hey i think most of you have clicked the audio button/link in the post editor, but audio wasn't among the formats supported on free blogs!
well it's still better that wordpress.com kept the martin laine's 1 pixel out player/wp audio player even if it doesn't allow uploading audio files to free version of its services, well you need upgrade i think they call it audio upgrade or space upgrade something like that, to upload audio files to you blog.
but it's better because we have access to Martin Laine's audio player, better because wordpress.com doesn't allow plugins upload by users.
thank wordpress and martin laine for it.
well there is a shortcode for embedding audio into your wordpress.com blog doing it the free way upload your files somewhere on the web, there are many services available on the web that host your files free and many even anonymously.
so put up your files there and get a link, remember it should be a direct link otherwise things don't work, most of the links by default provided by thesefile hosts are sharing links mean they open up a web page where there is usually a button/link governed by often js. so its better to choose your host or have a plan to get the link.
so the shortcode is [audio] and syntax for adding the audio to the post/page is
remember to keep space between audio and URL
i have tested it with soundcloud and mediafire.
let us know what works for you,
so others too can use it...
remember its GPL...:)
