Is it possible to play audio from a static Jekyll page?


I did a little poking around and found what looked to be like html to get the job done. It actually kind of worked. My page recognized how long the song was for a brief moment. I also was able to download the song file from my static page using the download button (which was no longer enabled when I took the screen shot).

<audio src="/assets/2018-03-21/audio.wav" controls preload></audio>

The empty player

Is it possible to play music directly from my page?


Yes, see


Yes, see the Octopod extension for Jekyll that let’s you build podcast (audio) and radio talk show (static) websites with feeds and incl. a web audio player for every episode incl. show notes and more Cheers.
