DescriptionWordPress Media 1.3.4 allows the addition of an HTML 5 audio and/or video player to your theme. It requires PHP 5.2 or higher. The player is an instance of the popular and stable jPlayer by Happyworm and can be inserted into posts via a shortcode, sidebar areas via a widget, or anywhere in your theme via a template tag. Multiple instances of the player on one page is supported.
If the visitor’s browser does not support HTML 5 audio and video, the player falls back on flash, so the browser compatibility is strong.
The player supports the following types of audio and video files:
HTML5 and Flash: mp3, m4a (AAC), m4v (H.264)
Optional counterpart formats to increase HTML5 x-browser support: ogv, oga, wav, webm
This player will play any local or external media file of the above types when provided with a valid URL. The plugin provides a system for uploading your own media files, but remember that the default upload file size limit on WordPress installations is 3mb, so using FTP to upload your files may be necessary.
The PSD source file for the controls images is included, so you can alter the color scheme of the buttons and by installing your own controls image in the plugin, your new design becomes available in the settings panel. No coding needed.
To uninstall without deleting your style settings, like when you want to update the plugin, delete the plugin via FTP instead of WordPress’ built-in delete feature. Using the default delete with erase the style options from the database.
There are features I would like to add one at a time to this plugin. Feel free to comment on which one you would like to see first: expand player to new browser window, default poster image option for video, and a play counter
