HB Audio Player is a highly configurable but simple Flash based MP3 player for all your audio needs. You can customise the player's colour scheme to match your blog theme, have it automatically show track information from the encoded ID3 tags and more.
Habari 0.6.x is no longer supported. Accordingly, I no longer supply a version of HB Audio Player for Habari 0.6.x.
You can now also download and contribute to HB Audio Player via GitHub.
If you're curious, here's a screenshot of the configuration page (click for larger image), oh and the colours in the configuration page demo player change as you change the various components to suit your needs...
That's it. You're ready to start using the audio player on your site.
The upgrade procedure is as per the installation procedure, but please ensure you de-activate the plugin first. This will ensure your current settings are merged with any new options that may be added with later releases.
The default mechanism for inserting a player in a post is to use the
This will insert a player and load
your_mp3_file.mp3 into it.
Multiple file can be specified by separating their paths/names with commas.
You can configure HB Audio Player with a default audio files location so you don't have to specify the full URL everytime. You can set this location via the Configuration panel. Once set, you can use this syntax:
HB Audio Player will automatically look for the file in your default audio files location. This can be very handy if you decide to move all your audio files to a different location in the future.
By default, HB Audio Player gets the track information from the ID3 tags of the MP3 file, however under some circumstances it won't be able to, for example if the file is on another domain. This is a restriction of the Flash player, but it can be over-ridden.
You can however pass the artist and title information when inserting the player using the following syntax:
[audio:your_mp3_file.mp3|titles=The title|artists=The artist]
For multiple files:
[audio:mp3_file_1.mp3,mp3_file_2.mp3|titles=Title 1,Title 2|artists=Artist 1,Artist 2]
That's it folks. If you encounter any problems, please ensure you are using the latest version for your release of Habari and then feel free to log an issue on GitHub.
