    Please take 15 minutes to write some instructions and include them with the installation.

    You say "files that are attached" to a post. How can you attach an MP3 to a post that your WP installation won't let you upload because it's too large? Using the From URL tab in the media uploader doesn't work -- just creates a link to the MP3 inside the post.

    Using [audio] as a shortcode therefore nets no results.

    Have become convinced that finding an HTML5 audio player that actually works is like unto the quest for the Holy Grail. Whole lot of nonsense screaming "run away, run away!"

    I echo peteratomic's sentiment, except I have found out how to upload media files > 1MB - use a plugin called "Add From Server". It ought to be possible to change the upload limit, but God knows how - there's no WordPress setting I can find, and php.ini contains "upload_max_filesize = 128M".

    Anyway, I would like to see a simple example of how to insert an audio player into a page so that the viewer can play the MP3 but not download it, as on Amazon/iTunes etc. - please! I'm just a beginner/amateur at this game.

    I'm getting frustrated with WordPress's documentation generally - many of the posts requesting help are closed off prematurely with no conclusion. I reckon I'm fairly smart, but I'm having a real problem finding out how to do relatively simple things. When I find out, maybe I'll write a document for dummies. Or maybe I'll just move over to Serif WebPlus for dummies.

    Sorry about the outburst,Scott, if it's any consolation you're not the only WordPress person in line for it!

    Most default installations include a very small file size. If you are unable to modify this file size limit, you could try using ftp to upload the files to a specific directory. There is a plug in called add from server that will allow you to browse to the upload directory and add those files into the media library.
