Support » Plugin: Audio Player » Audio Player not working in iOS5-iPad 2

  • Audio Player is not working on my iPad2 running latest iOS 5 (both mobile Safari and Atomic web browser).

    I get ‘Adobe Flash Player is required….’ message.

    Per the Troubleshooting page at, I verified that my theme’s header and footer templates do have the required code. (Theme is Brunelleschi 1.52.)

    Audio Player does work in Safari on my Mac, but Firefox 9.01 only displays the shortcode.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • I am looking for audio playback solutions also and would like iPad/iPhone support. Audio Player is a FLASH based mp3 player and iOS devices do not support Flash. This is working in both Safari & Firefox on the Mac for me.

    For iOS playback you can try one of the HTML5 with Flash fallback options such as: oEmbed HTML5 Audio >

    The only thing I do not like about this is that the player is rendered differently in each of the major browsers. Also, Firefox/IE 8 does not support .mp3 files at the moment so they will fallback to a flash player which also looks different. I am on the hunt for an HTML5 Audio playback solution that is consistent in appearance that renders a player with simple link conversion or shortcode implementation. If anyone is aware of one please let me know.

    It looks like mediaelement.js is exactly what you want. It provides a consistent (if somewhat plain) look across all browsers and offers much of the same capabilities as audio player except it should work almost everywhere including on iOS and other mobile devices.

    Thank you @theuiguy! I will certainly check this out! I think there is definite room for improvement in HTML5 Media and browser support!
