WPaudio MP3 Player
Does not work in WP 3.4.1 (11 posts)

    The plugin does not work properly in WP 3.4.1.

    The play button icon will show with a default install, but will only play the mp3 file once and then it becomes non-clickable. The playbar never shows up and instead just shows the filename in it's place.

    I tried the fix that etellewyn posted in another thread, but it did not help.

    Based on amount of support posts, it appears that this plugin has a lot of issues and is probably better labeled as an alpha or beta release, as it seems very version-dependent.

    yes, been unable to use the player with the latest WP 3.4.1 -
    i'm using the brunelleschi wp theme and original posts with wpaudio works still - however when i posted my latest mp3, it will only linkto the download file and will not play.
    has anyone had any luck with this?

    I am on WP 3.4.1 as well and only getting a link to an mp3, not the player.
    I did change the file that etellewyn suggested...

    does anyone know of similar mp3 player that is similar in its simplicity?

    Am reposting this for others as it worked for me as well, and thanks to etellewyn for posting.

    Look for this in wpaudio.min.js --
    {jQuery('a[href$=.mp3]').addClass('wpaudio');}

    and change it to this:
    {jQuery('a[href$=".mp3"]').addClass('wpaudio');}

    Thanks. Is this "hack" safe?

    @rawdolphe It is safe until the next plugin update, which hopefully fixes the issue.

    Seeing that the last update was nearly two years ago, I am not holding out much hope for this issue to be resolved.

    For now, I am using Media Element JS - http://mediaelementjs.com/

    Not perfect, as it does not seem to offer a download option, but it does play properly and offers fallback Flash and Silverlight support.

    So this plugin hasn't been updated since 2010 - is it safe to say this plugin is officially dead?
