Live Audio Stream Plugin for JW player

LongTailVideo’s JW player has long been the industry leader in website player technology. It’s no secret that from day one of HTML5 conception, the guys in the JW department have been busy seeing what’s possible for mixing Flash with HTML5.

HTML5 has come a long way since its launch. The first and key points of development were primarily video and audio was mostly forgotten about until a later day. Thankfully that day has come and HTML5 audio tags in the top browsers have become much better with streaming technology. JW appear to have also had a long hard think about the audio tag and what they can add to the offering. Step up the Live Audio plugin.

The Live Audio Stream plugin for JW player looks like a simple skin on top of the standard layout but adds far more than simply a skin. The plug integrates with the HTML5 levels functions allowing for playback on any device and in addition to this, pulls in live ‘Now Playing’ data that’s send along with the stream. Here is a comparison of the player layouts and the full specification of the plugin’s abilities:
