How to play audio attachments directly in vBulletin?

Discussion in 'vBulletin' started by Devtard, Apr 25, 2013.

    Is there an addon that allows playing audio attachments (not only .mp3 but also .ogg, .wav etc.) directly from a post, without forcing users to download a file?

    I am using vB 4.2.

    That's a pity, I was looking forward to discovering something new that I haven't noticed after a few years of experience with vBulletin. Could you remember? Pretty please.

    You can upload them to a media site like youtube to play them inside a post.
    If you wanted to host it yourself, you'd need to make a new BBCode, which wouldn't be all that hard.

    My forum members don't want to bother with that so I need to find a way how to play audio files directly from my website.

    I found this: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=272051
    I could use JWPlayer but sadly it doesn't support .wav and other audio formats. If someone knows something more suitable please let me know.

    This is not what I want. I need a flash player that is able to play all mentioned audio file types, so far I I've managed to find only mp3 players. Unfortunately the HTML5 <audio> tag is not very useful because browsers don't support all audio formats: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_audio.asp
