Continuous Uninterrupted Audio Stream while navigating
Does Soundy allow having a continuous uninterrupted audio stream playing while navigating on my site ?
Because most of the WP themes create and download a new HTML document in your browser each time you navigate to another WP post or page, the answer is NO for such themes.
However I can imagine that there could be themes which don’t download a new HTML document when you switch to another WP post or page. They would rather use Ajax to download the WP post/page in the content area of the downloaded unique main site HTML document.
If such themes exist, then, YES, by using such a theme you could have a continuous uninterrupted audio stream playing while navigating on your site.
While navigating in the bottom menu of this site, the audio stream is not interrupted and remain continuous as the theme doesn’t download any new HTML document while navigating in this menu.
Having a continuous uninterrupted audio stream playing while navigating on a WP site with Soundy plugin might be possible with some themes but on most themes, it is impossible.
Here, at WebArtisan.ch, we are considering developing a theme which will allow this valuable feature. This will be the Soundy Theme.
If you know of other themes like the Crea WP theme which don’t download new HTML documents while navigating on the site, please, let us know !

This doesn’t help me. How do I actually make this continuous uninterrupted audio stream playing while navigating on my site. There is no instructions
There is no instruction because continuous uninterrupted audio stream is impossible for now. The way WP themes work, don’t allow it.
Well, this is sucks, this should be removed. People shouldn’t be downloading this. Waste of time. Luckly, I found a paid plugin and works great.
Can you give us the link to this paid plugin which works great ?
There are actually several html5 players that do this. The keywords to search for are “html5 sticky audio bar” and such. I’ve found 5 so far that work great, so it’s definitely possible for a WP theme to have it. In fact, it’s not related to the theme at all. It simply needs to use jquery to make it happen.
There’s a band website host called Zoogle that modded jplayer to work on an uninterrupted sticky footer bar. I know because I saw the code, and they literally copied wads of code straight from the jplayer source. Unfortunately since jplayer was released under the MIT license Zoogle is under no obligation to release the source of their player to the public. It’s possible to reverse engineer it though, with enough knowledge.
