Manager has a button to select a file from the Download Manager.  Can a similar button be added to select a file from the Media Manager?

    Or is there another solution that would work better for this situation?  Whatever help you can provide would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi Dan,

    In order to achieve the required result you will need to modify the callback function of the MediaManager's dialog to change the output of the dialog. You can achieve this using the approach provided in the following forum thread:
