I am finishing up a WordPress site for a radio station and the audio payer plugin that I’m using is not iOS compatible. I just got a new iPad and I was testing the site on the iPad when I notice I can’t play their podcasts and audio interviews.
I think you can just use HTML5 audio (iOS 6+).
Is that a plugin for WordPress?
No, it’s just the HTML5 `` tag. [Here’s some documentation.](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML/Element/audio)
I have found a plugin for wordpress that works on ios, andriod and all the major internet broswers.
I did this site some time back, I think the audio player (jPlayer) I used also works on iOS devices:
Here is jPlayer’s website: http://www.jplayer.org/
Thanks, I’ll check these out.
Ross, the HTML5 < audio > tag is not compatible with all browsers. I’m looking for maximum compatibility.
If you put whatever solution you’re currently using inside the HTML audio tag, it will be used by browsers that don’t support it.
