Everything has installed well with the upgrade. But before when you played a track from another player the firsrt one playing shut off. Now they play on top of each other. Is there anything I can set or is this a bug? Thanks again.
What you are describing sounds very strange to me. As you can see from the EXAMPLES PAGE on WavePlayer’s website (which uses the latest version), when you start playing a track on an instance, any other instance currently playing stops.
This is also because all the instances in one single page share the same <audio> element, that gets created at run time. So, a single page containing multiple instances of WavePlayer would share the same <audio> element that, obviously, can play only one track at a time.
The only situation where you could end up having the behavior you are reporting is when you (or your theme) embed each instance is a separate <iframe>. In that case, every instance would be loaded as each had its own separate page and its own separate <audio> element. This configuration is not recommended by design, as you may incur in a limitation in most browsers that limit to 6 the maximum number of audioContexts.
Maybe something else changed in your website causing that issue?
Let me know how I can help.
Hi, did some testing for v.2 and found that the css won’t render properly in Safari 8 and below, IE 10 and below, iPhone 6 and below, ANY iPad with iOS 8 and below. Any plans for improving the legacy compatibility? Tested the waveplayer.info, so it has nothing to do with my setup. Thanks!
Thanks for testing my plugin so diligently across so many browsers. WavePlayer is fully compatible with ANY device using a browser compliant with the HTML5 Audio Element requirements and the CSS flexbox specifications.
I am afraid your claim that WavePlayer is “not compatible with iPhone 6 and below” is a FALSE STATEMENT. What is true is that WavePlayer is not compatible with Safari 8 and below and that iPhone 6 originally came out with Safari 8 and iOS 8. You seem to ignore, though, the fact that iPhone 6 owners who have not upgraded to iOS9 or iOS10 are about 2%, with more than 95% already upgraded to iOS10.
For example, I personally own an iPad 2 (late 2011), upgraded to iOS 9.3.5, and WavePlayer works as expected. We are talking about a 5-year old device.
In January 2017, people using Safari 8 were 0.8% (zero point eight percent) of the total web users.
Regarding IE 10, as you may notice in the “Compatible Browsers” section of WavePlayer, the plugin was never advertised as compatible with that browser. And it is not surprising, considering that in January 2017, people using IE10 to surf the web were 0.0% (zero point zero percent).
Ultimately, if Apple and Microsoft themselves dropped any legacy compatibility of their products with older versions, I don’t see how a single developer would be able to guarantee any legacy compatibility.
All the statistics I mentioned come from W3Schools and are based on an audience of 45 million monthly visitors. (https://www.w3schools.com/browsers/)
So, to answer your question, I would love to guarantee legacy compatibility, but I cannot fight against the trends of the market. Not as a single developer against Google, Apple and Microsoft.
I hope this clarifies your concerns and gives you a better perspective of the compatibility issues you are referring to.
Thanks for your inputs.
Microsoft announced end of support for IE 10, as of January 12, 2016 (more than one year ago).
Thanks for the quick reply. I well understand your reasoning, it wasn’t my intention it imply that your plugin was not up to standards.
Yes, I agree with your iPhone6 point. It was the original OS.
We test based on what browsers / versions we see in analytics, so while the general statistics may suggest we should ignore the older browsers we have to rely on our data first. Yet again, that’s our choice based on our particular situation so I’m not implying that you are obligated to do the same.
Thanks again for your reply and keep up the good work. Cheers!
Of course, I understand your observations and truly appreciate both your comments. Please feel free to share with me the results of your analytics, even using a private message, and I will see what I can do.
I would hate to know that a fellow AudioJungle composer is not fully happy with my plugin.
Please let me know.
Moving further with v2 tests.. noticeably faster, great improvement!
Having some troubles with externally hosted files though. The peaks are ok but the info file is 0 size and the thumbnail is missing. All files have standard meta data and thumbnail images. v1 is able to generate everything properly for the same files.
Thanks for your detailed report regarding the issue. Please allow me to look into it and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I was able to reproduce your issue. A cover art file gets created but with name, just the extension. So WavePlayer is not able to find it next time the same file gets played back. As for the info, I have not found the bug yet, but I am working on it.
