Always preloads and autoplays (7 posts)

    Hi John,

    How do we address the problem of files preloading and auto-playing despite these being set to preload="none" and autoplay="false"?

    This is the case no matter which browser is used.

    I am interested in hearing a solution for this issue too.

    I have several podcasts in a page an I cannot have <MOBILE> users to preload them all.

    I will wait a couple of weeks for a reply whether this can be achieved or not, as well any usefull support is appreciated . . . after that a BIG NEGATIVE COMMENT to a WordPress and any related pages suggesting any users to avoid this plugin because it CONSUMES UN-NECESSARY BANDWIDTH . . and comes without support.

    I know you work on your spare time on this. Bear in mind that we are surrounded by pieces of crap software that do not work. Paying support? Tell us before you publish 1/2 working software, we can have a choice.

    (a disappointed users)

    The one I have found has been modified to work with HTML5 (mobile devices)

    The full thread can be found in here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/audio-player-2041-with-html5-fallback

    Basically you install the plugin audio-player http://www.wpaudioplayer.com

    And replace ./audio-player/asset/audio-player.js content with this content: http://www.masswerk.at/audioplayer/audio-player-html5_src.js

    Then in your post/page insert preload="none" to avoid the preload, example:

    <audio src="http://source/audio.mp3" preload="false"></audio>

    It works in Chrome; FireFox; IE; iPad . . . I am happy

    Thanks. Need to keep the audio/video version to limit the number of plugins loading.
