  1. Hi there

    I have managed to get player onto wordpress page. Have added all details re amazon activation and also folder. I have made folder and file public

    As yet though it does not come up in player?

    Also is it possible to change heght dimension to make it smaller?

    It looks great though!


  2. is there a way to have the player justify to the center or left? it always takes the top page position. I’d like to place it in the page where i would like it to be? thanks!

  3. Great little player, I know you are going to do a widget…. do you have and ETA on that being done?

    Can we use it in a “text” widget now using the shortcode?

  4. Hi – Great post and very interesting plugin. I have not seen anthing like this before.

    Whilst this does not relate directly to your plugin are the costs competitively priced on amazon s3?


  5. Hi, Ive hit a problem ( maybe you can help ). I set up a bucket, added a folder to which i added an MP3 file which has permission to be public.

    I set up the plugin with the security details, same bucket name however the folder associated with that bucket is not displayed in the folder list option. Nothing is.

    I saved – refreshed browser still no folder, tried with no folder and the still no mp3 is displayed.

    really keen to showcase this plugin – any advice is appreciated.

    Kind regards


  6. This would be awesome for buddypress with members having their own accounts and the player being on their profile page.. Is that possible?

    • Yes definitely possible working on something similar to that at the moment should release in two weeks.

  7. For all those having issues with it not working.

    Their seems to be an issue with the encoding on some amazon keys.

    If you can edit the source code open playlist.php in the plugin folder and then just enter your secret key and amazon key manually.

    edit these lines.
    //AWS access info
    if (!defined(‘awsAccessKey’)) define(‘awsAccessKey’, $store[0]);
    if (!defined(‘awsSecretKey’)) define(‘awsSecretKey’, $store[1]);

    //AWS access info
    if (!defined(‘awsAccessKey’)) define(‘awsAccessKey’, ‘enter your amazon key here’);
    if (!defined(‘awsSecretKey’)) define(‘awsSecretKey’, ‘enter your secret key here’);

    Hope this helps you.

    • Hi Sam

      I followed the instruction and edited the playlist.php file to show the access key and secret key but still no folder is visible in the backend.

      Anything else that I can try?
