WordPress Plugin:Flash MP3 Player

Introduction

Huo is one of my best friends I get acquainted with on the internet. She want a music player which can be put on the sidebar of her blog. She is a newbie in the internet and . Although to create a XML config file and playlist is very easy, it is still too hard for a green hand like her. That is why I created this plugin—making it easy.

Widget support and user friendly administration interface are the most important two features of this plugin. But the features of the player itself, e.g. shuffle the playlist, are not under my control. The player this plugin used was found on the internet, they are created with flash. This kind of player has the best browser compatibility.

The flash player of the first version(8.x~9.x) of this plugin is like this:

The first version of the music player

I found this player on the internet and I don’t know who is the author. This player is very simple. You can not change the color scheme and make full control of its dimension. Its advantage is tiny, just 8k bytes.

The flash player of the now version(10.0.x) of this plugin is like this:

New version player

This player is the famous JW player(the latest version of it is v4.4). I choose the version 2.3 because it is tiny(9.5k bytes) and it is good enough to be a MP3 player. You can change the color scheme of it, change the background image, set the default volumn, shuffle the playlist and so on. It’s great!

FAQ

Updated:(2008年9月23日20:08:07)已经修复了不能支持PHP4的问题了,插件的内部结构也做了小小的改动,升级的时候也不会覆盖原来的播放列表了。升级说明看这里。

Updated:(2008年8月19日20:08:07)非常遗憾,此插件目前只支持PHP5及以上版本。这是我考虑不周了。如果是PHP5以下版本的同学想用,可以装上,但是不能在后台编辑播放列表,必须手动编辑playlist.xml文件。

曾几何时,我在一个博客上看到这个播放器,那时候,那个是装在Default主题上的,觉得很别致,很好看,后来,那个博客不知怎么关掉了,所以我就找不到了。

前些日子,由我作为客服支持的博客《双霍记》提出播放音乐的需求,我开始狂找这款播放器,终于给我找到,遗憾的是,竟然不是一个网络服务(我个人比较喜欢网络服务类的),是一个单机的Flash版本MP3播放器。

为了便于伟大的上帝(就是霍霍,客户嘛)使用,我将其Widget化了,播放列表的那个xml文件,也通过后台管理页面来读写了。

这里我上一个后台截图,具体效果可以看霍霍博客:《双霍记》 《所谓伊人在何方》
