A good open-source media player to imbed in website?

Post by briandc »

I'd like to put a lightweight audio player at the top of my homepage for direct play control. Any suggestions?

So the plot thickens...
I tried the <audio> and <embed> tags mentioned in the w3 website and it works, although low and behold it gives errors in W3C.

I like Mozilla, although I'd like to keep things as "browser independent" as possible just to try to make as many people happy as possible. I need to study this further..