Let me get back to you later.
I found and fixed the bug.
Please update to version 2.0.9, whenever available.
Thanks again for reporting the issue.
Hello will this work on mobile?
Based on January 2017 W3Schools stats, WavePlayer should work properly in the browsers used by more than 95% of people worldwide, including mobile devices.
Since WavePlayer is built around the HTML5 audio element, you can find a list of compatible browsers at the following link: http://caniuse.com/#feat=audio
I hope this clarifies your question.
Hello, How can i generate like and download button under the player “its realle hard to see the download icon!
WavePlayer is fully customizable adding your own set of CSS rules and making every element look the way you like for your website.
If you are comfortable with customizing the CSS rules yourself, I will be more than happy to assist you. Just write to email@example.com, including the URL of your website and the credentials of an administrative user.
I look forward to assisting you.
How can i change the Download icon to a Button?
Everything can be done with CSS rules.
Be assured that I received your private message and am working on it.
I truly appreciate your patience.
I just purchased the Wave Player and wanted to use them to stream mp3s form blogtalkradio.com/abpn to my site at almightyballer.com. however, it doesnt appear to be working! Let me know how I can do this.

Sorry for my late reply. Your message arrived while we were transitioning to a new hosting provider and we failed to receive any notification from Envato.
Regarding your issue, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org, providing me with the URL of your website and, possibly, the credentials of an administrative user of your WordPress installation.
I want to customize the look of the download button, may be add an image button that says download in my page here http://dhemssa.com/audio/
My users are noobs and dont understand the download icon.
Please help me do it.
We are working on a new update that will enormously improve the customization capabilities of the plugin.
In the meantime, please consider writing to email@example.com and I will help you with your current configuration.
Hey, great work with all the additions! Just wondering, is there a way to make the previews show up on the cart section as well? Usually when shopping for tracks people like to go through them once more before they make the final purchase. I think that would be really awesome!
It sounds like a cool feature. I will consider adding that in the next update.
Thanks for your input.
I want the playlist to be opened showing all songs when the page loads like it does on your demo page. How would I accomplish this?
Please refer to the Display Info option located in the “Player Options of the WavePlayer Settings.
The third option in the list, “InfoBar and Playlist”, is the one you want to select to have the playlist displayed by default when the page loads.
Please note that this is going to change the default behavior, but you can still override this on each instance, when you create a new player using the “Add Media” button in your posts.
If you have any further question, please don’t hesitate.
That worked perfect! This player is really nice and I appreciate the quick reply. Thanks.
You are more than welcome!
Is there a way to utilize one of the wp ftp plugins with a mobile app…where the mobile app records mp3 file then send via ftp to the server and then a wp plugin installs the file into the media library and then waveplayer can set it to a genre that then can play in the page right after upload? Hope that made sense. Ideas.
That all makes sense.
I am not aware of such a plugin, but it would be interesting to see if that already exists and how one can possibly set it up to interact with WavePlayer the way you suggested.
Hi, so I have lots of testing ideas, or in this case searching ideas out. There are numerous mobile apps for any phone platform that will ftp to the server to a dedicated folder(s). Then there is a plug-in for wp called “Media from FTP” and it will Register to media library from files that have been uploaded by FTP. Now the interesting part is if it is possible to incorporate the use of WavePlayer and have it so as you can choose to hold the audio as draft or publish in an automated way to an existing page that has a genre already set up in the player. Your thoughts??
That would be very easy to setup. WordPress allows for taxonomy templates. WavePlayer registers a custom taxonomy for audio files, which is “music_genre”.
Therefore, you can simply create a template file in your theme (or child theme) folder and call it “taxonomy-music_genre.php”. That way, when you go to www.example.com/music_genre/<one_genre>/, WordPress is going to use that template to render whatever you put there.
At that point, it is just a matter of writing the code responsible for rendering the page. I have already a working example, which detects the term requested in the permalink and renders an instance of WavePlayer with all the files belonging to that particular genre. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share it with you.
