Embedding an Audio Player into Your Site Without WordPress
Several people have asked me about how to embed an audio player into their websites. I use the PodPress plugin for WordPress, but this plugin itself is based on an audio player by 1 Pixel Out.
If you have a regular HTML website and want to start embedding an audio player (for example, to play recordings of your chapter presentations or other audio broadcasts), check out this player from 1 Pixel Out.
Well-written instructions for non-WordPress users are here. They look fairly simple. You do need to upload some files to a directory. If you do start using this player on your site, send me the link so I can check out your audio.
