Can you please assist me that how to create my custom playlist in vimuse instead of youtube, vimeo etc. ? Here is an example of video I want to add And can we add direct link or have do download it first in a folder ?

Please go over the provided documentation where it has been explained in detail in how to create a playlist and initialize Vimuse. If your media files are not in the same server as the page in which the player is hosted then no media info can be extracted from it and you need to disabled the getId3Info setting.

cosmocoder, @Zain_Khan is helping me with the setup the vimuse player. He’s going to ask questions directly from now on.

cosmocoder, How can we build a playlist with out Youtube, Vimeo or dailymotion and is it necessary to provide Youtube API key in general player ?

I’ve to make playlist of videos with html type files like You can visit this link. If I do convert it into mp4 type and then add to play list then it can’t perform it’s actual activity we need that is QUIZ at the end of each file.

A media player needs media files not html files. Create a playlist following the instructions given in the documentation as I have said before. A Youtube api key is needed only if your playlist has Youtube videos. You can use postroll feature of the player to show html content after a video finishes playing (see documentation).

Please go over the provided documentation that explains how to set up the player in detail.

Hello, I have a question. this script can play Google Video (from Google Drive)?

I haven’t tried it so can’t say for sure.

Greetings Cosmocoder. I am having an unusual issue with the player. Playlist with ‘cache’ disabled does not function at all. Certain Playlists with ‘cache’ enabled work while other do not. Playlist with ‘cache’ disabled:

Working Playlist with ‘cache’ enabled

Non-Working Playlist with ‘cache’ enabled

The player has been working flawlessly for over two years now, Please help! Thank you.

Prior to this issue I did update the player. My hosting company confirms that no permission restrictions are applied to any of my site’s folders and/or files. The interesting thing is that only the playlists with a cache file available in the cache folder are played. All others, even instances with ‘enableCache: false’ are not playing. The player is not scanning any folder at all. What am I to do? Please help. Thank you!

Great news. All is solved. The issue is with the media-info.php file. By default, its permissions are set to 666. It needs to be modified to 744. I hope this solution will help all other purchasers of this awesome player who are having similar issues with the player not playing instances with ‘enableCache: false’.

Good to know that you were able to solve it!

I have an issue with just purchased Vimuse Player:

I use this with an Vimeo album and with auto-play enabled. Problem is that 2nd video skips to 4 and not to 3.

please see page here:


I see the issue in your linked page. I am currently away, but will try to get back to you as soon as possible next week.

any updates ? this is an bug in your script. Thx.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I found the cause of the bug that you reported and have submitted a new version for review. It should be available in a day or two.

Hi there, does your plugin support: - Image gallery? - Mixed media? (images, YouTube, Soundcloud, mp3 songs, Shoutcast, all in one playlist) - Option to buy tune? If so, can customers purchase via PayPal?

Also: - How long can a YouTube playlist be? I want a playlist containing about 200 videos. - How long can an mp3 playlist be? I want a playlist containing about 200 mp3s. - What level of IT skill do l need to install and customise this plugin?

This item is an audio and video player, and also supports Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, as well as shoutcast and icecast streams.

This item does not support Soundcloud. Your playlist of your own mp3 files can be as long as you want. You need to have knowledge of html, css and jQuery (and also JavaScript in general) in order to customize the plugin.

Vimuse player has both a jQuery plugin version (this is where you posted your comment) and also a WP plugin version (a separate item).

Is there the option for customers to buy a tune on the playlist? What’s the max. playlist length for Youtube videos? I take it l can’t host images in the playlist too?

Is there a slimline version that can play a song as soon as a webpage loads?

Is there the option for customers to buy a tune on the playlist?
The plugin gives the option to show a purchase link for playlist items. Note that it does not process any purchases itself.
What’s the max. playlist length for Youtube videos?
If you pull videos from a Youtube playlist then max 50 items can be shown. If you create your json playlist with Youtube videos then there is no limit.
I take it l can’t host images in the playlist too?
When you create your json playlist then you can supply custom cover images for each playlist items, even for Youtube/Vimeo/Dailymotion items.
Is there a slimline version that can play a song as soon as a webpage loads?
Check the demos to see possible layout options that the player provides you with. The player also has autoplay on page load feature.

