I am working on a site hosted locally right now and I have been trying very unsuccessfully to incorporate a simple mp3 player that will sit nicely within a block for my page. I'm using an Omega Subtheme right now.
My first attempt was to use the jPlayer module. I tried to incorporate this into a Views block using instructions found on a couple sites, particularly helpful was this one (http://drupal.org/node/1340254). I spent about a day trying to get this solution to work, but every attempt ended up breaking ajax or something on views and spitting out a page full of code.
My alternate and ideal solution was to call a jquery plugin from a block using php code. I've done this before with the jparallax plugin after some tweaking on a previous site http://www.bplmusic.com but this is proving to be a whole different beast.
Here are the two plugins that I was hoping to use
Both would be perfect for what I need if I could get this to work, but I want to know if this is even possible.
I'm ok with calling my script from my themes .info file and this is working when checked with firebug, but I cant figure out how to get the player to actually show when I start plugging code into my blocks.
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated by not only me, but surely others who have been less than impressed with the selection of reliable and versatile music players for Drupal.
