Custom audio players


#1

Are there any alternatives to the audio widget that would provide a continuous player, fixed to the top or bottom of a page? If there’s no easy solution, are there any good examples of a pop-up player?


#2

Any audio player capable of playing a mp3 stream should work. There are lots of HTML5 players etc. jPlayer for instance should work.


#3

You think variations of this webcompents based player might work?

If so, I think building out a customizable Libretime/Airtime player could be included in the project scope for most of the OpenProducer projects.


#4

I don’t know whether they would work or not. It depends upon whether they support mp3 streams. I think that mp3 streams are actually supported natively by many modern browsers.


#5

If they could work, we should scope out a solution, set a goal on our OpenCollective, and sprint! https://twitter.com/gusaus/status/1017156624023052288