Hi – Just bought the plugin, great work. Three issues I could use help with…I’ve searched here and not found answers:

1. I assumed I could use off-site audio files (so I’m not using my server bandwidth) for the audio-only player. I already pay a podcast provider to serve the files and manage the bandwidth. So how can I use the direct links to the MP3 files inside the player (instead of locally hosting the files, which would require me to download them and re-host them). This one is pretty critical for me to be able to do…since it takes links for videos (vimeo, etc) I assumed the audio media could be elsewhere also.

2. There is what appears to be about ~40px above the player when I place it in my theme on a page (like a gap, shifted down from where I want it to be). I know it’s not my theme, because I can place elements (other than your player) right up to the top. Can you tell me the CSS to remove this gap down to zero?

3. Also, the player appears to be about 400px wide. My theme allows about 700px and I’d like to fill it to that width. I’m not good with CSS, could you help me with the CSS I’d need to modify to get this to fit that width? I assumed the width would be a variable that could be easily changed in the admin panel since it said it was fully customization. Would really appreciate the exact syntax to fix this, thanks!

4. Has anyone requested speed controls on the audio player? Like to be able to play the audio file at like 1.5x and 2x? This would be really handy for podcast host playing, which is what I’ll be using it for.


You posted in the comments section for the jQuery plugin version of Vimuse, whereas it seems you bought the WP plugin version. Please this comment in that item’s comments section.

I just purchased this vimuse player. I am trying to get it to work with a Vimeo album. I added the necessary links to the jquery and vimuse-dark css file and added the js initialize code, but nothing is showing on my page. I checked the console and I get these errors: (note I removed the full url for security purposes).

XML Parsing Error: no root element found Location: http://linkremovedfor security/3rdParty/vimeowrap.js?_=1513634990720 Line Number 1, Column 1: vimeowrap.js:1:1 XML Parsing Error: no root element found Location: http://linkremovedfor security/3rdParty/vimeowrap.playlist.js?_=1513634990721 Line Number 1, Column 1: vimeowrap.playlist.js:1:1 XML Parsing Error: no root element found Location: http://linkremovedfor security/3rdParty/vimeowrap.lightsout.js?_=1513634990722 Line Number 1, Column 1:

I just purchased your vimuse player and am trying to use it to play a vimeo album, however I cannot even get the player to show on my page.

I am linking to the js and css files as indicated. I created a div with an ID of vimeo-player and I am using the below script:

$(document).ready(function() { $(’#vimeo-player’).vimuse({ showPlaylistThumbs: true, showFileTypeIcons: false, vimeoFeed: true, vimeoOptions: { source: ‘album’, albumID: ‘4877825’ } }); });

What am I doing wrong???

Never mind – I got it working.

Good to know you got it working.

I had to resize my video player (client wanted it at 100% width instead of 640px). It is still working nicely, however the vm-playlist starts to scroll under the vm-stage when there are more than 5 videos in the playlist. How can I prevent the playlist from scrolling under the video player?

Sorry again, I got it working. I just changed the width from 100% to a fixed pixel width for both the vm-stage and the vm-playlist (i.e. 825px max-width for both) and it is working nicely now.

Good to hear.

Dear Cosmocoder I have been using your plugin for over 2 years now but lately whenever I attempt to auto populate a json playlist, the cache json file is created but it has no content. I am not doing anything different than before. I did upgrade to your latest released version 4.1.5. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Maybe something changed in your server settings. Check your server error logs for hints about this issue. You may also need to increase your php memory limit.

Hi, I need to operate in offline mode (without internet connection) with mp3. What adjustments should I make? Regards.

Hi, my local server supports php, but it does not have an internet connection.

For example with the video player, getID3Info: true It looks good and loads the video playback time.

In the audio player, with getID3Info: false As it connects to, then it does not load the player.

There is some way to not connect to, because with that validation the audio player could work perfectly with getID3Info with php support on the server without internet.

I’m hoping you can answer me the emails I sent you please, thank you. Regards.

If getID3Info: false,

So, how can I add the playback time of a mp4 video and mp3 audio in the player?

In JSON: “duration”: “6:16”,

In page php00/html <script> var $ app = $ (’# player’). vimuse ({ duration: true,

It is right?

Yes, that is right.
