Cannot get audio player to work. (6 posts)

    I thought that WordPress had an audio player feature built in, since I've seen that player on so many websites. I thought that all I had to do was enter [audio http://something.com/something.mp3] Well this didn't work for me, for files I uploaded to WordPress or for files hosted elsewhere.

    So then I tried installing this plugin, but it failed to install, saying "The plugin does not have a valid header."

    I just want that simple embedded WordPress player that so many people use. I thought it was part of WordPress.

    Hi,

    Make sure that you have added require MIME Types on your hosting account in order to work it perfectly.

    Thanks,

    Shane, what do you mean? I said I tried embedding files from other places and from my WordPress uploads. I followed the WordPress instructions exactly. I don't need to mess with Dreamhost, right? I tried both my files and files from elsewhere, and every file I tried doesn't work. I doubt there's a problem with hosting.

    Oh, so you're trying to install the plugin via wordpress?
    Just copy the Audio Player 2.0 plugin folder to /wp-content/plugins and then go into your WP and activate it. :D