I tried to contact you a few days ago as suggested, however I have not heard from you. I hope my message got to you. Thanks
I received the message and will get back to you on Monday. It is rare that I don’t work during the weekend… but sometimes it happens!
Thank you…I try not to work sometimes.
I have just sent you an email with all the details to implement this idea.
whats up bro… can you please send the css that you have on the demo? to send the icons to the right etc.
The demo you can see from waveplayer.info uses the default CSS, so you should be able to see that without any change.
You might want to edit the templates for both the info bar and the playlist row, though. Please follow the tutorial on this page: http://www.waveplayer.info/info-bar-playlist/
I hope this helps.
hey thanks for your time.. i found out what it was… it was my theme there was some css making everything going to the left instead of the right ( only on the player) but i got it work.
another question,,, it is possible to add 2 prices like 49.99 and 149.99 ?like for different licenses type.
WooCommerce allows you to manage the scenario you describe as “Variations”. Unfortunately, this can be configured only if you create “variable products” instead of “simple products”, while WavePlayer currently supports only the latter ones.
<source src="<?php bloginfo( 'url' ) ?>/audio/mp3/<?php echo $post->post_name;?>.mp3" />
But I’d love to embed WavePlayer in my posts! Thanks
WavePlayer has an option, enabled by default when you first install it, that will override any <audio> element with a WavePlayer instance. So you don’t really have to change anything in your code.
Depending on what you are trying to achieve, WavePlayer might offer more flexible solutions, though. Therefore, please feel free to share with me your needs.
Looking forward to assisting you.
Hi, Great plugin. I’m enjoying it greatly. I noticed that when I change a featured image in my media library for an mp3, the thumbnail image on the player always displays as the “default thumbnail” set in the plugin settings. Where should I look to troubleshoot? thank you!
Thanks for the nice appreciations. I am glad you are enjoying using the plugin on your website.
Is there an URL that I can look at to help you troubleshoot your issue? If you mind providing me with the URL of your website, you can always drop a line to email@example.com
Hey, sorry I know I do not have support anymore but the player is not working at all. I have tried everything. Turned off all my other plugins. Says this on the player settings. “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home1/tonedist/public_html/wp-content/plugins/waveplayer/includes/waveplayer-woocommerce.php on line 421
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home1/tonedist/public_html/wp-content/plugins/waveplayer/includes/waveplayer-woocommerce.php on line 451” and when I try to load a track the image jumps from small to large back and forth and doesnt load the music. I know I dont have support anymore but would be really great to figure this out. Just want it to work. Thanks Luigi, I will link you some extra coin if we manage to figure that other thing out.
*I know that the new wordpress I had to alter the code seen here because the new wordpress apparently does the image files different. Perhaps that is where the issue lies? https://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/40075/40075.patch
Yeah I even just tried loading an mp3 from the twentysixteen theme with only wavplayer on and nada. It just stops spinning in two seconds like its not even reading the file.
Ok update, the tracks are loading now and show the artwork and music, but the image when loading the player into a text box from visual composer still jumps sizes back and forth continuously. The warnings are also still on the backend settings. Feel free to delete this comment string, I dont want to make people think your plugin doesnt work. Its really awesome btw
I will be more than glad to assist you regardless of your current supported status. If only I understood what is the problem you have and, more importantly, what you are trying to achieve.
You have been successfully working with WavePlayer for months now. So, I would need to know what you are altering in your WordPress installation.
The warnings you are receiving are quite irrelevant, since they refer to the albums of your tracks. If you don’t have any album, the corresponding section of the code gets simply disregarded.
Also, I don’t seem to understand the “image jumps from large to small” part of your issue. Thus, an URL pointing to an example page exposing the issue are describing would be very helpful for me to understand.
