CodeArt – Google MP3 Player


The CodeArt – Google MP3 Player plugin allows you to easily embed any mp3 file in your wordpress website.
You can put the player in any post, page or widget area.

  • Added HTML 5 version for all browsers now, in case the browser doesnt support HTML it will fall back to the default flash player (in version 1.0.9)
  • Added HTML5 support for iPhone (in version 1.0.8)

How to use the plugin?

First after installing the plugin go to the plugin options page which can be found under
Settings -> Google Mp3 Player

Set up / change the default settings of the plugin here.

Note: You can overwrite these settings for each player you add, with using the shortcode attributes (explained below)

How to add/embed new player

Option 1: Copy the shortcode you are presented with at the plugin option page and replace the URL attributes. Best used when you want to embed the player in widget areas where you dont have the visual editor, or when you use just the text editor within wordpress.

Option 2: When using the visual editor you will see a small ‘note’ icon next to the Add Media button. By clicking that you will be presented with list of options which are needed for the player shortcode. You can change the default settings you have set on the plugin options page. Click Insert and you are done.

Note: It’s reccomended to use OGG files along with the MP3 files if you want Firefox to display the HTML5 player. By default Firefox does not support HTML5 with MP3 files. You can use this online tool

Example shortcode:

[ca_audio url_mp3="audiofile.mp3" url_ogg="audiofile.ogg" width="400" height="50" css_class="codeart-google-mp3-player" autoplay="false" download="true" html5="true" skin="small" align="none"]

Don’t forget to replace the example url’s with your real ones.

  • url_mp3 – Full URL to the MP3 audio file which you want to embed in the posts [Required].
