HTML5 MP3 player with Flash Fallback. Play music while browsing your site – 100% AJAX enabled! Please be gentle with reviews – this software is in public beta & will get more user friendly through your feedback.
Also allows you to organise Artists/Albums/Songs from your wordpress dashboard and display them in your pages/posts via shortcodes and a sidebar widget player.

This plugin is part of a larger project to provide musicians with free online tools to present and promote their work. We’re using http://browserstack.com to check our forthcoming front-end templates on every imaginable device. Many thanks for their great product and their generous support of our open source development program.
When I browse to another page, my music stops when it should keep playing
You haven’t enabled your AJAX in the setting panel (it’s disabled by default because it’s tricky!)

How does it work? It’s like magic!
The player is based on the excellent open source http://www.schillmania.com/projects/soundmanager2/ library. Basically it just plays music through that but reloads the content and menu areas of the page via ajax when a link is clicked. Then it uses html5 push.state to ohange the url.
My page reloads to something really weird, what’s happening?!
- First release – stable but more features to come…
