:: Streampad Music Player for Tumblr v2 (Spotify bug fix, shuffle songs, ID3 tags, tag playlist + more)
Streampad Music Player v2
Bug-fix [01/30/13]: Temporarily (or permanently? hah.) solves problems caused by tumblr API encoding audio URLs
NEW: Okay! Made it SUPER idiot-friendly for most users on tumblr. You should now be able to install this fairly easily without trouble since I minified the code and removed the extra jQuery dependency.
And if you still can’t get it working, well.. blame yourself for not knowing how to copy and paste. :p
NEW feature: Shuffle. You can now shuffle songs.
NEW feature: Play songs from other tumblr blogs: you can now play songs from other tumblr blogs (must be audio posts).
NEW feature: Blacklist by tag. you can now set a “Do not play” Playlist tag, which will make the player not play audio posts if they are tagged with it.
NEW feature: Transparent Streampad. you can now toggle the Streampad Player to be transparent.
NEW feature: Play forever. Streampad now automatically starts playing the first song in the playlist after the final song plays. Also, pressing the ‘Previous track’ button when the first song is playing now jumps back to the last song.
NEW feature: Mute Button. Volume controls have been improved and now have a mute button. Toggle mute by clicking on the volume button. Also, if Volume Controls are disabled, volume will automatically be set to loudest setting since your preferences are saved to the Flashplayer and it remembers how loud your volume is across all blogs that have Streampad.
NEW: Playlist tag no longer has to be unique. You can set a Playlist tag which will make the player only play audio posts which are tagged with this specific tag. In this update, the tag no longer needs to be unique to audio-posts, and it can contain text/photo/etc. posts without crashing the player. E.g. I can now tag both a photo post and audio post with ‘music’ and when I specify the playlist tag to be “music”, Streampad will play music posts only tagged “music”.
NEW: Show ID3 tags for audio captions: Changes the audio caption on the Streampad Bar to show [Artist] - [Track Title] which is grabbed from the ID3 tags in the audio post (instead of showing the description text of the post).
Bug-fix: the player now safely ignores Spotify audio posts which it wasn’t originally designed to handle because they are actually iframes and don’t link to an actual .mp3 file. This is probably the major cause of all the complaints that I’ve seen where their Streampad was not working properly and it was stuck at “Loading Audio Posts…”. It’s because they posted or reblogged a post with a Spotify track and it made the entire thing stop working.
