Buggy, Hard to Setup, & Terrible Support
By , for WP 4.2.2

I liked this when I first started using the free version so I bought the licensed version, which unbeknownst to me, and not mentioned in the confusing install/upgrade instructions, promptly overwrote all of my playlists, which I then had to go back and recreate. This was no small task since all of the data, including file paths to the song files and image files, have to be added manually in the clunky back end. All kinds of boastful claims are made about how simple this player is to use and/or modify, you can change images, skins, remove social buttons etc...and for the most part, some of these are pretty straight forward for folks like me who are not developers but have a basic understanding of code. However, when I hit a snag and asked for help via the developer's site, I was arrogantly advised to "hire a PHP developer." Right, I'm going to hire someone and pay them $50 - $100 bucks an hour to help me troubleshoot a problem with a $25 plugin! What a jerk! Not a big deal since I can live with the limited capabilities I'm now faced with, but later on, I created a new playlist with over ten songs, again, a very labor intense operation with the clunky back end, and as soon as I go back in to modify it, lo and behold, the song order has been completely rearranged and the only way to fix it is to recreate the entire list and now all of a sudden, the playlist doesn't appear at all on a mobile device. So once again, I contacted the arrogant developer who asked me to give him my logon credentials to my site! Huh?? I though, you must be kidding. I'm going to send my logon credentials half way around the world via email to someone I've never even seen. Of course, I refused. He then asks me to provide versions of the plugin, PHP, and MySQL and tells me all of this is good, if I would provide him with my credentials it would be an easy fix, so maybe I should hire a PHP developer. Yaaaaa, and I'm not supposed to be insulted by this line of BS (again). My advise to you is hire someone to teach you how to run a business, you can start with a class on basic manners and etiquette because your software is not all that. In fact, I've already reviewed two or three other players that put this one to shame. Cya!

All kinds of BAD
By , for WP 4.2.2

Lets say you have a album of 39 tracks.
Lets say that you have 72 hours to live.

It would then be impossible to create a playlist before you die.
The process of adding tracks if so incredibly over-cooked and convoluted that it's hard to imagine that any thought went into it at all.
The songs already exist on my webshare right? So I have to add them one by one filling out titles, artists, length and then going to find the song and 'inserting it into post'

This could have been done a LOT better and frankly, needs a complete re-design.
The current asking price for this plugin is nothing short of robbery, even if it were $1...

Nice on the front end, needs a little work on the back end
By , for WP 4.1.1

It works nicely on the front-end, responding nicely to different screen sizes and devices.
It maybe the only plugin currently on the market that is playing nice with HTML5 media tags.

I would give it 5 stars if on the back end you could:

  • Import / Export (maybe via XML)
  • Global settings for stuff like background color, autoplay, etc.

HTML Playlist Free MP3 Player
By , for WP 3.9.1

This Is The Worst Plugin Ever And So Time Consuming I Wouldn't Pay 50 Cents For This Plugin Too Much Work And It Doesn't Work!!

Not working
By ,

I couldn't get it to create a playlist. When I visited the author's site, the demo seemed buggy as well. A shame...I liked the look of it and the feature list was just what I (would have) wanted. Surely the author realizes that unless the free version works well, few will risk the paid version. I really hope he gets it to working well, and with an improved user interface for creating playlists. I'll keep checking back.
