8tracks Radio: Official Shortcode Plugin

Allows you to embed mixtapes from 8tracks.com via a shortcode.

Can I customize the plugin's output?

Yes! To help you customize the output via CSS, I've added a div around the iframes, which has this id: "tracks-div."
The iframe has a class also: "tracks-iframe."

Just add your custom CSS, and you're good to go!

I don't want to use HTML5, and I don't want to say flash="yes" in every single shortcode. What can I do?

This one's a little more complicated, but not too cumbersome. From your dashboard, go to plugins > editor > 8tracks-shortcode > 8tracks-shortcode.php.

Now, search for " 'flash' => '' " and replace it with " 'flash' => 'yes' ". (Ignore the double quotation marks.)

That's it. You will now default to Flash instead of HTML5.

You should note that 8tracks is no longer updating the Flash player, even though they plan to keep it around for now.

Is there any practical reason to change this?

Some themes render the iframe that the HTML5 player uses strangely, and then nothing plays. In these cases, fallback to Flash is the preferred option. Additionally, Flash is conspicuously absent on many Apple products. HTML5 is not. :)

Also, Queen wrote a catchy song about Flash, but so far nothing about HTML5.
