Hi. I am interested in buying this plugin, as it will fit in nicely with a project that I’m doing. Just a couple of questions-

1. Is this compatible with the latest wordpress (4.9.4) and woocommerce (3.3.3)? 2. Is there an option to play only a small sample preview and not the whole audio track?

I created an audio product for my customers. Is it possible to stream mp3s from secure amazon s3 links? (not public).

the plugin does not work correctly, could you help me

Hi Luigi, is there a way to preload all waveforms?

Not with the current version. The new upcoming version 3.0, though, will have a specific function in the Maintenance tab of the settings to allow you to build (and/or rebuild) the waveforms for all the audio files currently stored in the Media Library.

Best, Luigi.

Is there an ability to auto cue tracks? Meaning If I have a playlist on a page I want to have the first track showing its waveform without playing back!

Actually, this is the exact way WavePlayer currently works. As you can see from the official website, at www.waveplayer.info, you will see that, once the page is loaded, each instance of WavePlayer will show the waveform of the first track in the playlist.

Ok then it seems to be a problem related to DIVI Wordpress theme?

Hi Luigi,

I want to buy Waveplayer, it looks great. I have about 500 mp3 files in old blog posts, is there a way to convert them to Waveplayer, without going through all posts manually?

Thanks, Dirk

Hi, dirkla,

Thank you for your interest in WavePlayer. The plugin has the capability of overriding the default WordPress audio player. This means that every [audio] or [playlist] shortcode that is already present in your website will be automatically replaced in the frontend with an instance of WavePlayer, without any need to go back to every single post.

Please consider, though, that WavePlayer needs to generate a small peak file for each audio track in your Media library. This operation only takes 1or 2 seconds per minute of audio file and only occurs the very first time you load an audio file that has never been played back by WavePlayer. Once WavePlayer has created a peak file for a given audio file, any subsequent loading will be nearly instantaneous.

I hope this clarifies.

Best, Luigi.

Hi Luigi, I bought the plugin. Looks great, and loads fast as well!

There’s only 1 problem though: it doesn’t seem to load audio that is not uploaded to Wordpress. Some of my audio files are uploaded via ftp to my server, but not uploaded to the Wordpress media library. Is there a workaround to play those files?

One other thing: what is the css to change the fontawesome play button?

Thanks, Dirk

Hi, Dirk,

External links work with the only limitation that you cannot have playlists of external files. So, as long as you have one external file per instance, it should work fine.

The problem you may be facing is that the peak file creation process is a little different for external files compared to the ones uploaded to the Media library. Try to load a page where such a file is present and wait for the creation of the waveform. Wait a couple of minutes, then reload the page to see if the waveform was created.

If you still have problems, please send an email to support@waveplayer.info, specifying the URL of your website and a direct link to the problematic page and I will try to troubleshoot the issue for you.

Best regards, Luigi.

Hi Luigi, Can I add an external download link to each song? I’m evaluating to buy it.

I just bought it and followed the steps. But cant take metadata as a link, there’s something wrong to take a metatag as a link. Can you help me?

Sure! Please send an email to support@waveplayer.info, including the URL of your website and, possibly, a direct link to a page where you have an issue.

Looking forward to assisting you.

Best, Luigi.

On a second thought, I would try using the following placeholder:

%external_download_url{"raw":1}%

The placeholders are normally encapsulated into a <span /> tag. Adding the “raw” attribute lets you use the metadata in any position of your HTML code (e.g. as the href attribute of an anchor tag).

Let me know if this helps.

Best, Luigi.

I’m interested in this plugin and have read about the place holders, do you know of any examples where someone has modified a place holder to add a button /icon that directs to a unique web page for each song? If not can you recommend something?
