as some of you already know, VOX has a widget that allows you to stream your or someone else's VOX audio collection, KVOX
with the KVOX player widget you can either stream an user's music by entering their name (whatever is after http:// and before .vox) in the box labelled "user" in my case, http://mariser.vox.com, I'd enter mariser. you can tick "neighbors" to also stream the selected user's neighbors music collections. then tick "shuffle" and click on the button "Launch". if you rather stream music from a group like Calliope No. 8 or MP3Meme, or any other, just enter the group's name on the box labelled "Group". you'll get several lines of code *; this is your widget.
to get the widget in your VOX sidebar, first copy all the lines of code generated on the last step. then click on "My Vox", choose "Design"; on the "Design" page choose "Customize your sidebars" a window named "Choose Content Modules" will open, tick the last option, "embed" and click on "configure". on the box that opens paste the code you copied under "widget code". you can give a title to your widget under "widget title" but that is optional, the KVOX widget will work either way. click OK, the widget window will close, and click the "Apply" button on the "Choose Content Modules" window.
*as an example, here is the code generated when I made a widget to stream the music from the Calliope No. 8 group:
<div height="330" id="player">
<object width="155" height="300"
<param name="movie" value="http://geo-vox.com/vox/mp3player.swf" />
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="quality" value="low" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="http://geo-vox.com/vox/mp3player.swf" width="155" height="300"
menu="false" quality="low" bgcolor="#fffff"
<BR><font face="arial" size="-3" color="red">Get a sidebar player for your Vox <a href="http://geo-vox.com/vox/playerwidget.html">here</a>
the text in red above is what you need to copy to create the widget in your sidebar
many thanks to Dave, who posted the link to the KVOX player widget
