    I have music on another site, (Reverbnation). I would like my visitors to be able to hear this music without being directed back, (linked), to Reverbnation. However, when I use the [audio] code and insert the URL into the code, all I get is the player. Clicking the play button does nothing except say that the song is “buffering”. It never gets past buffering.

    Thanks.

    The audio player shortcode can only play mp3 files to which it has direct access.
    A general link to reverbnation page won’t work.

    To clarify:
    [audio http://www.reverbnation.com/tunepak/3455117 ] won’t work
    but
    [audio http://somesite.com/filename.mp3 ] will

    Unfortunately, nothing works. I uploaded my songs to Soundcloud. As instructed by both WordPress and Soundcloud, I embedded the player. It doesn’t work. The player is there, but clicking the actual play button does nothing. After a few dozen tries, I finally gave up, and instead inserted the WordPress [audio] code, with the direct link to the song properly inserted within it. Still doesn’t work. Just says “buffering” forever. Any ideas?

    Could you send me a link to a page/post where you’ve added the audio player? I’ll be happy to look into this for you. :-)
