11. Silverlight Audio Player

Handcut Designs - Free Music Players For Your Website

Silverlight Audio Player is a simple audio player that can be used for playing back one or more audio files. It currently supports two styles of player. The first plays a single file. The second allows you to play multiple files.

How to install:

You need the AudioPlayer.xap file, and optionally an XML playlist file. Once you have those, you can load the Silverlight application in the same way you would any other. Remember to set up the size appropriately, and pass in the MP3 file Url or Playlist Url in the Initparams (see below). By convention, Visual Studio likes XAP files to be stored in a ClientBin folder. You do not need to do this, and if you don’t, you will need to adjust the relative paths from the examples shown below (i.e. no need for ..\ on your Urls).

Using the Single Player:

To use the single player, simply pass init params following the to your silverlight object. The single player should be sized 295 pixels wide and 30 pixels high.

InitParams: Url=http://www.mydomain.com/audio/song-1.mp3,Artist=Artist Name,Title=Song title

Using the Multiple Player:

The multi-player is still a work in progress. To launch the player with multiple files, you need to point it at a playlist. A playlist is
an XML file containing the Url, Artist and Title for each track you wish to play.

  1. < ?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
  2. <playlist>
  3. <audiofile url=”http://www.wordandspirit.co.uk/blog/audio/01-opposition-and-joy.mp3″ title=”Opposition and Joy” artist=”Mark Heath”>
  4. <audiofile url=”http://www.wordandspirit.co.uk/blog/audio/you-have-always-given.mp3″ title=”You have always given” artist=”Mark Heath”>
  5. <audiofile url=”http://www.wordandspirit.co.uk/blog/audio/dont-look-at-me.mp3″ title=”Don’t Look at Me” artist=”Mark Heath”>
