Hi, is there a way to have the audio playing in the background on mobile when the browser is closed like bandcamp and other audio players? I believe Web audio api allows this to happen. Is it possible to implement it to this plugin? Thanks


My plugin doesn’t have this feature. Plugin uses MediaElements library, and it can’t do that.


Hi. I wonder if on a page with registered users and profiles (ultimate member), users could create separate own playlist to other users.

Thank you,

No, playlists need to be created from the admin interface.

Hi, Does this have an option to use jplayer if not would it be hard to integrate it in place of the mediaelement?

There is no way to do that, plugin is made around MediaElement.



I already have created multiple playlists already using the native wordpress options available in the media manager. (featured image,detailed description,author,album, etc.) I HAVE even added categories.

My question is will I need to re-enter all of this data again into your plugin? I’m impress so far but was burned on a previous similar plugin. I sure hope not. I’d love to try this.

Thank you, Brent

WordPress can create playlists as shortcodes only, so my plugin can’t use these playlists.

But, if you want to create new detailed list with my plugin, by importing existing audio files, my plugin will use all the meta data you added to individual tracks, because it is getting data from WordPress. This includes: image, author, album and other things.


Are available download button and google adsense support?

Each file in the playlist has a download button (optional). I don’t understand what you mean by ‘adsense support’, please explain better.

I mean. Does using this plugin google adsense will reject?

I don’t understand, reject what?

Hi GDragoN,

Best regards,

Okay Thanks, I sent you message on Facebook with more information earlier. But , I will open new topic too. Thanks :)

I do no use Facebook for support, please post in the forum.

official support forum is opened looking forward to get help

Are you going to do some security so you do not know the source links? This is unlucky for me.

Sorry, but that is not planned. Plugin depends on WordPress media library, and Library has no features that will protect files real source. Also, to play something in browser player, you need to provide the URL to it, so basically there is no way to secure video/audio files at all.

Hello you did a great job, I would like to know Is there any possibility of this plugin working with youtube?

You can see this feature working here:

No, it doesn’t work with YouTube, it requires audio files to be uploaded, or linked directly.
