Visual Guide

How to install WavePlayer
How to create a new instance of WavePlayer

List Of The Main Features

  • ideal for your Music and Podcast websites
  • responsive interface, with a modern looking style
  • HTML5 support
  • full integration with the Media Manager and visual creation of playlists
  • full integration with WooCommerce and automated creation of music products
  • peak files for an instantaneous access to the audio waveforms

What is new in WavePlayer 2

WavePlayer has been accurately rewritten to make it faster, more efficient and to incorporate all the features requested by customers during the past year.

PLAYLIST PANEL

WavePlayer finally features a visible list of all the tracks included in a single instance. The site administrator can easily configure the info and buttons shown on each row of the list.

PEAK FILES

Audio tracks get analyzed as soon as they are uploaded to the Media Library. This way you do not have to wait for the waveform to be rendered when using a track for the first time, which is particularly useful for extremely large files.

FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENT

All player instances in a single page are loaded simultaneously, reducing enormously the loading time and making the interaction with the server much faster and more efficient. For example, if you have 10 instances on a page, the older versions of WavePlayer sent 10 calls to the server, getting the playlist of each instance at a time.

CUSTOMIZATION

WavePlayer is very appreciated by its customers for its incredible customization capabilities. With the new version 2, the possibilities go even further. With the introduction of the new playlist panel, you can now customize the information shown on both the Info Bar and the playlist rows. The system is easy and flexible, allowing you to customize what to show.

WOOCOMMERCE INTEGRATION

WavePlayer is now fully compatible with WooCommerce. The integration aims to automate as much as possible the creation process for music products, such as music singles or music albums.

SETTINGS

When updating the plugin to a new version, you can now keep your current configuration. You will never lose your favorite settings when updating to a newer version.
