    Unfortunately i just updated wordpress and now when i click on the "Audio Player" button to insert media from my library NOTHING HAPPENS! Now i have no idea how to stream music in my posts. Does anyone know how to insert music manually? Do you know if the creator of this plugin will update it to be compatible with 3.4?

    I'm experiencing the same problem and it started with the upgrade to 3.4 for me as well.

    You can manually enter the audio shortcode into your post as follows:

    [audio:http://linkToMP3File]

    Replace "http://linkToMP3File" with the "Link URL" for your audio file.

    I am having the same issue too. Clicking the Add Audio button doesn't display the shortcode in the Link URL entry field. I'm a little worried this won't be fixed since the plug-in hasn't been updated since January 2010.
    Manually entering the shortcode isn't really an option for my clients.
    Can anyone recommend a replacement plug-in?

    Confirming that audio player is no longer working for me, either.

    Yes, It's possible to do a manual link, but that's not the same as having the audio player on my page. Are there other audio player plug-ins that are compatible?

    Yup, WP 3.4 killed the plug-in for sure. I've looked around the plugin depository, but haven't found something to replace this.

    My clients love the ease of this particular plugin, and I hate to have to find something else. Even worse, I hate to have to train my clients on how to use something different.

    The manual method does not work for me. The player appears but says the file cannot be found. Kind of sucks since my site is audio-centric. Hope an update is coming but I won't hold my breath. No updates for this plugin in 2 years!

    3.4 seems to have a problem with all audio files and plugins which is pretty annoying and no word from back office that I've been able to find.

    If you're using Firefox, it could be a problem with Realplayer and you need to turn off web download and recording:

      Launch RealPlayer
      Click the RealPlayer icon in the upper left corner of the window and choose Preferences.
      Choose Download & Recording from the left hand panel
      Uncheck "Enable Web Download & Recording for these installed browsers"
      Click OK and close RealPlayer
      Restart Firefox

    @shootingparrots
    I do not think it has to do.
    I think it's a change of adding HTML to the caption.
    This problem.

    Yeah, my real player settings were already set to what you described. No dice. Still have to add the audio player by writing out the shortcode.

    at least you guys can still insert the audio tag manuallly and get it to work. When I do that it can't find the target file when you click play. Anyone else have that behavior?

    for me, this audio player bug is the moment to switch to an other player
    http://mediaelementjs.com/

    you have to change the code ([audio src=http://www.fileurl.com/hitmusic.mp3])
    manually, which will be more work... yes.
    but compared to audio player it works on mobile devices like iPhone, iPad too...
    which is definitely an argument for me..
    and it has a smart design.

    I am also having problems since I updated to 3.4.

    When I upload the Mp3 and click onto audio file the URL link disappears :(

    Any suggestions? or do we wait for an update from the developer?

    Cheers

    FIX:
    In audio-player's plugin files, edit audio-player.php. Line 684: change value to data-link-url

    For people using the plugin-editor.php and can't see line numbers, do a search (ctrl-f) for urlaudioplayer to find line 684.

    When you are done the line should look like:

    $form_fields["url"]["html"] .= "<button type='button' class='button urlaudioplayer audio-player-" . $post->ID . "' data-link-url='[audio:" . attribute_escape($file) . "]' title='[audio:" . attribute_escape($file) . "]'>Audio Player</button>";

    Excellent! Hopefully the plugin developer will include this in an update soon. Just so everyone has the full solution. You need to change:

    $form_fields["url"]["html"] .= "<button type='button' class='button urlaudioplayer audio-player-" . $post->ID . "' value='[audio:" . attribute_escape($file) . "]' title='[audio:" . attribute_escape($file) . "]'>Audio Player</button>";

    To this:

    $form_fields["url"]["html"] .= "<button type='button' class='button urlaudioplayer audio-player-" . $post->ID . "' data-link-url='[audio:" . attribute_escape($file) . "]' title='[audio:" . attribute_escape($file) . "]'>Audio Player</button>";

    @mslocumm thanks a bunch! Worked like a champ! I figured the solution was a simnple php tweak but I had no idea what line to look at. Glad it's working again. Hope it sticks after the next WP update.

    This had been bothering me and I really appreciate the fix, makes my life easier. What seems a bigger problem for me is that the player has stopped showing up in firefox! That's a really big problem.

    Hello!

    Thank you for this post. We are also having trouble with the audio player plugin on WordPress 3.4 and have edited the .php code found on line 684, via @mslocum and @VFHwebdev. However, the player still does not show up on any posts. The plugin is activated yet it shows an empty space on the post.

    We would appreciate any support to get this resolved, thank you!

    VFHwebdev!
    Changing the code help to take care of why the URL code would disappear. Thanks!! However, now what's happening is the player does not display now. Just the URL. That's it. I've updated, etc, etc. Nothing. Anyone else running into the same problem?

    And now the code is edited as above, but it keeps saying "Buffering" and won't play the audio. Now what?

    It looks to me as it might be an issue with Firefox now. After I made the suggested fix to the code, the player seems to work in both Safari and Chrome but in Firefox the pages keeps trying to load and the player never shows up at all.

    My player is also not showing in any posts, despite my changing the code on line 684. Any other advice?

    hi guys,

    i have a weirder problem with this plugin ...

    I installed it on my localhost test wp ... created the audio directory, populate the directory with mp3 and it works ... without any tweaks ( changing the value to data-link-url )

    When i did the same thing on my server ... doesnt work ... at all ... with or without changing the value to data-link-url on line 684.

    What about that guys ... isnt this just wonderful ?

    Just a random thought.... I experienced this problem, for the first time today, and had never run into it (buffering forever, and no playback). I was using a free theme called Esplanade. I switched themes and it worked. I think someone near the top of this thread had mentioned a theme issue.

    Anyway, it's obvious that there is some code issue with certain themes that prevent this from working (I've got a lot of WordPress sites and had never seen this before)....
