Audio Link Player


This plug-in converts all your mp3 links in flash players. The usage is as easy as add a link to a post or page.

The plug-in differentiates between mp3 links in floating texts, mp3 links as images and mp3 links in lists or on single lines. For every situation the plug-in decides which is the best player solution and include it in your blog.


  • Audio Link Player requires PHP5.2!
  • WordPress 3.0 or higher


You can change the association settings in WP Admin Panel » Settings » Audio Link Player.


The handling is very easy. Just add a link to a mp3 file in your post or page. The rest will be done by the plug-in. Of course you can also link images with mp3 files. These links will be converted to players which show the image and a play-icon in the middle of the image like you maybe know from video players. Give it a try! ­čśë

Single Line Player

You can overwrite the text inside the player by set a title for the mp3 link.

Info for Designers

The tags of the players get the following classes: “inline-player”, “single-line-player” and “image-link-player”. And every player has the class “audio-link-player”.
