audio player customisation

  1. Hi there - I'm using the web-based wordpress.com and I've recently embedded the flash based audio player onto my site. The audio plays fine, animation and everything is how I expected it - however it doesn't look how I expected or how I've seen it on other websites... I was expecting there to be no background to the player until the play button is pressed - but instead I have a white strip (the length of the player when opened) visible before the audio is played... check out my Audi/Video page http://benjamincarey.wordpress.com/audiovideo to see what I mean... I've been looking at all the attributes of the audio player that are customisable and I can't find a way to get rid of this - I guess I want it to be transparent?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks...

    The blog I need help with is benjamincarey.wordpress.com.

    You can't make it transparent, but you can change the colors; see here:

    And/or you can remove the extra strip by writing:

    [audio MP3 URL HERE|width=80]

  4. Thanks for the replies panaghiotisadam - I've tried changing the width and other parameters etc but I'll give some of your options from your site a go. If not that's a great list of 3rd party players too that I'll check out - cheers!
