1 Bit Audio Player : A JavaScript-inserted Flash MP3 player for WordPress blogs and other websites

1 Bit Audio Player is a very simple and lightweight Adobe Flash MP3 player with automatic JavaScript insertion. It’s main purpose is to act as a quick in-page preview for audio files you link to from your website or blog.

The player can be easily installed as a WordPress plugin or used stand-alone in any website. Small audio players will than automatically appear next to any MP3s you link to.

This is a variation on the del.icio.us PlayTagger in concept but not code, with the new feature that you can exlcude some MP3 links from 1 Bit by setting the ‘include only class’ or ‘exclude class’ options to CSS classes that you have set on your tags.

JPEGs vs album covers

Design Observer: writings about design & culture

Are JPEGs the New Album Covers?

Black to Comm “Levitation/Astoria.” 7” Lathe-Cut Picture Disc, design by Marc Richter and Renate Nikolaus. Dekorder Records.

Over the past few months I’ve been researching a book about current record cover art. Besides hunting down examples of stimulating music graphics, I’ve also been looking for digital alternatives to the traditional album cover.

Iranian micro-bloggers

The person who posted about Play Twitter in a language I couldn’t identify — it turned out to be Persian (the language of Iran), rather than Arabic — stopped back in the comments on my Audio afspelen in Twitter post and left this note:

Audio afspelen in Twitter – Play Twitter at Enthousiasmeren

Erno Hannink has done an excellent overview of Play Twitter in Dutch, much better than my original.

Audio afspelen in Twitter – Play Twitter at Enthousiasmeren:

Play Twitter is een handig hulpmiddel waarmee je eenvoudig mp3 files direct kunt afspelen in Twitter.

As a follow-up, he has tested out Play Twitter at the Twitter clone Jaiku and confirmed that it works fine.

Courtesy of the trackbacks on my blog entry, I know that there also exists a blog entry on Play Twitter in either Persian or Arabic. Sorry, I don’t have the chops to say which.
