  • See other thread about MediaPlayer not working after update. What is happening is that the Mediaplayer.js is not being used for some reason and the browser is trying to use the html 5.0 <audio> tag to play it instead.

    Because of this, firefox cannot play mp3’s because firefox does not provide native support for the mp3 codec. (If you use the ogg vorbis codec, it would work in firefox, but not in IE or some of the other browsers.)

    If you just used the <audio> html tag you would get the same exact results you are seeing on your site.

    Go to the plugin site and download version 2.9.1, this version is working correctly. Alternatively if you have Jetpack installed you can use that to play audio files using the [audio "file"] shortcode. (with “file” being replaced with the location of the file)
