Support » Plugin: Haiku minimalist audio player » Flash Player Update Required Message

  • Katherine


    I recently installed the updated version of Haiku Audio Player and am receiving a message saying I need to update my flash player to the current version. I am using Google Chrome, and it tells me that Flash player is updated automatically.

    The box appears on page load, and stays put until the text player has fully loaded (i.e. there is a total time for mp3 clip showing). It seems to be tied to the haiku-no-solution class, and I can set it to display:none, but the page load is still impacted by the message.

    You can see what is happening at this URL:

    I am using a custom theme with the latest version of WordPress. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

  • The player on your page works for me, Firefox 19.0.2, Win7. Maybe you found a solution? Resolved?



    No, I never got it “resolved” – my solution was to remove the code in the plug-in files itself. I never heard from the developers, so I did what I had to do for the best user experience.

    I also tried it on Safari, same issue. I did not try it on a different computer.

    same problem here : I have a blinking error message before the player loads.

    everything works fine except this blinking error.

    wp 3.5.1
    haiku player 1.0

    I hope you could solve it and thank you to the dev for this nice plugin btw.

    Katherine: What code did you remove? I’m having the same issue on my site:

    I like your redesign of the player. Did you do that by making a custom player using the custom player settings, or did you fiddle with the code directly?

    If you put this code in your theme’s main stylesheet, the message won’t display:

    div.haiku-no-solution {
    display: none;

    The player still seems to take a moment upon page load to “situate itself” but this does at least get rid of the big box with the flash message so it helps!

    Thanks so much Janelle!

    Does it matter where I put that code in the stylesheet? I’m a bit of a noobie to CSS.



    Janelle: I tried your solution at first, but the page load time was still WAY longer than what I was comfortable with. It will not display it, but the code behind it still executes.

    crispinfreeman: I removed `<div class=”haiku-no-solution”>
    <?php _e(‘<strong>Update Required</strong><br><span>To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your <a href=”” target=”_blank”>Flash plugin</a>.</span>’, ‘haiku’); ?>

    I show it as line 306 in haiku-player.php.

    I also used the css to redesign the player, I did not use a custom player since I am using the text version, not the graphical player. Hope that helps.

    Anyone from Haiku want to weigh in?
