Embedded iframe with YouTube recording fails in some web browsers

This is a problem which has existed for quite a while, and it would be good to sort it out definitively.

Many of us use the "Share" option to embed an HTML "iframe" of the MuseScore player in our own website. It's really useful for making practice files for choral societies and church choirs.

With a MuseScore file that creates its own playback, it usually doesn't matter which web browser you use: it plays normally.  But if the score is sync'd to a performance recording on YouTube as the default sound source, then the playback doesn't work on all web browsers. 

Here is the result of a test of various browsers which I ran today:
-  Chrome 73.0.3683.75  = broken
-  Edge 42.17134.1.0 = broken
-  Firefox 65.0.2 = plays ok
-  Internet Explorer 11.648.17134.0 = plays ok
-  Opera 58.0.3135.107 = plays ok
-  Vivaldi 2.3.1440.60 = plays ok

You can run the test yourself on my HTML page, where the SATB player is linked to a YouTube performance by Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir:

Privacy when submitting work to the group

Is there a way to add files to this group without making them available to the public?

I have just added some work on the 4th movement to the group.  SInce I did not want incomplete work visible to the public, I made the file private. I then found that I could not add it to this group.  I suppose this makes sense, since the group itself is  public and would have given access to a private file.

In the end I just made the file public - I suppose this has the advantage that it might give a bit of publicity to the group for potential transcribers!

Best wishes to all,

Musescore's customer support is horrendous. I have tried sending multiple emails which have all been ignored, and Musescore pro charges in annual $49 payments? I have tried to cancel my trial subscription after settling on a different website for transcription, and when that didn't go through, I was charged. I am a high school student and I am trying to dispute this, but Musescore's complete disregard for their customer base is disappointing for such an excellent website. Pro Gift Cards

I was just wondering the possibility of this ever happening. A year's worth of Pro membership for $50. My parents have discussed getting me one for Xmas before, but they couldn't figure out how to do it without signing their credit card away.

I would also use this instead of entering my own credit card info for security reasons (This is what I do with iTunes so that my credit card is not at all connected).

I also have considered holding contests on the site and a year of Pro would be the prize, but I certainly don't want to give a stranger my credit card information for them to sign up.

So I'm wondering the feasibility of gift cards. (Alternatively PayPal?)

Offering long comments (read description)

I want to practice my writing skills and also listen to some new pieces, so I’m offering some longer “story”-like comments where I make up an interpretation of your piece.

The rules are as follows:
1. The piece must be complete. (Length doesn’t matter)
2. The piece must contain variations in texture, expression, etc. (Basically no technique exercises)
3. The piece must be original.
4. Not all posted pieces will be commented on.

I will write a little blob of text and comment on your piece. Comments are varied in length and depends how relatable I find the piece.


Changing Noteheads

Hello all, 

I realize that there is a web page that does address changing note heads. Unfortunately for some reason MuseScore is not allowing me to change that at all. The part that I am trying to change it for is for a drum set part. I am using the latest version (as of 3-20-19) of MuseScore, 3.05.

Additionally I would like to be able to change some of the note heads permanently. Specifically have "side stick" be called "cross stick" and change the note head with one that has circle around the notehead. Then I would have the "rim shot" with the cross note head.
