Embedding the Player with Visual Media


Audio player

The audio player displays the title along with an embedded thumbnail image. If there isn't an embedded image in your audio file, that element simply won't be displayed.


On a personal computer, if you hover over a playing audio file, a progress bar will appear at the bottom. This is where you can navigate within the audio file and change playback settings.


The progress bar shows where you are in playback. You can click anywhere on the bar to navigate to that point in the audio. This makes "fast forwarding" and "rewinding" simple.

To the left of the audio progress bar is the volume slider. You can drag it up and down to adjust volume, or use your keyboard or mobile device volume buttons.


If there are closed captions or a transcript attached to the audio you are listening to, you'll see them by first clicking the gear button then clicking Captions from the menu. From here you'll be able to select the caption file you want to display.

To the left of the CC button is the caption search button, a magnifying glass icon. Click it to search the caption file. Your results will be displayed, showing the caption line and timestamp. Click to navigate to that part of the audio file.


To choose playback speed, first click the gear button then click Speed from the menu. From here, you may select from .25x, .5x, .75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x speeds.

Embedding the Player without Visual Media (Audio-Only)

If you are embedding an audio or video file on an external website, you can use Warpwire's Custom Embed Options to embed an audio-only version of the player.

You can create an audio-only embed code by clicking the Media options icon 3-dots icon and selecting "Share," then clicking the "Embed Code" button at the top.


When an audio-only version of an asset in embedded, it will look just like the video player, but without the video. You'll be able to adjust volume, change playback position, rotate through playback speeds, and copy a share link.
