mp3 playbutton, the 'mp3-butt' (3 posts)

    I think del.icio.us has a great solution for a simple and easy mp3-play-button. Check http://del.icio.us/popular/system:filetype:mp3

    I had a brief look at the css and js files and I think it should be relatively to create plugin for WordPress.

    I can imagine that it could work like this:
    - you add an mp3-link to your post
    - enclose the links with li-tags and specify a mp3-butt class (class="mp3-butt")

    I never wrote a plugin for WordPress although I hacked a few a bit (for xhtml compliancy for example). Maybe working with a few people on this plugin would help.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    Oh and btw: it should be 100% xhtml compliant of course!

    yes, it's great idea, and i think this plugin : http://blog.taragana.com/index.php/archive/taraganas-delicious-mp3-player-wordpress-plugin/
    has already realized this function

    I dislike how the play button expands and pushes content to the right. I also dislike the "tag this" link.

    For my part, I use iFrames. (Yes, my code validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.) I place the following code somewhere in the index file (out of the loop, so that it doesn't appear more than once):

    [iframe name="songrequested" src="http://www.duskyspad.com/media/mute.mp3" scrolling="no" height="0px" width="0px"][/iframe]

    Then, I set my MP3 links like this:

    [a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/nameofclip.mp3" target="songrequested"]Audio Clip[/a]

    Oh, as you probably noticed from the code... the iframe originally loads an mp3 file that has no sound. I call on this file when users want to kill the music. It looks something like this:

    [a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/mute.mp3" target="songrequested"]Music Off[/a]

    You can see it all in action here (once you load the page, search for instances of "mp3"):


    I can easily change the links so that they display a play button instead of the text "MP3: Listen/Escuchar," but I think Google favors my site more if I stick with text.
