Brilliant, but unfortunately not for tablets
By , for WP 3.9.1

So brilliant. Simple, easy to customize and simply looking great.
Unfortunately: it's Flash based, so it doesn't work on iPads and mobiles...

Would be 5 star in the past. Great if this plugin would have an HTML5 follow up!

The alternative that comes closest is http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-miniaudioplayer/, but that one doesn't look half as good and takes more effort to customize.

not compatible with all browsers
By , for WP 3.9.1

I used to run this player in my blog for years. But its not compatible with all browsers or mobile phones.
But now I found out a new html5 audio player that works in almost all browsers and phones without the need for adobe flash. The only exception is IE. But then again, what works in IE?

The new audio player is:
http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-miniaudioplayer/

It automatically replaces any mp3 urls into an audio player, with no need to edit any of your old posts, or type any chortcodes.

Haven't used it much, but works great when I need it. And it looks really nice.

Great, but outdated
By , for WP 3.8

This is the best audio player available.

The problem is, it's not compatible with wp 3.8 so it might as well not exist anymore.

Please release an update.

Cant See Where to add a file?
By , for WP 3.7.1

I looked @ the usage docs and can't seem to find how to add to a post. Is this just for widgets?

It has all necessary functions. Can be inserted into the post and comments, play link to external mp3, has language localization, etc.

Great configurability!
By , for WP 3.5.2

I installed this player on a new site some time ago, but could only get it to work as wanted on one page. The problem was that whatever audio file I entered into the coding on other pages, it always played the same long file. I never configured the Podcasting settings, but somehow it had saved this file as a Pre-appended audio clip. I was too dim-sighted to see this and too dimwitted to work out what had happened. In a hurry, I used another player. Today I decided to try again and found the cause of the problem. I am very happy because I have a colour scheme which I was only able to match using this player.

Thank you to jmboyd for his posting earlier about the style code to centre the player - it works fine! I had wanted to centre it, but hadn't spent time to try to change anything because of the other problem. This was the only other issue. Now I am very satisfied with the results.

Works as advertised
By , for WP 3.5.1

I had trouble finding a simple audio plug-in. This one works well. I added the suggested style code below and selected the 'non-animated' option so the icon stays in the middle of the page.

p.audioplayer_container {
text-align: center;
}

Thanks.
