Hidden In Plain Sight: FMA's Pop-Out Player

Look at all those fancy features!




We often get messages from users asking how they could preview songs efficiently, without having to download everything that looked interesting. Well, friends, you can! And it's right at your fingertips! 

Ever notice the little symbols next to tracks on our site? There's a star (for those of you who log in -- clicking the star marks a song or album as a 'favorite' and allows you to find it again later; all favorites are stored in a big ol' list at your profile page), a plus sign (which launches the pop-out player), and a 'down' arrow (which is the download button). 

We know, the plus sign isn't the most obvious ideogram for "add this song to the pop-out player," and we're sorry about that. But now you know what that arcane little symbol means. 

Anyway, once you click, it'll launch a separate player that has features you've come to expect from audio players across the web: the ability to scrub and skip through a track, and the ability to control the volume. The tracks you click on will add themselves to the queue in this magic little box. If you've made playlists in the past, you'll be able to find them in the drop-down menu (the default is called "Working," as in "Working on my next killer mix"). 

You can add and remove songs, or even clear the whole playlist and start fresh. This tool is indispensable for anyone who wants to leverage the full power of the FMA to their advantage! Go forth, FMA'liens, and mix like the wind! (And if you are proud of your mixes, send us links, we always wanna share new & exciting selections from our community.)

I was testing in Firefox and Google Chrome and the FMA player does not work for me. I already tried what it says in the 'Help' section. Somebody help me please?

I can't get this to work anymore, which makes the site hard to use.

This feature stopped working for me a little while back. I've tried using Chrome, Firefox, and Edge but they all seem to struggle opening the player.

I am new here, but considering the posts above, this player is not working for more than a year... WTF? The Site is quite completely useless, if you have to listen to every song from the beginning.
I tried everything, this player doesn't appear...

Hey FMA! Is it possible to get the player back up and running? Would REALLY be a game changer to let people peruse through the libraries and find what they're looking for again. Love this site, but no scrub-a-bility makes it pretty tough to use. xoxo

The value of this amazing resource would increase exponentially with a working pop-out player. Especially one with waveform visualization and a scroll bar.
