Yahoo! WebPlayer

Embeds the Yahoo! WebPlayer plugin into your site to play back media links (music and video) and monetize purchases via Amazon.

  1. unzip the file
  2. drag the created folder it into: wp-content/plugins
  3. activate the plugin from the 'Plugins' tab by selecting the 'Yahoo! WebPlayer'
  4. choose where the code should be placed (header or footer). placement in the footer may improve page load times, but may not work with certain themes.
  5. change the version of the player through the 'Yahoo! WebPlayer' section under 'Options' (optional)
  6. configure the settings for how you want the player to behave
  7. enter in your Amazon affiliate ID
  8. add audio links to your page. for example, something like:
    • <a href="http://mediaplayer.yahoo.com/example3.mp3">Yodel (mp3 link)</a>
    • <a href="http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810096458/info">Tron (Yahoo! Movie link)</a>
    • <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i56XeM0-b8Y">Zoetrope (YouTube link)</a>
  9. the player will detect these links, render a play button next to the media, and include the media in the playlist
  10. enjoy :-)
