WP Soundsystem is a complete solution to manage a music library within WordPress.
Use it to build or import playlists, manage tracks and audio sources, albums, artists, and play them with our audio player.
Several new post types will be available : Playlists, Radios, Artists, Albums, Tracks and Sources.
Creating and editing playlists is a piece of cake (not to mention the Tracklist Importer):
Add or remove tracks on the fly, reorder them, favorite a track or a tracklist, export…
Tracks can be favorited by your users frontend, or added to any new playlist on-the-fly.
You can link several audio sources to any track.
It can be a the path of an audio file or even music services links like Youtube, or Soundcloud!
Autosource (requires an API key)
If you don’t link audio sources to your track manually, you can enable our autosource module. It will search for remote sources and attach them to your tracks.
Radios are how we call live playlists.
Those playlists are synced with remote webpages or services, and are refreshed seamlessly after a short delay.
Tracklist Importer (requires an API key)
Backup your playlists using the Tracklist Importer.
Popular services (Spotify, Last.fm, Radionomy, Deezer, BBC, Soundcloud, Soundsgood, Hype Machine, Indie Shuffle, RadioKing,…) are available out-of-the-box, just by pasting a playlist link.
More advanced setups are also available, if you are somewhat familiar with CSS Selectors.
Our player uses of the MediaElement.js library, which is native in WordPress. It supports audio (& video) files, but also links from various services like Youtube or Soundcloud.
It has been extended with various features built on top of it, like a tracks queue or a Last.fm scrobbler.
In addition of being able to scrobble on Last.fm, every track favorited by a user connected to his account will also be loved on that service.
Users profiles will get a new music section that lists the user favorite tracks, tracklists, and the ones he created.
It will also fire new BuddyPress activity items.
