Soundy Audio Playlist

Soundy Audio Playlist allows any page or post to play and display an audio playlist.

Soundy Audio Playlist allows any page or post to play and display an audio playlist.

This Soundy plugin can be used like its Soundy brother, Soundy Background Music, to have pages or posts playing an audio playlist in the background instead of a single soundtrack. However, this plugin can do much more than this: by means of the [sdy_pl playlist] short code, the playlist can be displayed anywhere in the page content. The page visitors can then interact with this playlist and control their audio playback experience with the following user interface features:

Front-End Features

  • Play/Pause button
  • Audio volume control slider
  • Soundtrack time positioning slider
  • Next and Previous buttons
  • Arrow keys soundtrack selection
  • Mouse click soundtrack selection
  • Mouse double-click Play/Pause
  • Display of title, artist and composer of current playing soundtrack
  • Audio-Player is responsive
  • Tools in plugin settings to make Play/Pause button responsive
  • List of soundtracks can be made scrollable and height of scrolling area can be set in the plugin metabox on a per page/post basis.

  • In the FREE version of the plugin, the administrator can set up and maintain an audio playlist which can then be played and displayed by any page or post.

  • In the PRO version of the plugin, each page or post can have its own playlist set up and maintained by its author.

The soundtracks are played by means of the HTML 5 audio tag. This way, the plugin is compatible with all modern user devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops of all vendors).

An author can have the playlist played by his page without displaying the playlist. He can have the Play/Pause button inserted or not. Or he can have the playlist displayed with its full user interface.

Defaults can be set by the administrator in the settings page of the plugin.

Specific post and page plugin settings can be configured by the authors in the Edit Page and Edit Post pages.

In the plugin settings page, an audio playlist can be set per default.

The audio tracks can be anywhere on the web as they are specified with their URLs. They can also be uploaded in the media library of the WP site.

A play and pause button image can be uploaded by the administrator to replace the default one and can be positioned anywhere.

This Play/Pause button can be positioned in a corner of the document or in a corner of the window. It can also be positioned with a template tag typically in the document header or with a short code in the content.

Back-End Features

  • Web module to maintain the playlist soundtracks (add, delete, modify, import, clear, change order, undo ).
  • Playlist Designer: web module in the plugin settings page to help the administrator design the playlist display and have it fit his website design.
  • Playlist appearance can also be controlled with CSS additionally to playlist designer.
  • Playlist Column Customization: order, show/hide, width in percent or pixels can be conveniently set by the administrator and the authors.
  • Play/Pause Button Designer: web module in the plugin settings page to help the administrator design the Play/Pause button and have it fit his website design.
  • Administrator can choose to upload his own Play/Pause button images instead of using the Play/Pause button designer.
  • Play/Pause button can be positioned in any corner of the browser window or the page. Scrolling of the button with the content can be controlled.
  • Play/Pause button can also be inserted with short code or template tag.
  • Playing Options can be set by authors like random or sequential playing, autoplay, audio repeat loop, etc.
  • Short Codes can be used by authors to insert User Interface elements like Volume Slider Control, Time Slider Control, Previous/Next button, etc.
  • Last but not least, the [sdy_pl playlist] short code can be used by authors to embed and display the playlist with full audio user interface in the middle of the page content.
  • The playlist can also be played by a page with different playing options without being inserted with the playlist short code.
