Links to acquire music from iTunes are given at a few places on this site. However, installing the Apple iTunes software for this can have unwelcome consequences:
The player activated when following links to sound and media resources within Web browsers can be changed to the Apple QuickTime player. This player may not be as capable as that to which you are accustomed. For example, in Internet Explorer it opens and plays music in a new browser tab and so the music stops as soon as you move away from this tab, maybe to continue to read the web page where you clicked the link. Other players such as the MS Media Player open their controls in a stand-alone window and continue to play independently of the web page being viewed in the browser.
What makes this even worse, is that there was no simple way to stop QuickTime being used. It is very persistent, indeed the imposition of this into a browser (which was not the reason iTunes was being installed) and the difficulty of removing it has many of the characteristics of a "Trojan Horse".
Removing it required editing of the MS Windows registry. A set of details can be found here. However, note that the instructions given at this link have to be performed with Administrator privileges, a point which is not made until well down the thread.
There are a number of links to YouTube videos from this website. The example on the right is taken from the Graham Foster home page.
Unfortunately in some environments an error message or a circulating arrow can appear. This started to happen on Android tablets in August 2014 when YouTube made some changes.
A work-around is to refresh the page and then press the title on the left of the bar which appears across the top of the frame. If this brings up a choice of whether to use one of the browsers that are installed or the YouTube app (assuming this app is installed), then choose YouTube. Eventually the video will appear playing inside a YouTube page and can be expanded to full screen. On Android tablets tapping the screen (possibly twice) brings up the browser go-back arrow in the extreme bottom left-hand corner which allows a return to the web page.
A number of web browser "access keys" are enabled for some pages on this website. These allow keyboard short-cuts to be used to switch between pages. How these are accessed depends on and varies with the browser. For example:
