WP audio player plug-in (3 posts)

    I have uploaded the WP audio player plug-in to my plugins directory and activated it in the admin plug-in section. But no extra button has appeared in the 'write post' or 'write page' sections and I have no idea how to actually embed an audio file into one of my posts/pages.
    I checked the readme files that came with the plug-in download but there is no info on how to use the new feature once it's activated.
    My blog is at : http://www.language-global.com/blog
    I am using the default theme.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me here.

    If this is the audio player from 1pixelout, there are a couple of options, but the default is to place the following in your post:

    [audio:filename.mp3]

    The plugin then peforms the operations to replace that with the player linked to the proper file.

    This also supposes that you have created a folder called "audio" -- on the same level with your WP folders -- to which you FTP the audio files before invoking them. Again, there are options for placing this folder elsewhere and naming it something else.

    Full instructions can be found at the link above.

    I'm afraid that's not the one I downloaded. The one I downloaded is Automatic Jack's WP Automatic Audio player 3.0, which can handle mp3 and wav files. I need the wav file option.

    Looking at Automatic Jack's site again, he says the plug-in is still in the beta stage and many people are posting probs with bugs, etc.., so maybe I'll try the audio player you recommend.

    Thanks for the information.
