Download link to WordPress Embed Media Player (4 posts)

    When I add a WordPress Embed Media Player I would like a download link to also show up automatically. How do I do that?

    I could also use a plugin to do this, if you have any suggestions. It needs to be HTML5.

    Thanks for your help.

    One of the updates for 3.6 is: "Built-in HTML5 media player for native audio and video embeds with no reliance on external services."

    See http://wordpress.org/news/2013/08/oscar/

    There isn't a built-in way to get a download link to show up automatically, but you'd just press the Add Media button one more time and add a link instead of a player the 2nd time around.

    I'm not that familiar with the audio player plugins out there, so I'm not sure if there's a plugin that will auto-add a download link together when you insert an HTML5 audio player, but try searching at http://wordpress.org/plugins/ if you haven't already.

    I would also like the download link to show up automatically as well. I will be working on a site that has some non-technical users that may not like to have to link the same file twice.

    Let me know if you came across a solution. If not, how do we make this a feature request?

    What I eneded up using is the Blubrry PowerPress Podcasting plugin. You can see how it works on this website HERE Hope this helps.
