[Plugin: WPaudio MP3 Player] Bugs and suggestions (89 posts)

    Just installed wpaudio on my WordPress 2.8.4 blog, with the inove theme. The Player shows up, but whenever I click on the play button it just doesn't happen anything! I thought it's a problem with my Browser, but Firefox, Safari or even Internet Explorer do not work.
    I can click on the link to download the mp3 or play it just fine, so the path is correct.
    Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    You might miss standard of file itself (should be an mp3, not RIFF wav). Also, check frequency of recording - should be 44100 hz.

    Still doesn't work with
    underground-maintenance-notice.mp3: MPEG ADTS, layer III, v1, 48 kBits, 44.1 kHz, Monaural

    That's the correct encoding, isn't it?

    Really like the simplicity of this player. Thanks for sharing it.

    For my site I need to use it hardcoded in my sidebar sans shortcode (shortcode will only work within a widget and I need finer control of when the player appears).

    I plan to use custom fields to pass the .mp3 and title fields so that the player only appears if a file is available, and the sidebar can hold the file related to the post.

    I know I can figure out how to do the custom field values, etc,(I've done that elsewhere) but I would appreciate a basic example of how to call the WPplayer from the sidebar without using the shortcode (passing in a straightforward .mp3 link and title to the function).

    Happy to share the custom field trick once I get it working too. Thanks.

    I'll include a callable wrapper in the next release that will help you accomplish this. Shoot me an email using the feedback form on wpaudio.com and I'll email you once it's in place.

    I've a wierd question

    PICTURE LINK

    I've build my theme by my self, from scratch theme used by theme "default" which is included from the install.

    How can it come that I don't get up the flash player?
    Is there any stylesheet problem or is it with jS script? because the link i correct by the url.

    I'vent edited any functions.php, so I thought it could be something with it that need to having configurated with any kind of tag in functions.php but I'm not experienced about this so please help me?

    ...and yes I've test the default theme and it could display the flash thing

    You probably left out the wp_head() function.

    Hey Todd, the plugin is awesome and the support you've provided here has been incredible. I wish most other plugin developers were half as proactive as you are.

    I only have one request, which is that the CSS that's dumped into the header of the page be called from an external stylesheet rather than being pulled from the plugin's source code. It's not difficult to edit the source code to change some of the styling where needed, but it'll be overwritten whenever the plugin is updated with a newer version.

    Regardless, thanks for the awesome plugin and support.

    Theadsmith, thanks for the feedback.

    My plan is to make the CSS an advanced field on the WPaudio settings page, which would make it stick around after upgrades. Little more user-friendly than editing a file too. Would that work for your purposes?

    Glad you like it, and thanks for recognizing my efforts.

    hi there.
    what about autoinsertion of the player when there is a link to a mp3 file? thus not having ot manually insert the audio tags?

    Support for links is almost finished -- just need to test it a little more. It'll probably be included in the next release (about a week).

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hey there. I'm having a similar issue as Mr. Koffee, except the mp3 files I use are standard spec (128kbit or higher, 44.1 kHz, etc etc.)

    I had version 1.5.0 (i think? pre 1.5.1 for sure) and things were working fine in all browsers. I upgraded this morning.

    Now, in 1.5.2:
    -the "play" button doesn't do anything in any of browsers
    -the link text/file text isn't reading the ID3 tag info (it is displaying the file names instead)
    -the link is still directly to the file for download (works a-ok)

    Tested this with two separate computers. Windows XP SP3 with IE, FF, and Chrome and Windows 7 RC with IE, FF and Chrome.

    Hi Todd, wanted to say thanks for the amazingly fast support. I echo Threadsmith's sentiments.

    I'm planning on replacing AudioPlayer with your WPaudio. I appreciate the forethought to include the option to handle AP tags. Another feature I'd like to suggest is the ability to define a path to a default audio directory. AP includes this option and I (and I expect others) have used this for past posts. Rather than have to grep the whole database and risk other issues, this would be helpful in making the conversion.

