Audio Player for Modern UI
For modern pages in SharePoint online, could there be a sound player. I have an audio file (MP3) and it would be good to be able to play that from the page.
Absolutely required - or even if just using the embed feature it recognised that the file was audio, not video, and just gave basic playback controls that didn't take up so much height! i don't need a player that looks like its playing blank video to just listen to audio files, especially if we need to put several audio examples on a page.
I would extend this that I Need a Podcast App for Teams. In Streams it isn't possible to upload Audiofiles and no Management for These.
One way to display an audio player is by using the <audio> tag, which you can do by adding a custom web part (Modern script editor, for those interested). This is really a complex thing to do for the average user just for something so seemingly simple.
Yes, totally agreed. We need a way to embed audio files so they can play on a live SharePoint site the same way we can do with videos via Stream.
