What is it?
using the sleek Flash Single MP3 Player & the fantabulous jQuery.
The Del.icio.us Playtagger is OK for basic purposes, but is not very configurable, can often incur startup delays, and is just not very attractive.
jMP3 aims to fix all that!
Listen to this sound:
Listen to, scrub and download this sound (conceal the filename):
Listen to MP3s from any website (hide download option... let's not get the MAFIAA involved!):
The call to this player is simply ignored if not an mp3 (see source):
- First, download the lightweight (3k)
Flash Single MP3 Player
(Feb 2007: looks like Jeroen has updated his player and removed the old version...
grab a local copy of the original Single MP3 Player compatible with jMP3 here)
- Then, grab the jMP3 plugin (you do have jQuery already as well, yes?)
- Set the path to singlemp3player.swf in jMP3
- Include jQuery & the jMP3 plugin scripts in the <HEAD> your page
- Initialize MP3 player on individual IDs (for customization), or generic classes (for lists of files)
- Rock out!
- UPDATE 11/9/06 - Mike Alsup has put out a fine enhancement to jMP3 that is unobtrusive and adds more configuration options. Check out his other jQuery work too.
- UPDATE v0.2.1 - Eolas workaround implemented (thanks Kurt!) and jQuery object replaces "$" (thx Sam)
» If you downloaded v0.2 earlier, please replace your jquery.jmp3.js file with the current version
- v0.2 -
