[Resolved] Play/Pause Button is Missing on Natively Embedded audio
When I upload and embed mp3 files the player appears and if I click where the play button should be, it plays. However there is no button there. Everything from the GUI appears to be there – timestamp, length of audio, volume slider, position slider.
Bug? Something I need to double-check from the updgrade?
Hi Eric, could you please provide a link to a page where you are having this issue? It worked fine on my dev install here.
I used Chrome to delete the node for the top audio player and then the video played – looks like WP3.6 Media embeds with multiple players on a page seem to be troublesome…
Perhaps your server isn’t playing nice with the SVG mime type. Could you try adding the following to your .htaccess file?
AddType image/svg+xml svg svgz AddEncoding gzip svgz
Something is not working right on your site but it’s not a core bug. Let me know once you’ve added that — it may work or it may not 🙂
Edit: Also, if you could disable all plugins while we troubleshoot that’d be helpful 🙂
Just to confirm, did the .htaccess addition resolve this problem? It’s good to know for future folks who visit this thread.
After reviewing a bit more, it looks like some style being added at some point is causing the issue with the audio player button…could not nail it down, but I can see the button load then go away…if you have not customized twentythirteen, look at plugins….deactivate them all and test.
I had the same problem. I tried deactivating all plugins and still had the issue, but changing the .htaccess worked.
As a newbie, can you give me quick instructions to add this to my .htaccess without messing up my theme?
I use the Yoast SEO plugin that allows editing of the .htaccess file, but you should also be able to access it via FTP.
I’ve changed the .htaccess file and I’m still having the issue.
I’m using 3.8. Anyone have tips for showing the controls here? It loads and then disappears.
EDIT: Forgot to reload cache. Working like a charm after .htaccess edit!
