I am managing a music record label. I am looking for some help to have a custom audio player on my site. I am currently developing and building a new website on Squarespace.
The audio features of Squarespace do not match our current needs. I am interested in developing a custom audio player.
My Squarespace site is:
[login to view URL]
Here my actual site: [login to view URL]
Where you can have an idea of the audio player we are using. It is a custom audio player.
What I need for an audio player is:
-to have multiples playlist on one page (catalogue page of more releases).
-to have the player that pop up and appears on the bottom of the site when the user starts a track from an album tracklist (it should be well adapted and displayed with the footer of the site)
-the tracklist of an EP or album is having some ‘’play button’’
-the user can play one track from a tracklist or has the possibility of click on “play all” the tracklist of an album or EP
-the user can close the audio player if he wants to
-the music will keep playing while the user is navigating on multiples pages of the site, so it increase the user experience (point to verify and find a work around, it seems that Squarespace not support ajax loading for pages and reload on each page but a workaround is possible with the template we use we can enable Ajax Loading)
-when a track end, it’s playing automatically to the next one of the EP or album (of the tracklist selected)
-the audio players has more features: play/pause/volume/go back track/go next track/close the player, length of the track/ track and artist title
-the audio player have to be mobile responsive
-I will need to be able to create new tracklists and upload tracks from Squarespace builder space (without doing any code for that)
-the design of the player should be adapted to our site (font, color, buttons etc.) We can reuse a similar design to our actual audio player ([login to view URL])
note for design:
Very similar to Oxmose, difference are:
-a bit bigger with the audio player block
-buttons are a bit bigger
-font and color of new site + font size a bit bigger as per new site
-reduced version view for responsive mobile (decide together what info we/text we display for responsive view)
-playlists on catalogue page: buttons play from the playlist of catalogue page must be like on the actual square space, not round, like the design of albums display from Squarespace, simple and no background with font of the size, track name and time
-we will make some adjustments of design
We are a clear from the design that need to be made.
You will place the code directly in our Square Space site, but you will also have to provide us the full code of the player and tell us where we need to place it in the custom space of Squarespace. This way we are fully independent and we could modify some features / colors etc. of the player if we want in the future.
And we will make some tests to be sure the audio player is fully functional (for example upload new tracklist on the site, new audio content etc.)
Workaround for Squarespace with ajax loading:
[login to view URL]
The brine template we are using can support the ajax loading, we just need to activate it.
It exists some customs audio players already made on Squarespace, here an example: [login to view URL]
The web dev needs to be very aware of the environment of Squarespace site builder and the audio features so he can custom and we will still be able to manage our audio content.
Squarespace allow accessing to the full code of the site, also to add some code section with different languages: CSS/HTML etc.
Could you kindly help me?
Many thanks in advance for your answer!
