Audio player options WordPress

Hi Guys

I have installed a basic audio player plugin here

http://perfect-health-renewal.com/

But my client would prefer something like this

http://p1.pagewiz.net/USAtest/

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?

Thanks
Steve

Remy answers:

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

I've used jPlayer (http://jplayer.org/latest/demos/) on a site for a client. I hand coded mine in but there is a WordPress plugin for it here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/mp3-jplayer/.


Steve Watson comments:

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

http://jplayer.org/latest/demo-07/

Hi, for http://jplayer.org/latest/demo-07/ 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: http://sjward.org/jplayer-for-wordpress/. 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="http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-miniaudioplayer/"]]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="http://www.jplayer.org/latest/developer-guide/"]]here[[/LINK]].
