Plugin idea: Yahoo Media Player
« on: April 25, 2010, 09:11:07 am »

Today I came across a page that embedded mp3 playback nicely, using a gadget named "Yahoo! Media Player". It displayed a link labelled "learn more about this player", and the set of instructions displayed on Yahoo's pages is really simple:
A: Link to Audio - Add audio links to your page
Code: [Select]
<a href="">First link</a>
<a href="">Second link</a>
<a href="">Third link</a>
B: Get Code - Copy and paste this code into your page
Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>C: Play - Press play next to a song

A revolutionary and easy to use music player that plays audio on your website.

    * Adds audio to your site with one line of HTML
    * Uses simple, easy-to-hack HTML instead of complicated proprietary markup, ushering in the REAL Media Web
    * Magical floating design never gets lost, is available when you need it, gets out of your way when you don't need it
    * Automatically finds all audio links on your page, turning your page into a playlist
    * Plays all your blog entries with a single button click
    * Allows you to put the play buttons where they belong: IN CONTEXT
    * Keeps the user in the page rather than sending them away to a media player
    * Picks up your images and adds them as cover art
    * Requires no download, install or maintenance
Imo this gadget could easily be converted into a Coppermine plugin, so if someone feels like looking into it, I'm all ears.

It seems to have promise and more features like being able read playlists from xml files, However with a quickly hacked plugin it seems to want to change the player/file with each page change. It did work well with various slideshow pages.
