HTML5 based audio/video player, focused on podcasts and similar media blogs. It supports chapters, deeplinks, captions, social media buttons and more.
The Podlove Web Player is made for podcasts and other metadata-rich recordings featuring a HTML5 based player that with simple chapter mark support and a dynamic user interface.
This plugin also provides easy integration with enclosure-based podcast solutions like PodPress so that you can exchange built-in players with it.
Plugin is not compatible with several themes. Apparently, it can't be used by any theme that also uses Twitter Bootstrap. Of course, the plugin creator thinks that is a problem with Twitter Bootstrap and not his plugin. Rather than taking the time to make his plugin compatible, he would rather talk down to people and make snarky comments about proven WordPress applications.
When the plugin works, it looks cool. But, it will crash in Chrome and in Safari. Firefox plays well with it. But, who can afford to have a plugin on their site that might crash on half of the browsers out there? And, who wants to waste their time dealing with a plugin creator who places the blame for bugs on other applications without detailing how to fix the problems?
BTW, the creators also seem to want to carry on their conversations at GitHub rather than on the WordPress site. I guess that allows them to go around the WordPress moderators and not be called out as often.
Wroks fine with MP4 video. Enough for me :)
It just does not play video in FireFox
I inserted a bunch of audio files from the media library and had the WordPress enclosures checked so it would automatically turn the audio links to playable ones but it didn't work in FF, IE, or Chrome
