    I use the Dew player on my personal blog. I had some trouble at first getting my mp3 music into the player, after I figured it out, it works great! And….It’s a sleek design, easy on the eyes. On top of it all, its FREE!

    Never heard of anyone except Yahoo Media Player.. Nice exhaustive list! :)

  4. I had a client who recently wanted to have a song play when his homepage was loaded, despite my advice to the contrary. I wanted something really unobtrusive that could still be paused if the user didn’t want to hear it. In the end, I actually stumbled across AudioPlay, which was very helpful, despite there not being much information about it online. Glad to see that it made your list.

    I would like to use a very simple mp3 player which does not require a short code to be added. It should just recognize a link to an mp3 file and simply add a small play button without any features. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    What is the use of these music player in your website?

  36. Frank says:

    I had Yahoo Media Player working fine on myt website. Today I noted Yahoo Media Player apparently no longer exists. What’s up with that? Apparently Yahoo has pulled the plug on Media Player and not told anyone or even the slightest head’s up??

    The mediaplyaer.yahoo.com site now redirects to Yahoo’s home page, and all references, instructions etc on Yahoo’s site and gone.

    Pretty lame way to drop a product.

    I am using Jplayer on one of my site, and it works really smoothly and the most amazing part is that even works on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, and even Apple iOS, since it uses HTML5. Fast, lightweight and free. :)
