Music Player Links Don't Work :( (14 posts)

    I'm in the middle of making an online music blog / magazine. I'm going to be using this plugin:
    n3rdskwat-mp3player
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/n3rdskwat-mp3player/

    For some reason, when you click a link, it doesn't play in the playbar. It should though.

    Here is a link to my test site:
    http://www.enberwebsite.com/musictest/

    When you click on the "10 - No Worries..." It does nothing :(

    I think this is a bug with the most recent version of WordPress and the plugin, because I've seen other sites where there links play in the playbar.. like this one: http://www.sourcezero.net/#/?p=501

    This would honestly mean so much to me if someone, anyone, could get this working for me. All I need is for the mp3 links to play in the playbar, like they should. I come here on this forum because the support forum for this specific plugin doesn't get any responses and there is absolutely no way to contact the creator of the plugin :(

    So again, if anyone could help me on this issue it would mean soooooooooo much.

    You need to check the plugin settings to see if there is an auto play option. When I clicked it, it loaded into the playbar and then when I clicked the play button it played just fine.

    Yup, I just installed the plugin on my dev site, there is an option to auto play MP3's, it's the first checkbox on its options page.

    Thanks for the reply! It means a lot! There is an autoplay feature with the plugin, but that just automatically plays the most recent mp3 when you visit the website. I do not want to do that. The problem with the plugin is that when you click the link to the mp3 (10 – No Worries (DatPiff Exclusive) under the MP3 test post) it should automatically play in the audio bar at the bottom of the page. Instead, when you click on the link... it does nothing. And that is the problem.

    You said when you clicked the link, it "loaded into the playbar" it did not actually load into the playbar once you clicked it. The song was loaded into the bar because the plugin just automatically loads the most recent mp3 on your blog. And for my blog, it only had one mp3 on it when you looked at the webpage. Now I have two mp3s on my blog, so you will see that it loads the most recent mp3.

    So yeah, I'd just like the plugin to play the song in the playbar when you click on an mp3 link. It does this for the link I posted in OP.

    Thanks for the help though bro! :)

    Alright... If you manage to get it working, it would honestly mean sooooo much to me! And again, the links to mp3's should play in the audio bar.

    I look forward to hearing the results! :)

    Ok, really not sure what is different on your site than mine, but I have a completely vanilla install of WP and just that plugin installed, created 2 test posts each with the same MP3's that you're using on your site, and when I click them they play... =/

    Sorry for the late reply I was playing video games with my brother, but......OMG!!! WTF!! I don't even know what to do right now, I even made a new blog and tested it there, still the same problem. Maybe its the jetpack plugin? What plugins do you have activated or installed on that dev.alieneila.net?

    This is soooo weird! :(

    And thanks for helping me out man

    The music player plugin is the ONLY plugin installed or activated on that site. Wish I could provide a better answer =/ I can't find a fix though if I can't duplicate it =(

    Damn! The only solution or answer to this I could see is that you are using an older version of wordpress? I dunno. I tried it with 3.3 and 3.2 and it still didn't work. But yeah, I doubt you are using an older version since you got the twenty eleven theme. I dunno if it has anything to due with my hosting company or if I should contact them.

    Like, it's super awesome knowing that it actually works. But it sucks right now because I have know idea why it doesn't work. And there's no help offered on the plugin really.

    I'll give it all I got and try a bunch of things. I'll report back and let you know how it went! :)

    Nope, just fresh installed the latest version of WP =/ It's a possibility of a server setting. I'm on HostGator.

    Just talked to someone over the phone on bluehost (my hosting company). They were really nice about everything and even went into my wordpress blog. I told them my friend (you alieneila) installed the same wordpress plugin on the same theme and it works fine. Me and the person on the phone updated my PHP from 5.2 to 5.3 and that didn't do anything. The girl on the phone said its something to do inside my hosting account but couldn't specify what exactly. :(

    I have no idea what it could be. I tried changing the writing permissions on a lot of files in the plugin directory but that did nothing. I'm kinda sad right now lolll. I don't want to change hosting companies just to get this one plugin to work.

    Do you got anymore ideas? Or anything that could be different between bluehost and HostGator?

    From the tests that I have ran on both sites, they work the same. On http://dev.alieneila.net/ there is no play bar at the bottom, when you click the link it opens a new page with only the player and it plays. On http://www.enberwebsite.com/musictest/ if you right click on the link to the mp3 and click open in new tab, it plays exactly the same.

    From what it looks like it is a problem with the player on the frontpage trying to load it. You may want to contact the person who made the plugin.

    My other suggestion is a different plugin. I have had good experiences with this one:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/media-element-html5-video-and-audio-player/

    I hope that helps.

    @bhpress: I disabled the plugin on dev.alieneila.net in order to test something for someone else, it was working just fine before that.

    @ianbee: I really have no idea what other kind of setting would be on your host that is different, but if even their tech support says it's something on their end, you should keep hasseling them until they fix it.
