    Hi,

    I’m building an online radio station and I bought a license for your mp3 player but I am not sure that it does a couple of specific things that I need.

    The first being use an icecast stream as a source but importantly pull in the song and artist title and display it.


    Second, I need a full width sticky player that continues to play seamlessly as users navigate around the site. 


    It seems at the moment it “remembers” where playback is on a new page load, I’m not sure how this works with an icecast stream though and it means a break in the audio.

    I appreciate your time in answering these questions for me.

    Kind regards,

    Matt

    Hello Matt,

    thanks for reaching out!


    You can use Icecast stream with our plugin but we are not currently pulling the song/artists title from the Icecast API yet. This is on roadmap since it has been requested by a couple of our users but I don't have any ETA date yet. This could take a couple of weeks/months.

    For the sticky player and the continuous playing, learn more about Continuous Audio Playback and tool to use here: https://sonaar.io/tips-and-tricks/continuous-audio-player-on-wordpress/

    Hi Max, 

    Thanks for the reply. 

    It is good to know the icecast feature is in your roadmap.

    That link is helpful and I think I have come to the conclusion in order to do what I want in terms of continuous playback I need a theme with an AJAX menu, is that correct? Will it just work out the box?


    Kind regards,

    Matt

    It depends which theme you use. But our player is made to be continuous when using an true ajax theme.

    Thanks,

    Would it work with this theme? https://themerain.com/demo/scena/

    Hi Max,

    So I took the plunge and bought the theme. 


    It worked at first but for some reason it doesn't now.


    On clicking play nothing loads. It is also not loading the track title or album.


    It seems I am getting this error;

    .catch((error) => {
                    console.log("error");
                    // Autoplay was prevented.
                    // Show a "Play" button so that user can start playback.


    What do you think?


    Kind regards,

    Matt

    Hi, 

    Where can I test/reproduce the issue? (what is the url where you set the player) 


    Thanks,

    Yes please provide me access to your WP-admin.

    Looks like you have no source set for your sticky player.

    Thanks,

    Please check now. You had to select the playlist in the general settings; https://d.pr/i/4Cubu2

    Brilliant that’s now working as intended. 

    Thanks for the help!


    I thought that was where you listed which pages you wanted the player to display so that’s was some confusion on my part.


    Kind regards,

    Matt
