How to play a shoutcast streaming with WonderPlugin Audio Player

Product:

WonderPlugin Audio Player

Question:

I wonder how could I play a shoutcast audio streaming with WonderPlugin Audio Player? I tried to enter the address of the .pls file to the plugin, but it's not playing.

Answer:

The .pls file is actually a text file that contains a link or links to the audio streaming. You need to open the .pls file with a text editor, find the streaming URL and directly enter the streaming URL to the plugin.

If the streaming URL has a format like:

http://IP:port

You need to add a suffix ;&type=mp3 and enter the following URL to the plugin:

http://IP:port/;&type=mp3

Then in the plugin, step 1, Add Audio dialog, you can enter the streaming URL to the Mp3 URL box and check the option "This is a live streaming".

WonderPlugin Audio Player JavaScript API

This post will show you how to use JavaScript to control the WonderPlugin Audio Player.

The following JavaScript will play the audio:

jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").playAudio();

In the above code, 1 is the id of the audio player. wonderpluginaudio-1 is the id of the created player DIV.

If the id of your player is 2, you need to change the id value accordingly:

jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-2").data("object").playAudio();

To pause the player:

jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").pauseAudio();

The function audioRun(index, autoplay) will jump to the specified audio. The index starts from 0. For example, the following function will jump to the second audio and play it:

jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").audioRun(1, true);

To goto the previous audio:

jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").audioRun(-2, true);

To goto the next audio:

jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").audioRun(-1, true);

The following four text links will play, pause, jump to the second audio and jump to the fifth audio in the following player:

<a href='javascript:jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").playAudio();'>Click to Play</a>

<a href='javascript:jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").pauseAudio();'>Click to Pause</a>

<a href='javascript:jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").audioRun(1, true);'>Jump to Second Audio and Play</a>

<a href='javascript:jQuery("#wonderpluginaudio-1").data("object").audioRun(4, true);'>Jump to Fifth Audio and Play</a>

The demo is as following:

Click to Play
Click to Pause
Jump to Second Audio and Play
Jump to Fifth Audio and Play
