    Hi Dave,

    yes it supports iOS but iOS does not support any audio file, which file type you have tried?

    Hi Pascal, I have used this shortcode to launch the player:
    [audio ogg="" mp3="" loop="on" preload="on" controls="on" flash_fallback="on"]
    Please can you tell me how to re-write it?

    I read some considerations that I think could help: ios and html5 and also some experiments that resemble your plugin at uba player and also a new experiment with podcast and HTML5. Regards Gg

    please try the latest update (released some minutes ago)



    Hi Pascal, I’d like to thank you for all of your efforts on this. Sorry it took me a little while to reply to this thread, I have been away on holiday. Thank you also to gr1298 for posting the links above. I firstly confirmed the latest update works on iOS by running it on a fresh installation of WordPress, and with a creative commons mp3. Then I tried on my client’s site and it wasn’t working with the file they supplied. However I found out it wasn’t working with 192kbps and 96kbps files. When I uploaded a 128kbps file it worked great on iOS! I am very happy. Thank you for making this great plugin.


    I just tried this plugin. But it is not autoplaying on my iPad.

    Is there a solution for this?

    Thank you!

    Confirmed, PB oEmbed works well with WordPress 3.8.1 and iOS – well my iPad 3 for certain.

    You can now achieve a very similar player with WordPress core (and use the same short code) please see:

    There is generally no autoplay for html media elements on iOS devices.

    So in simple words, it is not possible to autoplay on a iPad? I haven a iPad 2.
