This originally started as a test post, when I was trying to figure out a slick way to embed audio files in a WordPress post, with nice inline play controls. Sound Manager 2 is a great Flash/HTML5 hybrid audio player that just "does the right thing" depending on the visitor's browser, and offers lots of widgets for hosting audio files, so I settled on this as my player. I realized that others were also trying to figure out how to do this, so I'm cleaning up this post and leaving it up as a tutorial.
So, game on, here are the four widgets:
The 360 player
The inline player
The page player
The button player[mp3] Knockin' on Heaven's Door
I'm also linking off to a text file that contains exactly the content of my WordPress editor view, and an html file that does all of this in a standalone test page.
Hi, really interested in this, and used your instructions as you can see here:
bit the songs stop and dont continue to the next one…
what is your fix for this? thank you!
Sorry, I’m specifically looking at the scenario where I want them playing separately (for a blog where I write comments about audio clips). AFAIK this is the only behavior supported by the 360, inline, and button players. But I think if you start with the text I use and fiddle with the *page player* specifically, you can get the behavior you want. I’d ask what the best example is (forgetting about the blogger/blogspot aspect) at the SM2 forum:
Sorry I don’t have a better answer. Good luck!
