Audio player options WordPress

Hi Guys

I have installed a basic audio player plugin here

But my client would prefer something like this

He would like the player to be "open" and for the user to be able to slide forwards and backwards though the audio

Preferably a free plug in that is relatively easy to use Or can we edit the basic audio player i have already installed?

Can anyone help?

You can use the one in WP Core with the short code audio, no need for a plugin : [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

Yes but its too big and too black... can I edit the css to make it look better?

I've used jPlayer ( on a site for a client. I hand coded mine in but there is a WordPress plugin for it here:

Steve Watson comments:

This is the one that would be perfect but I dont understand how it is installed

Linda comments:

Hi, for use the WordPress version of it, it doesn't allow a lot of customization but it much easier to setup. You can find the plugin page here: Just download his plugin, install and use any of his shortcodes setup the player. You can do a little customizing in the plugins settings page otherwise add your own css to make it fit your page.

Try [[LINK href=""]]mb.miniAudioPlayer[[/LINK]]. It's pretty streamlined... That said, jPlayer can be skinned, and specifics on their CSS and JS implementations can be found [[LINK href=""]]here[[/LINK]].
