WavePlayer is a fully customizable, responsive HTML5 audio player plugin for WordPress. Its interface is built around the waveform of the audio file that is playing back.
With WavePlayer you are free to host your own tracks, breaking the limitations imposed by most of the free music cloud services available on the market, but without renouncing to a cool, modern player that you can customize to best match the look of your website.
Here is a list of the main features:
- responsive interface, with a modern looking style
- HTML5 support
- compatible with WordPress Multisite installations
- four different sizes that automatically adapt to your page
- full integration with the WordPress Media Manager
- Visual Editor in WordPress Post Editor
- archival of peak files for an instantaneous access to the waveforms
AS OF VERSION 1.3, WAVEPLAYER SUPPORTS EXTERNAL AUDIO FILES, GIVING YOU THE POSSIBILITY TO INSERT AN INSTANCE OF THE PLAYER FOR AUDIO FILES THAT YOU DON’T HOST IN YOUR OWN SERVER.
1.3.2 * NEW: The Info Bar automatically hides if one of the placeholders used in the template does not get replaced by any data value * NEW: A spinning icon shows the loading status of the player. This is particularly useful when loading a file for the first time or from a remote location. * BUGFIX: Getting peaks for remote audio files generates cross domain XHR error 1.3.1 * BUGFIX: Track's title not displaying properly when original audio file does not have the corresponding ID3 tag 1.3.0 * NEW: Introducing a new taxonomy 'Music Genre' for attachments * NEW: Create a player that will automatically include all audio files pertaining to one or more 'Music Genre' * NEW: Create an instance simply providing the URL of an external audio file: WavePlayer will retrieve all the info stored in the ID3 tags, including a cover art picture if available, and make a local copy for a faster future access (only the ID3 tags and the cover art will be stored locally, not the audio file). * FIX: Color Pickers now work also in the Media Manager, not only in the WavePlayer Settings page * FIX: Minor interface improvements
