Beatport player problem

  1. hi,
    I'm new to word press, finding it very useful.
    I have some code for a beatport.com player which lists all tracks by us. how every it seems that it isnt working correctly.
    only the top part of the player is displayed and the actual track list isnt showing.
    here is the code
    <style>//---------------- BEGIN BEATPORT PLAYER -----------------------</style><div class="beatport" align="center" style="border:0px; background:transparent; padding:10px;"><map name="bottomlinks"><area href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmJlYXRwb3J0LmNvbQ==" alt="Go to Beatport.com" coords="0,0,225,50" /><area href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmJlYXRwb3J0LmNvbS92aXJhbFBsYXllci9yZWxheT9wbGF5ZXJJZD0xNTM5NjY=" alt="Get These Tracks" coords="237,12,332,38" /><area href="http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmJlYXRwb3J0cGxheWVyLmNvbS8/cGxheWVySWQ9MTUzOTY2" alt="Add This Player" coords="332,12,422,38" /></map><img src="http://marketing.beatport.com/operations/images/playerHeader.gif" style="display:block; border:none;" usemap="bottomlinks" /><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" height="264" width="442" style="display:block;" align="center">

    feel free to look here http://autophase.wordpress.com/discography/

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

  2. Is this the blog you are talking about http://autophase.wordpress.com/ ? If so, please provide a link to your blog when asking questions in the forums. Most times we have to take a look to be able to help, and also to make sure you are in the correct forum.

    That code is flash.

    Javascript, flash, iframes and forms are not allowed here due to security concerns. There are also limits on the plain HTML that can be used here. WordPress.COM is a multi-user platform which means we all share the same underlying theme and wordpress files and any bad code, or security issue introduced by a user could bring down a bunch of blogs.

    WordPress has an audio player that you can use with audio files that you host elsewhere, or if you have the paid space upgrade, you can upload them to your blog storage space.

  3. thats correct my blog is http://autophase.wordpress.com/
    I have put the code on the Discography section of our blog.
    So basically I wont be able to use the beatport player?

  4. That is correct. You will not be able to use that code at wordpress.COM.

  5. ok, well from the audio players that are allowed on word press, will any of them link to beatport.com, I'm guessing not as the beatport player is specific.

  6. Probably not. It may link to the actual audio files, if you can get the actual URL's of those audio files (ending in mp3, etc.).

  7. i think in beatports case its more complicated than that.
    not to worry.
    thanks for the advice

  8. You're welcome.

  9. It really would be nice if WP offered something better than the little shortcode player. Perhaps an expansion of the existing player the would provide more options, such as a better look and presenting a list of URLs in playlist form.

    BTW, I got so sick of trying to make the Imeem.com player work in a separate window that I went back through all of my posts and added the shortcode player where needed. Since some of those posts referred to multiple songs, those player enhancements would have been really nice. Having the embedded playlist on the other version of my blog is the only thing I still like better about Blogger.

  10. If you have a music embed code you came add it to vodpod and send it to wordpress. I do that to add, Last.fm and Blip.fm (which uses songs via Imeem).

  11. They used to have the Sonific widget, but I think Sonific went under.

  12. Ya know, with the way these sites are falling off the radar and/or having their list of songs shortened, I think I'm more comfortable using my FileDen connection for access to my own stuff. On my slow machine, it's a real nightmare rebuilding my playlist on another site. But a better WP player would still be nice. 8-)
