Player 56s

Player 56s is simple in use web audio-player with a playlist, responsive design and ability to enable minimalistic view mode.

Player 56s was made for an international art community and a record label and published as open-souce with the permission of the company.

Player 56s based on Jouele web player by Ilya Birman and Evgeniy Lazarev. I have been inspired by simplicity and style of their project. Thank you guys.

Dependencies and testing

Application requires jQuery and jPlayer.

Has been tested with jQuery from v1.9.0 to v3.1.1 and jPlayer from v2.5.0 to 2.9.2.

Platforms and browsers support the same as jPlayer.. in theory. :)



<!-- Add dependencies: jQuery and jPlayer -->
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

<!-- Add player 56s code and style files -->
<link href="player56s.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<script src="player56s.min.js"></script>

Do not forget to put player56s_sprite.png file to the same directory where 'player56s.css' placed.

via Bower

bower install player-56s

via npm

npm install player-56s


Single track

Just add anchor tag with class 'player56s' to page html, put audio file url to the 'href' attribute and add track title in tag content. It will become a default player without playlist.

<a href="audios/birman_news.mp3" class="player56s">Ilya Birman - News</a>

You can place author name to the track title with dividing it from track name by minus (-) or medium dash (&mdash;).

Several tracks

You can add several tracks to one player. Add to two or more anchors atrribute 'rel' with the same value. It will become one player with ability to switch tracks.

<a href="audios/yh_vests.mp3" class="player56s" rel="group1">Yellowhead - Vests Must Be Used</a>
<a href="audios/yh_cabin.mp3" class="player56s" rel="group1">Yellowhead - Cabin Pressure</a>

Minimalistic view

Swich player to the minimalistic view with adding 'minimal' css class to the anchor and attribute 'data-length' with length of track in format 'M:SS'.
