New Player in the Works

We have received many bug reports and feature requests concerning the audio players on the FMA site.  This includes the in-page player (play buttons on the webpages) and our outdated flash-based pop-out playlist player.  I am currently developing a brand new html5 pop-out playlist player for the site and am working to remove the last traces of flash from FMA, which includes portions of the image and audio uploaders.  I hope to have all of this completed by Jan. 31 so keep watching here for updates!

Nice work, but hopefully the download option remains!

yay! I'm especially excited about the flash part since it may allow for browser uploads on iOS Devices.

Awesome! Thanks for your hard work. I've refrained from reporting the bugs, because I love your site so much!

FMA you doing good job, love this place no for music only but for independency. Thank you so much. All the best.

Thanks only, this 6 comments (so far) do not reflect accurately what a great service FMA -and you behind it- serves.
I've recently used a song by Burning Van, por Big Mean Sound Machine in this video (where a doctor from argentina explains when medical marijuana can be useful)
Where did I get it? Of course, here, the best way around musical collective consciousness in the entire world ;).

That's awesome. If you want any dev help (I have 15+ experience as a webdev), just message me!

Pop out player still not working? Just wondering. Not working on my Chrome

@craeon i think so too...
for me in firefox it is also not working.
i think it is not updated / ready yet.

if i look in the developer console i can see that it tries to use the old swf (flash) player..
'TypeError: this.swf.addToPlaylist is not a function'

hopefully rosso can give us a update - i also can help if needed :-)

Any updates?! For years, you're site has been a cornerstone of the audio community. I hope that you are receiving enough support to get your player back up and running.

Hello - Can I suggest that the player-related elements of the web pages be removed until the player is working?

I've been using the "add to player" buttons to collect selections after evaluation and now discover that my selections are lost.

Off-the-cuff suggestion: replace with a streaming playlist builder that the user can then use with a local client of choice?

Running out of space but THANKS for FMA x 1000 etc etc... :-)

this dev post is now getting close to a year past the launch ETA for pop out player. Is there any support the users can offer to help the process along? I'm sure there are web devs willing to chip in or maybe we can start a GoFundMe campaign if funds are a problem?
Keep up the great work.

I'm sure no one here needs reminding how tedious it is to manually trawl through literally thousands of tracks looking for the perfect fit if you can't hop past the first 20 seconds and then hop to 2/3rds the way through, just to get a quick impression before skipping to the next track...

GOod luck FMA devs!!!!
