    First off all, i love this plugin, its great. I was having no issues with it until i installed a database optimizer plugin and optimized my database, it totally stopped working then, so i restored my database to before installing the database optimizer and the player came back but is giving me this message now : Update Required To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin. Can you please advise? Thank you…

    1. Ali

      Hey im having the same issue how did you fix yours?

    Hi, thanks for this great plugin!
    I’ve made three playlists before I upgraded WP from 3.5.1 to 3.8.1 – now I can’t save playlists anymore. However, I’m able to add songs to the playlists that exist and everything is working otherwise, player version is 2.1.1. File/folder permission problems perhaps? Or something to do with WP Supercache – I’ve disabled that plugin but the problem with creating new playlists is still there…

    1. vasitellapahki

      Addition to previous: after I try to create new playlist I get “Your playlist has been created succesfully.” but there’s no new playlist to be seen in the list of playlists.

    Great plug-in. Thanks for making it available. I’d like to second a request for controlling its opacity. Any chance for making fonts customizable? I mean google fonts hook up.

    Hi Brutal design, You can solve these two problems for your plugin?
    1) When used on wordpress with safe mode enabled on the server, when you save a playlist you receive “Error 403″, forcing you to disable security measures via htaccess;
    2) This plugin is not secure, the URL displays the folder to install the plugin (open to all hackers on the planet!)
    3) On Facebook, the link is shared single.php etc. and if you want to embed the player on Facebook to listen to your music from there as I do?


  6. Lionell

    Im not sure why but the shortcode isn’t working for me when i type it in a page.
    [wolf_jplayer_playlist id="1"]

    Also I cant find the directions ;(

    Please help me….

  7. Cyndi

    I can’t seem to be able to load up artwork, I click on the button and nothing happens, running site on Genesis framework. Thank you.

    Hi, after latest update: still not able to create new playlist and additionally, now plugin backend won’t let me choose the image for logo or artwork…

    - after I try to create new playlist I get “Your playlist has been created succesfully.” but there’s no new playlist to be seen in the list of playlists
    - does not respond to “Choose an image” (Logo and Artwork)

    Beautiful player. I badly want to use it, but I’m experiencing what must be a conflict with my theme styles. I’m using “Jupiter” and there are a lot of “jp-” class names. Is there an easy way to isolate the styling of your plugin from the theme?

  10. ste

    Hey Brutal Design, ive got to take my hat off to you pal for listening to us about the security issue, this has made me happy as the url structure your popout player shows is now much better :) , you are a star pal. this has to be one of the best players i can find and for free! n1

  11. ste

    hi again BrutalDesign after further testing of this update i can also confirm you cannot upload album covers or logos etc.

  12. James

    Yes, I’m having the same problem. Can no longer upload logo’s – no pop-up browser appears. Guessing it’s a new conflict?

  13. Benjamin

    Hi, Great work on this plugin so far, this is badly needed.
    However, I’m experiencing some issues:
    -The Settings won’t allow me to upload any content (album art, logos, or mp3 files)
    -In the player, the song titles don’t show up centered, as they do in your demo. (They display closer to the top.)
    Any help is greatly apreciated, thanks again for this.

  14. Dominic

    I have installed your plugin, and it looks really cool. Unfortunately, I cannot upload any artwork or logos. I also cannot upload songs. Whenever I click one of these buttons, the website goes to (I just replaced my URL with I have tried de-activating all of my other plugins, but that does not seem to work. Any help is appreciated.

  15. James

    Thanks Brutal Design!

    I’d be happy to pay for this plugin once it’s all sorted.

    Not sure how everyone else feels but I think there’s a real lack of functional options in this area which is surprising. Incorporating a floating player (that actually does play continuously) would be great too. *wink*

    Thanks for your hard work.

    1. BrutalDesign


      This plugin is free and probably always will be..
      Actually, there is already an repeat button at the top right corner of the player


  16. Julie

    This plugin is great but I have one problem with using it. When I use cyrillic to type the song name, it displays as ??????
    Other plugins displays cyrillic correct. I don’t know what should I do to fix this bug :( Have you any idea what should I check to find a cause?

  17. Julie

    The problem is solved :)
    It appears that were created tables with wrong encoding (latin1_swedish_ci instead of utf8_general_ci) . I putted .htaccess file into directory /plugins and wrote there AddDefaultCharset UTF-8, then i removed plugin and installed it again and it works! May it be useful for somebody. Thanks for your plugin :)

  18. Tronkybs

    There is a way to incorporate the statistics in this plugin? Example: How many play were performed to a playlist? How many were made to play a song? I think this feature can be very useful at all.

  19. BrutalDesign

    Hey guys,
    Actually, I’m having hard time to reproduce the bug with the image upload and colorpicker…
    Would you be able to give me more details? Are you running the latest WP version (currently 3.8.1) ? Did you tried with a default theme?

    My first guess is that it is a js conflict, but I would like to find out with what

    Any of you guys have a javascript debugger like this one?

    Any further detail to help me to fix this would be much appreciated

  20. stephen

    Ty for the update once again Brtutal Design, i didnt see your earlier post asking what versioon etc but yes im using default twenty twelve and latest wordpress when the problems arisen, i gues you resolved them now in this new update, i will download now and check it out and get back to you, ty once again! :)

  21. stephen

    Hey Again Brutal Design, After extensively testing and using your march 25th update i have found only one small issue (bug maybee?) and also have one more suggestion then this plugin will be perfect, ok the problem is with when activating the scroll bar on the player after 5 artists are added, if you add say 10 or more mp3s to test you will see it, i will explain, first add 10 mp3s then activate the scroll after 5 feature, then use the widget to display the playlist, then go to your sidebar and scroll down and click various tracks you have added and you will notice that when you click one it will not play and will scroll back up a little, however if you then scroll back down to the same track you was trying to play a second time it will then play.
    tested on blank default twenty twelve theme no other plugins, probably just a small fix for you to do, and i have a suggestion for you, is it possible to keep the scroll feature seperate from the pop out feature? meaning that if you use the player in pop out mode after the scroll feature is activated if you expand the player to fullscreen the scroll feature is still active in the pop out feature as 5 too, this creates alot of blank space under the initial 5 tracks, the pop up feature would be better if it didnt use the scroll after 5 function so you have a full scrollable playlist when in full screen pop out mode, does this make sense? lol , and ty for your work.

  22. stephen

    maybee i could explain better? keep the scroll after 5 feature on the embeded or widget player but use the original scroll feature in the pop out window so you can scroll fullscreen.

    Since updating to version 2.1.7, my site will only display the background image so i have had to disable the plugin, is there anyway i can download version 2.1.6 or can you please advise?

  24. Rob

    I really like this plugin it offers a lot of great functions, but it recently had some conflicts with my site after i updated it. Whenever i have the plugin activated it breaks the responsiveness of my site for some reason and when i have it deactivated my site goes back to normal. I dont even know how it did that. If you would like please help me out on this.

    Plus i do also want to get a hold of an older version of wolf-jplayer when it didnt have a conflict with my site, so would you please in the future put the ability to download older versions of your plugins.

  25. Erika

    Hello, congratulations is a great plugin.

    Thanks in advance

    Best Regards
