I love WordPress.com (guess that’s obvious ‘coz my blog is here, heh), and now I love it even more ‘coz now you have an audio tag that lets you play MP3s from aywhere on the Net. And you can upload Mp3s and video on different file formats. They don’t have a movie player yet, but they said they’re working on it — how cool is that? Check out the Songs and Movies on WordPress.com post for more info.

Here’s the test file they provide — 5 minutes from a podcast interview with the WordPress.com admins.

  1. […] read this from the Babel Machine blog. Yes, finally, WordPress will now allow you to upload videos and music. Sweet! Or if you have […]

  2. how did you do this pre? can’t figure it out. i copied and pasted code but the player won’t come out the way it did in your post. help!!

  3. hi p’re, that audio tag is for blogs hosted on wordpress.com, that’s why i specified wordpress.com hehe 🙂 wordpress.com has a number of restrictions that don’t apply to those using wordpress on another host — for instance, as of now need a special youtube tag to embed youtube clips, ‘coz the usual embed codes from youtube won’t work. we also can’t run javascript. but wordpress.com is slowly allowing more and more multimedia and plug-ins once they’re satisfied these won’t be a security risk.

    since you’re using another host, you should have no problem uploading audio and video files 🙂 just go to your wp-admin page and see w/c formats are allowed for uploading, and add those you want.

    hope this helps.

    cheers,
    joey
