    Here’s the page:

    I see this problem in Chrome 17.0.963.83 and Firefox 11.0.

    As you can see some of the audio files are appearing twice, though only the top one seems to work.

    Here’s the code:



    [one_half first]

    <h2>Tune Up – C Major</h2>

    [audio src="/audio/tuneupCMajor.mp3"]


    <h2>Steady Beat</h2>

    [audio src="/audio/metronome.mp3"]




    <h2>Hear the Answer</h2>

    [audio src="/audio/ssl1-01.mp3"]



    I am using a plugin MediaElementjs to display the audio. I have used that plugin without issue on other wordpress sites.

    Is there any way to get the audio to display correctly?

    I’m open to other audio options – but I need something that will display an audio player in html5 for the ipad, but have fallback for flash. There doesn’t seem to be a great solution that covers both. :)

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.



    I don’t know why it doesn’t display correct but you can try plugins like:




    Thanks, that plugin does not work at all for me, but I appreciate the direction.

    Both plugins mentioned something about jquery being called twice – one time by the theme and one time by the plugin. Does that make any sense as to a possible source of the problem? I’m sorry – I don’t know much about that – just mentioning it.

    I’ll keep looking for a solution for playing audio in wordpress. It’s amazing to me how many hours I’ve spent looking for a consistent and reliable way to play audio and how few solutions there seem to be.

    Overall, I love the theme though. :)


    Hi Goonky,

    Audio is definitely not something I see a lot of traffic on so let us know how the search turns out. Its always good to know of plugins for niche/low exposure areas.
