Demo: http://codecanyon.net/item/zoomsounds-wordpress-audio-player/6181433

Please rate 5/5 – Updates with features and upgrades come consistently

 

A simple shortcode is required for the plugin to work – [zoomsounds] – and you do not even have to remember that because there are shortcode generators for both audio file and audio playlists

Supports self hosted mp3 / m4a / wav, and mp3 shoutcast radio stations. You can also embed SoundCloud songs just by inputing their link in the shortcode generator – that easy IF YOU HAVE A API KEY. You just need a soundcloud account and api key ( registrations are now closed ) .

Updates / Changelog

For updating, disable and delete the previous version, and install the new downloaded one. Or just unpack the zip you get from the download and overwrite the previous folder from wp-content/plugins/ via FTP

Or use ZoomSounds > Autoupdater for autoupdate

UPDATE 5.84 [ 05/26/2020 ]

  • [FIX] AutoUpdater fixed

UPDATE 5.82 [ 05/11/2020 ]

  • [FIX] colors for waveform and highlight color are now rendered correctly – set default in ZoomSounds > Settings, with the possibility to overwrite in Player Configs
  • [ADD] support for default settings in audio player configs – tutorial

Major update: A new admin has been introduced. This is designed from the ground up, based on feedback we received over the years for the old one. It is ajax enabled and changes are updated nearly instantly. Because the legacy admin and the new one are not compatible ( are based on different principles ), the change will not be done automatically. But, exported sliders from the old one are converted on import to the new one.

With that in mind, new install will upgrade the new admin directly. And current install will keep legacy admin, until administrators are ready to upgrade. If you want to import your legacy galleries, just export them from the legacy admin, switch to the new one ( from ZoomSounds > Settings > Playlists Mode ) , and import them into the new one.

  • [ADD] revamped admin panel for galleries
  • [ADD] duplicate support for player configurations
  • [ADD] new optional info button for skin-wave
  • [ADD] new demo in One click import
  • [TWEAK] waveforms are smaller in size
  • [ADD] specify wave form accuracy in settings
  • [ADD] option to clear all waveform data ( settings > delete settings > clear wave data )

UPDATE 3.40 [ 09/15/2017 ]

  • [TWEAK] youtube video stream displays too for youtube audio
  • [ADD] autoupdate support

I AM LOOKING FOR AN AUDIO PLAYER FOR MY WP SITE THAT WILL PLAY SONGS CONTINUOS / WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR STARTING THE SONG OVER WHEN A VISITOR BROWSES DIFFERENT PAGES,

For this, you need a ajax enable theme. Or a plugin that enables continuos navigating between pages without browser refresh ( like – https://codecanyon.net/item/ajaxer-ajaxify-your-wordpress-site-and-comments/15813677?ref=ZoomIt )

DOES THIS ALLOW CONTINUOS PLAYBACK?

Only if your theme supports that ( it does not depend on zoomsounds )

If you have a theme like this -> https://themeforest.net/item/qu-the-creative-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/17759297

( no page refresh between page change )

For music to continue playing while changing page

We also made a free plugin for any theme

– http://preview.codecanyon.net/item/ajaxer-ajaxify-your-wordpress-site-and-comments/full_screen_preview/15813677?ref=ZoomIt

for this purpose

is this plug in programmed to stop playing when another player starts playing on the same page

Sure, when another ZoomSounds player is clicked, the current playing one will be stopped.

A simple shortcode is required for the plugin to work – [zoomsounds] – and you do not even have to remember that because there are shortcode generators for both audio file and audio gallery

HOW TO ENABLE ZOOMSOUNDS PLAYER IN WOOCOMMERCE SHOP

The idea is to go to ZoomSounds > Settings > WooCommerce and enable Configuration for Loop Products to a player configuration you need.

Then ZoomSounds it will appear in any shop page / product cateegory

PS: The Products need the mp3 track uploaded in the ZoomSounds tab in any WooCommerce product

I’d like to have playlists from soundcloud, say like an EP but have multiple EPs on one page; is this possible? Will two instances play at the same time? Or could one pause?

At the moment, it’s not integrated with the soundcloud api to retrieve a user playlist. You can create your own playlist and add whihc soundcloud sounds you want.

Default is that only one zoomsounds player on the page plays. The other ones pause.

Also can it play MP3’s self-hosted?

Sure, it’s the main source. It can also play soundcloud, shoutcast radio…

You can insert that in the artist or song name spaces

My mp3s show infinity for length

You might need to reencode your mp3. Test the mp3 directly on th browser ( just input the link to the mp3 in the browser ) – if the browser does not have support for it then ZoomSounds cannot play it of course

I’m looking for an mp3 player plugin that allows download of the mp3s. The mp3 artwork (image) provides the title and then the play and download buttons overlay it. On the archive page we have the same but nicely arranged in grid layout.

Generally, yes

But

What do you mean by archive ?

If this is a custom page you set – then zoomsounds has shortcodes for this

If this is theme archive page, then your theme must have support for this grid

SoundCloud sounds do not work

You will need soundcloud api key – registrations are now closed for the moment.
