Yahoo Audio Player - Check this out!!
« on: December 02, 2008, 02:12:56 am »
I've just stumbled on the new Yahoo Audio Player (beta). It seems like a first-class prize to me.

One line of code in the page where one OR MORE audio files reside -- that's it!

The player finds the audio file, puts a button in front of it and a tab lower left of the page. Click the button and file starts playing.

If the page holds more than one audio file, the player puts a button in front of each. Choose! Or click on the grey tab (lower left) and select "Play List" to choose.

Simple and amazing!

Below copied from web site:

A revolutionary and easy to use music player that plays audio on your website.
