At first, I thought these two were fab music players for Tumblr, considering their ease of use, customisation options and seamless play across pages.
I still think these features make these players the best choices that are out there, at this time. However, they both have one significant flaw in the code, that makes them override the screen position of the browser’s content area in tumblelogs (tested in Firefox and IE).
You can see in the images below what this looks like:
Because of this problem, I have looked around for an alternative player as a replacement.
Thus far, the best one I have found is TotallyPlayer by ThemesLtd.
TotallyPlayer operates very similar to SCM Music Player and Wikplayer, but it does have a few limitations:
First of all, the skins are basically all textured, with no custom CSS option, meaning it’s nearly impossible to find any player that has a solid colour or anything close. In addition, the song info display is limited, meaning that long strings of text will not display properly.
Also, I noticed that my MP3 links are always cut in the final code, meaning that I have to edit the code to replace the links before I can use it.
If you can get past these few quirks, however, you will have a player that looks alright, features seamless play, and does not mess up the rendition of any page on your blog.
I have currently implemented TotallyPlayer player on this blog, if you want to see how it looks and works live. The skin I chose for this player can be found under the Stripes Music Players section.
