ZoomSounds – WordPress Wave Audio Player with Playlist

Written by admin

Want a nifty, cutting-edge, retina-ready, responsive html5 audio
player for your site ? ZoomSounds is the perfect candidate. With
nineskins to fit every brand, multiple layout for
the wave skin, only one format required to function, ZoomSounds is
the perfect choice for an audio player.

Please rate 5/5 – Updates with features
and upgrades come consistently

A simple shortcode is required for the plugin to work
– [zoomsounds] – and you do
not even have to remember that because there are shortcode
generators for both audio file and audio playlists

Supports self hosted mp3 / m4a / wav / aac, and mp3 shoutcast
radio stations + live streams. You can also embed SoundCloud songs
just by inputing their link in the shortcode generator
– that easy IF YOU HAVE A API KEY. You just need
a soundcloud account and api key ( registrations are now closed )

UPDATE 4.00[ 11/02/2017 ]

Major update:A new admin has been introduced. This
is designed from the ground up, based on feedback we received over
the years for the old one. It is ajax enabled and changes are
updated nearly instantly. Because the legacy admin and the new one
are not compatible ( are based on different principles ), the
change will not be done automatically. But, exported sliders from
the old one are converted on import to the new one.

With that in mind, new install will upgrade the new admin
directly. And current install will keep legacy admin, until
administrators are ready to upgrade. If you want to import your
legacy galleries, just export them from the legacy admin, switch to
the new one ( from ZoomSounds > Settings > Playlists Mode ) ,
and import them into the new one.

I am looking for an audio player for my WP site that will play
songs continuos / without interruption or starting the song over
when a visitor browses different pages,

For this, you need a
ajax enable theme. Or a plugin that enables continuos navigating
between pages without browser refresh ( like – )

this allow continuos playback?

Only if your theme supports that ( it does not depend on
zoomsounds )

If you have a theme like this ->

( no page refresh between page change )

For music to continue playing while changing page

We also made a free plugin for any theme

for this purpose

is this plug in programmed to stop playing when another player
starts playing on the same page

Sure, when another ZoomSounds
player is clicked, the current playing one will be stopped.

Can you use this audio player with short codes? Does it have a
shortcode function?

A simple shortcode is required for the plugin to work
– [zoomsounds] – and you do
not even have to remember that because there are shortcode
generators for both audio file and audio gallery

How to enable zoomsounds player in woocommerce shop

The idea is to go to ZoomSounds > Settings >
WooCommerceand enable Configuration for Loop
Products to a player configuration you need.

Then ZoomSounds it will appear in any shop page / product

PS: The Products need the mp3 track uploaded in the ZoomSounds
tab in any WooCommerce product

I’d like to have playlists from soundcloud, say
like an EP but have multiple EPs on one page; is this possible?
Will two instances play at the same time? Or could one pause?

At the moment, it’s not integrated with the
soundcloud api to retrieve a user playlist. You can create your own
playlist and add whihc soundcloud sounds you want.

Default is that only one zoomsounds player on the page plays.
The other ones pause.

can it play MP3’s self-hosted?

Sure, it’s the main source. It can also play
soundcloud, shoutcast radio…

You can insert that in the artist or song name spaces

My mp3s
show infinity for length

You might need to reencode your mp3. Test the mp3 directly on th
browser ( just input the link to the mp3 in the browser )
– if the browser does not have support for it
then ZoomSounds cannot play it of course

I’m looking for an mp3 player plugin that allows
download of the mp3s. The mp3 artwork (image) provides the title
and then the play and download buttons overlay it. On the archive
page we have the same but nicely arranged in grid layout.

Generally, yes


What do you mean by archive ?

If this is a custom page you set – then
zoomsounds has shortcodes for this

If this is theme archive page, then your theme must have support
for this grid

sounds do not work

You will need soundcloud api key –
registrations are now closed for the moment.
