Support » Plugin: mb.miniAudioPlayer - an HTML5 audio player for your mp3 files » Player doesn't work with filenames with accented characters

  • Hi Matteo,

    I tested the plugin by uploading a file called “música.mp3” (note the “u” with an accute accent) to the media library. When I link to this file to use the player, the player appears OK, but the track is reported to be 00:00 long and never starts playing.

    If I take the exact same file, rename it “sample.mp3” and upload it again, it works fine.

    This issue has an easy workaround, so I don’t consider it critical, but it may be something you’d like to look into.

    Thanks Leandro,
    I knew this issue; that should happens on Firefox as the jPlayer flash player doesn’t support special chars. I’ll see if encoding the URL can solve this problem.

    I have a similar issue with characters.

    Namely, the ampersand &

    The player will play Cheech & Chong

    However, when I click to download the mp3 with the download button, I get the expected pop up to save as yet the title is shortened to just “Cheech” and the file is 0kb.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    thank you!

    Can’t you rename the file?
    As the filename is passed to the downloader manager page as querystring the & character breaks the query parameter and the manager can’t get the file as it’s searching for a file that has “Cheech” as name.

    I can see to make this more robust but the best is to give simple names to file.
