Audio player?

Post by volgograd » Mon Aug 25, 2014 3:21 pm

I am looking for a built-in mp3 (audio) player.
Many of the users don't have suitable plugins installed, and aren't able to install and use them correctly.
Any tips?

Wouldn't people just listen to the music they want on their own computer?

I listen to music on my iPad. I download my music from the iTunes Store.

But the files that the player can play, has to be attachments stored at the same host, or?

Does it work if the file is save somewhere else?
I want to let user play some files that are stored on another users site, who is a member. He has more bandwidth than what he needs. My site has less bandwidth

Attachments need to be on your host (server) but links you can use a bbcode [mp3]some link here[/mp3] so yes you can play from other sites as long as they allow you too.

It's not working for me. Do I have to add it as a custom BB code ?

what do you mean it doesn't work?

if you want to add a player to your board you must add it to your server, set it up etc.

then, you must create a custom bbcode that uses that player just like ones that use players from other sites.

Thanks for the explanation. Would you be able to recommend a player?

the one mentioned above might work once you get it set up. I have not looked at it.
or one like JWPlayer ( google for it ) will work.

If you are going to host the player then you will need to host the files as well. If I remember correctly, your goal is to let someone else host the files.

I would assume that they will have to host the player and the files etc. then you simply create the bbcode on your board that points to their player and the files just like the youtube bbcodes work.

personally I think you are going about this all wrong. host the files, let people use the players already built into their computers to play the files and be done with it.

I understand what you mean. I will think about this. Not sure what to do.

I am worried that it will take up too much bandwidth if I host it on the site. Maybe it's unnecessary concern. site says:
Monthly Bandwidth Transfer
1.29 GB / 1.91 TB
I used 1.29 GB out of 1.91 TB.

But that's just for development.
What do you think?

The files that I want are already on the other persons server. I don't know how many people might want to stream or download them.

first, you would have to do almost a thousand times what you already used each month before it would be a problem.

unless your site is all about music then I doubt your users would play them all that much to be a problem.
if the other person allows you to, you can move/copy the files to your server.

I am not saying you can't do it the way you want but it would be much easier to just host the files and let people use their own media players if they want to use the media.

The files are lectures and the person who hosts them don't mind if I take them. But he's on the server at a big university and has unlimited bandwidth, so it doesn't matter to him if I use it. He just put the files in a directory of a server he manages. When I discovered that, I downloaded every file to save for the future,and that was several GB. If 20 people do that on my site per month, then it's suddenly more serious.

Thank you for helping me so far
qkin is exactly what I want. But I can't get it to work.
I went through the instructions very carefully, and checked the comments for some of the fixes.
But it's not working.

I am not using prosilver and the only difference I can find between the instructions and my setup, is that one file misses an S at the end of the file name. attachments attachment. I find the text I search for there though.

Is there any alternative plugin to try since this doesn't work for me?
