Most of you know that I am not a programmer; in fact, I am a highly dangerous amateur 🙂
With that in mind, I would like to choose an audio player that will work just as well as the current one for existing Windows/Mac/Linux users, but one that also works for those who have mobile phones, and those who do not have Javascript enabled. Any suggestions?

Interested in this too, I love the look/functionality of the 1pixel, but iPhone support would be nice...

The one I'm looking at is MediaElements.js, but I can't seem to get the settings correct. I'll look into it more when I get home this afternoon. I have a sound board to adjust this morning after receiving a nice tutorial from an experienced sound guy.

I'm using the media elements plugin successfully. In the Options for sermon browser, you'll want to fill in the MP3 SHortcode as follows:

In the settings for the media elements plugin, under the audio settings enter this:

audio/mp3

That seems to work just fine.

I'm not getting that to work. I have the two noted changes exactly and it just removes the player from my entries. The old Audio Player plugin is disabled first of course.

The Mediaelements players worked in Firefox and in IE... but in Chrome, on the search page, only the first instance of the player appeared and was functional. The others were grayed out. Not a big deal since I just switched back.

Cool...I was playing with this one as well and couldn't figure out the magical shortcode to use.

Unfortunately, the played doesn't work for me in Safari. Strangely enough, the sidebar player does work fine.

Thanks much for the ShortCode . . . but, I now can't find a way to keep the "Download" setup so people can download the MP3 files. Thoughts?

I read on another post that the Download function was broken when using a different player and it would be fixed in a future update.

Yes, the way I understand the release notes for the beta of next release of sermon browser, you will be able have the download link with the mediaelements.js player.

I'd love to know how to setup a download link.  we can not get that working at all.  Well, let me step back,  the default audio player that SB recommends works great and generates a download link but the download link downloads a blank mp3.  No error just a blank mp3.

Is there a way to hardcode a link to the mp3 on the sermon template?

You can add the download link using mediaelements.js player by using this code in the MP3 shortcode:

 [mejsaudio src="%SERMONURL%"]<p><a href="%SERMONURL%">Download MP3 Audio File</a></p>

 

I really like the look and functionality of the mediaelements plugin I am just having issues with it working properly in Firefox and IE. Works great on mobile devices, Chrome & Safari.

I switched to the standard player. I want true download links... at least people with iPad, touch and phone can download the file. Also I like to be able to add a pre play intro file first, the HTML5 mediaelements does not allow that.

 

I can reinstall the player if you want to see it, let me know.   http://www.fbbc.com/sermons

I am using mediaelements.js player on my Church site which you can find here http://www.eastgatepressermons.....-and-more/

 

Here is the short code that I used [mejsaudio src="%SERMONURL%"] and it has the standard download link under the player in each of the Sermon pages because I have Audio Player Activated as well. Also I am using MediaElement.js Skin as defualt skin.

 

I have no problem run both plugins at the same time.  I test Firefox, Safari, SeaMonkey, and Camino

 

Hope this helps anyone that wants to use this wonderful plugin

I'm hoping someone can help me. In reference to the post I made here I decided to set the mediaelement.js plugin live, it's working everywhere except Firefox (I can't test IE as I have only Macs).

 

For some reason Firefox (on 2 Macs) insists on telling me there is a plugin missing and display like this:

Any help would be appreciated.

Phil, the media player on your website is working for me on both Firefox and IE.  (I'm using Windows 7.)

Thanks Ben, I appreciate that. I must have done something to my Macs and Firefox, although not sure what. I'll keep it in play for now I think.
