Generate playlists automatically from mp3s attached to your post/page. Requires Jetpack.
Audio support in WordPress makes me cry. No native player, the fields in the Media library seem wrong for audio, and let's not get into ID3 tag reading. The audio shortcode and player provided by Jetpack is a step in the right direction. However, the ability to directly create a player or playlist on a post/page from attached mp3s makes me sad again. Writing that shortcode is nasty business for anything beyond a file or two.
And what about the [gallery] shortcode for images? So easy to round up all your attached pictures and display them all automagically. Why no love for [audio]?
This plugin acts as a wrapper for Jetpack's [audio] shortcode. It rounds up all the mp3s attached to your post/page and adds them as a playlist in the Jetpack player. Simply attach your mp3s to your post/page and use the shortcode "[jplaylist]" where you want your playlist
JEP supports all the options that [audio] does, and now allows you to call up attachments from other pages/posts. You can also turn on "list mode," "random mode," add download links, and even a pop-up button.
