Media Player Placement
should i use frames?

Im designing a basic header/content/footer site where the content area is an iframe that swaps out the main area for each page. On one of the pages i have a playlist and a media player [jw player], the playlist is just rows of data from a php table which shows 8 rows at a time with next/prev buttons to cycle through the next or last 8 entries.

My problem is, each time the user clicks one of these buttons to browse the playlist, the entire page reloads which stops playback on the player. Im thinking the only way to get around this is with frames, right? Keeping the player in a separate frame so it doesnt reload when the php recordset refreshes?

You could also use hidden divs and just switch to the relevant div when you click. Might be another option.
