Standards-based Audio and Video Player
Support Every Device
Supporting every device is difficult. You can use HTML5 or Flash to play your media, but by using only one, you leave out many people. With the Some Techie Media Player, you don't have to choose.
With automatic support for HTML5, Flash, and Windows Media, the Some Techie Media Player can play embedded media even on Internet Explorer 8 with or without Flash.
Audio, especially streaming audio, is difficult to play on any website. The few solutions that do exist either don't support the iPad, don't support streaming audio, or aren't customizable. The Some Techie Media Player makes audio easy.
Just use standard HTML media code to add the audio to your page, and Some Techie will handle the rest. It can handle mp3, ogg, webm, wav, and streaming audio. Specify multiple sources, and if one source isn't available, the player will automatically failover to a working source.
<audio style="width:400px" controls> <source src="http://server1.joyfulmeditations.org/mp3stream" type="audio/mpeg"/> <source src="http://server2.joyfulmeditations.org/mp3stream" type="audio/mpeg"/> <source src="http://server1.joyfulmeditations.org/oggstream" type="audio/ogg"/> <source src="http://server2.joyfulmeditations.org/oggstream" type="audio/ogg"/> <source src="http://server1.joyfulmeditations.org/wavstream" type="audio/wav"/> <source src="http://server2.joyfulmeditations.org/wavstream" type="audio/wav"/> </audio>
Video presents a huge set of challenges. Some devices can only play video using Flash. Some devices don't support Flash and require the use of HTML5 media elements. Even the browsers that support HTML5 media have different format requirements. The Some Techie Media Player makes it easy by automatically choosing how to play on each browser.
You just add standard HTML5 media code and Some Techie takes care of the rest. It even falls back to Windows Media Player when Flash and HTML5 are both unavailable.

Make it Yours
Most Flash players give you very few options when styling the controls. The Some Techie Media Player gives you full control over the look of the player.Change the color of the control bar, adjust the size of the controls, and choose your own font for the current position. You don't need to learn a proprietary skinning language. Just use standard CSS to create your own skin, and even the Flash player will honor it. You can even start with our vector image sources to create completely customized images for your controls.
