[Plugin: Streampad Audio Player] Needs better documentation on how to set up (16 posts)

    I downloaded and activated and in the Settings I only see a window that shows a button for sync and to add, update, or delete existing mp3s

    I do not see anywhere where one can configure the player itself.

    I have wasted an hour on this an will move on.

    I have to agree. How do you put it into your blog? Can you put it in a sidebar? It's not a widget since it doesn't show up in the widgets section.

    How the hell does this thing work? And how does it have 5 stars on the plugins page?

    Streampad is not exactly a widget. It does not go in a sidebar, only sits at the bottom of the page.

    To add music, just create a link in your post that includes '.mp3'. Streampad will pick that up and play it.

    Hope that helps.

    I just installed and have the same problem. It does not sit at the bottom of the page as it does on your web site. I added a track to an mp3 file I uploaded and was hoping/expecting it would appear in your player. But no show.

    It looks like your plugin would be useful, if only it would work. I must be missing something in your instructions. Look at my site http://sustainabledelco.org and let me know what I did wrong.

    Streampad is freaking awesome. I wish it had more features; like automatic play and a random feature - but this works for now.

    Does anyone know if the updated versions will have these features.

    to edit the player, you can open up the plugin folder, and open up streampad.php.

    around line 66 is a line that starts with s.src = and ends in a url. you can add options to the end of the url.

    Here is the api that explains it (just one page, dont worry)

    I changed the colors on mine so it looks like this now:

    s.src = 'http://o.aolcdn.com/art/merge/?f=/_media/sp/sp-player.js&f=/_media/sp/sp-player-wordpressorg.js&expsec=86400&ver=9&trackcolor=ffffff&bgcolor=ff5a3f';

    @bobegods, you can make it autoplay, check the api link.

    @kosmar, that is a really good idea! you could download the source from here:


    Than copy it to your local directory, and replace the amazon link with your own. Did a quick search and it looks like this:

    if (streampadPlayer.vars.currentSongVO.album != null) {
    				amazon.setAttribute('href', 'http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw_2_10?url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords='+streampadPlayer.vars.currentSongVO.artist+'%20'+streampadPlayer.vars.currentSongVO.album+'&tag=streampad-20');
    				amazon.style.display = 'block';

    I dont know javascript very well at all but it seems like it would be easy. Code says its gpl and copyright aol? Would be an awesome fork thou.

    hi martinavive

    goto plugins->editor->streampad audio player-> and than select StreamPad.php

    now look for s.src = 'http://o.aolcdn.com/art/merge/?f=/_media/sp/sp-player.js&f=/_media/sp/sp-player-wordpressorg.js&expsec=86400&ver=2';

    add autoplay=true and it will look like
    s.src = 'http://o.aolcdn.com/art/merge/?f=/_media/sp/sp-player.js&f=/_media/sp/sp-player-wordpressorg.js&expsec=86400&ver=2&autoplay=true';

    update the file , ur done!

    I installed this plugin, checked the settings (it sees a number of mp3s),
    but the player bar doesn't show up on my site. Is there are certain
    required div or other layout element that this player uses? Or are there any known conflicts with other plugins?

  12. gmaddock

    Ok, I just noticed that the player shows up in IE,
    but not in Firefox (my browser of choice). If anybody has some
    insights, they'd be greatly appriciated.

    I may try to take apart the code a bit and figure it out later on.

    After a bit of testing, i resolved my issue.

    The main issue was the Event Calendar plugin, version 3.1.4.

    I upgraded to the 3.2beta2 version at http://wpcal.firetree.net/
    and there was no longer a conflict.

    I'm wondering how to customize the image for the cover art of every track. do you know?

    I can get the player to display, but it doesn't sync & locate any mp3s. I put my mp3s into the WP audio player. is that why? Thanks
