    [Audio and Video Players with Addison Berry]

    It's really nice that we have our audio files on our album
  • 0:11
    so that people can listen to music.
  • 0:13
    The only problem with it right now, though,
  • 0:15
    is these are just links to files.
  • 0:17
    People have to download them and then come up with a way to play them themselves,
  • 0:22
    be that on their laptop or an MP3 player.
  • 0:24
    It's really not the best way to get people listening to the music.
  • 0:28
    Media Module doesn't actually come with any players for audio or video, though.
  • 0:34
    Now, that doesn't mean we can't use any.

Audio and Video Players


It's great that we can list our audio files in our albums, but a link to download isn't a great way for people to experience the music. Media module is helpful to get the music up there, but it doesn't provide any players for audio and video files. We need to add our own player to make the audio experience nice and slick. In this lesson, we'll review the following players:

  • MediaElement
  • MediaFront
  • jPlayer