Thanks luigi. Well when i would drop the track into a text block for virtual composer the size would be extra small then jump my itself to large and back and forth, like some kind of glitch. I am currently restoring a backup and I will let you know if the problem goes away or not. Thanks for your help. Also, after using the new woocomerce feature its awesome! A couple thoings though, 1. for someone like me with micro purchases where I will only be charging like 1.20 per song when you use paypal they charge for each transaction. This would make me have to raise the price so that at least a little bit of change can go toward the site. I am giving about 80% to the artists. However if it were to work the same for Easy Digital download that would be great too because it would be easier for people to have both a music secion and use woocomerce for clothing. Not to mention easy digital you can take credit card directly so there is no fee. Thats a big plus. 2. The sharing buttons, would be great if we could enter the url for each, that way the full release can be shared and looks nice on facebook. Come to mention it a sharing for wordpress would be awesome as well to be able to share to our own site. 3. The download button or counter, is there a way to make it only show the downloads? Like an on off switch or code change? If someone wants to show how many have been bought then that would be great without alowing them to download without buying. Also, if someone wants to use it for more than just wocommerce and alow direct download. Sorry I always write a lot. Hope some of these features are of use. But the preview on the cart page for all of them, that one is the kicker!
Hi, recently purchased your waveplayer plugin. Installed ok, but 2 issues.
1. Get HTTP error when uploading mp3 files. Had to manually upload using cpanel for hosted solution.
2. Inserted player into page using url instead, no sound when play is clicked.
In order to help you troubleshoot your issues, I would need, at the very least, to have the URL of your website. Then it would also be helpful to have the credentials of an administrative user of your WordPress installation.
Please send a support request to firstname.lastname@example.org providing the required information.
Have sent via email thanks
Please find my email with an extensive analysis of the issue you are experiencing and what I recommend you as the best approach to help you solve it and enjoy a fully functional installation of WavePlayer on your website.
There appears to be a problem with the plugin, the stats counter won’t increment for each play:
The play counter is conceived for music tracks and get incremented when a certain duration. Currently it is set to 2/3 of the total length of each track.
Since I realize this is not the best approach for very long podcasts or DJ sets, I am planning to change this behavior in the next update.
In the meantime, I am available to adjust your current setup to trigger the counter as soon as the play button gets clicked. Please write to email@example.com, providing with the credentials of an administrative user of your WordPress installation.
Is it mandatory that audio is uploaded via the Create WavePlayer area in order to show the waveforms/peak files?
If I uploaded a single WAV file with Gravity Forms would it automatically show the waveforms and peakfiles if that piece of audio was automatically embedded into a post?
WavePlayer can analyze and generate peak files for any uploaded audio file and even for audio files from remote locations. This is regardless of the way you decide to upload your files to the Media Library.
Please consider that for the best and widest compatibility, MP3 format is recommended.
Using only WAV how would that restrict me? I need to showcase music samples (simple drum, piano sounds etc) in WAV format typically 1-6 seconds long. MP3 is not great for production samples.
WavePlayer can work with any audio format WordPress is capable of uploading.
The only limitation would be that Internet Explorer cannot read WAV files using an audio element.
You can also consider using MP3 files for previewing and WAV files for downloading. While I totally understand that an uncompressed WAV format is preferable for final production quality, CBR MP3s encoded at 320 kbps or VBR MP3s encoded at the highest quality can be more than enough for previewing purposes without affecting the listening quality.
I hope this clarifies.
Thank you for the prompt answers.
Hey! Ok so everything seems to be working fine now. So happy the woocomerce integration has happened. That is super awesome. The only issue I have now is the layout. In the setting you have an option to “remove image” of the product. Is this supposed to remove the image above the player? If so it does not work. Right now I want to have a row of six tracks to make for easier track searching. I have that but when smushed the player and cover section takes up half of the area. If there was a way to remove the entire image from above that would be great. That would leave the tracks by themselves. But, it would also be great to have the option to have only the wavform on the woocomerce products. This would leave my theme’s structure in place and also give a nicer view of the song.
Also btw, no more need for the integration i was asking about before with the compatibility and profiles. But, it would be great if I could share the audio release within the website and it show up as a playable player without having to go into the actual release.
Thanks for showing your interest in WavePlayer. Considering the request I have been receiving lately for a standalone version, I am planning to release it shortly.
