Should have a small audio mode
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The player has a very large default width. Especially for audio samples, such as with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ticket_to_Ride The old player has a default width of 140px, the new player a minimum of 250px (most infoboxes are in the 200px range).

Perhaps an audio-only mode is an idea, where the player might work more in a way similar to the wordpress plugin http://www.1pixelout.net/code/audio-player-wordpress-plugin/ for instance. A small form player that expands to fullwidth after pressing the first play.

There has also been requests for an "inline" audio player, that would be more suited for the pronunciations in articles for instance.

See usecases in: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Audio
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Audio-IPA

The idea would be that clicking the speaker icon would play the sound in html5 mode, and for all other users, you would go to the description page (as you would now). (How to link to file description for copyright issues ? )

I agree the audio player should have a small audio mode.

This is still an issue with the new TMH, see e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPA_vowel_chart_with_audio

I meant small audio players not image players ... I wish bugzilla let you edit comments!
