Fullwidth Audio Player
This audio WordPress plugin allows to add a audio player at the top or bottom of the window. The audio player runs with the new HTML5 audio engine and if its not supported, it will use a Flash fallback. In other words it runs on all major browsers and mobile devices like iPhone, iPad, Android etc.
You have also the possibility to add your playlists and tracks into a post or page. This very helpful when you would like to create a music page, where the visitors can view all tracks and add them to the player by themself.
You can add the player to all pages of your WordPress site or using shortcodes to make it visible for particular pages.
WordPress Media is an audio WordPress plugin that allows the addition of an HTML 5 audio and video player to your theme. The player is an instance of the popular and stable jPlayer by Happyworm and can be inserted into posts via a shortcode, sidebar areas via a widget, or anywhere in your theme via a template tag. Multiple instances of the player on one page is supported.
If the visitor’s browser does not support HTML 5 audio and video, the player falls back on flash, so the browser compatibility is strong.
This audio WordPress plugin provides a system for uploading your own media files, but remember that the default upload file size limit on WordPress installations is 3mb, so using FTP to upload your files may be necessary.
The PSD source file for the controls images is included, so you can alter the color scheme of the buttons and by installing your own controls image in the plugin, your new design becomes available in the settings panel. No coding needed.
Uber Audio WordPress Plugin
The Über Audio WordPress plugin is designed to provide the ultimate listening experience from your sidebar. Über audio allows you to put together a custom playlist quickly and easily. You can create and store multiple playlists in the admin options of Über audio and then select one playlist to display at a time.
There’s no limit to the number of tracks you can add to your playlist. The design of Uber Audio gives the user the ability to show or collapse the playlist for a simple viewing experience.
Über audio has been tested and is compatible with all major browsers. We’ve also tested mobile devices like iOS and Android. For the best cross-browser compatibility it’s recommended using .mp3 files. Uber audio will play mp3′s, .ogg’s and .wav’s file but the consistency across browsers isn’t as good with files other than .mp3′s.
Über Audio has two different color schemes to choose from; a dark version and a light version. You also have the ability to adjust the primary and secondary colors.