    Also, I'm not sure if I'm clear on how to call the wrapper in my template. Thought I would ask you to post an example here so others can benefit as well. Thanks.

    Sliptide, could you post a URL for me to check out? I've tested 1.5.2 on WP 2.5 and 2.8 and haven't found any issues, but I'd like to see what's happening with yours. Thanks!

    Phototv, that wrapper is almost finished. There's one little change I have to make before it's ready. I'll post full documentation on WPaudio.com when it's ready.

    Sliptide, it looks like your theme is missing wp_footer().

    I would greatly appreciate the ability the customize the font of the text being displayed. See http://www.eduweave.org/blog. Any workarounds till you provide that feature via the panel? Is there a CSS file that I can edit? Would it be affected when I update WordPress? I am using the Thesis Theme.

    Thanks!
    Sheela

    p.s. I love this plugin! Many others just failed to work or did funky things. wpaudio was straightforward to install and use. Thanks a lot!

    I've upgraded 1 website to 1.5.2 and wpaudio doesn't work anylonger in IE, the play button does not respond at all, nothing is happening. I've another website using 1.4.0 and that still works ok. I have checked the footer.php, it does contain wp_footer code like:

    </div>
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    1.5.2 => http://euroloopfest.com/festival/?page_id=49
    1.4.0 => http://euroloopfest.com/sjaak2/?page_id=87

    Could you take a look?

    Thanks,

    Sjaak, would you mind disabling your other plugins for a moment on the 1.5.2 site to see if there are any conflicts? Thanks.

    I see that a layout fix isn't playing nicely with your site. The next release addresses that.

    I have disabled all the plugins (sociable etc), only WPaudio is now active. No difference so far. I leave them off so that you can check the page yourself ok (see url below)? Thanks

    Hi Todd,

    I'm trying to use the WPAudio plugin with the Composito theme from DesignDisease.com, but the play button appears greyed out in the posts. The plugin works fine with other themes I've tried, so there might be something missing from the Composito theme which WPAudio requires to function correctly? Can you check out that theme or let me know which theme functions are a pre-requisite before installing the plugin?

    Thanks,
    Clem

    Clem, broken themes are most commonly missing wp_head() and/or wp_footer(). If that's not it, post a test link and I'll have a look.

    Todd, thanks for your lightning fast reply!

    The theme had wp_head() but was missing wp_footer(). Since adding it to footer.php, the awesome WPAudio plugin has worked perfectly!

    Todd - any more news on when the wrapper will be available to call the plugin from a sidebar?

    Thanks!

    Hi Todd,

    Big ups for the plugin, really love it. But i just cant get it to work :( Did try to email you using your contact box on your site, but no response so not sure if you got it. I have the same errors as sliptide above has. Im not sure what you mean though by inserting code into the wp_head(). Could you break it down? I use the one theme if thats any help?

    Thanks.

    Hi Todd,
    We emailed 2 weeks ago about 1.5.2 not working on some of my wordpress sites. The status: wp-audio does not work with most of the themes I downloaded and tried.

    You say adding wp_head() and/or wp_footer() should solve the issue. But is there some documentation available about how to wp_head() and/or wp_footer()? I'm an experienced programmer myself but have no php WordPress experience. Could you point us in the right direction? Thanks.

    Hi Todd,
    Some additional information. I have tested wp-audio 1.4.0 and 1.5.2 with FireFox on Windows and Safari on my Mac: this works with most themes.

    IE7 however does not work with most of the themes I tried, even after adding wp_head() and/or wp_footer(). Theme K2 1.0-RC7 seems to work though, also with IE7. I even had a theme where 1.4.0 did work with IE7 but not with wp-audio 1.5.2.

    I have not tested IE8 yet because IE7 is still the dominating browser. Hope this info is of some value.
