An HTML 5 audio player with flash (flow player) fallback / jQuery dependent

Torty Player

Torty is an HTML 5 audio player that falls back to Flowplayer's flash player. Here's how you use it:

Usage

Include jQuery and tortyPlayer.js and add your HTML 5 audio tag:

<audio id="torty-player" preload controls src="http://www.archive.org/download/Cocaine/Cocaine.mp3"></audio>

Add CSS for your audio player, and the flash fallback, which will have the same id as your audio tag, but appended with "-flash"

#torty-player, #torty-player-flash { width: 500px; height: 30px; }

Add some detection javascript:

if($('audio').length) {
    //   
}

Add some audio tag detection javascript:

var audioTag = document.createElement('audio');
if (!(!!(audioTag.canPlayType) && ("no" != audioTag.canPlayType("audio/mpeg")) && ("" != audioTag.canPlayType("audio/mpeg")))) {
    //
}

Tell Torty Player which element to transform into the flash player

tortyPlayer($('#torty-player'),{
    //
});

Specify location for the three flowplayer elements:

swfPlayer : 'flowplayer-3.2.7.swf',
swfControl : 'flowplayer.controls-3.2.5.swf',
swfAudio : 'flowplayer.audio-3.2.2.swf'

Once it's put together, it should look something like this:

if($('audio').length) {
    var audioTag = document.createElement('audio');
    if (!(!!(audioTag.canPlayType) && ("no" != audioTag.canPlayType("audio/mpeg")) && ("" != audioTag.canPlayType("audio/mpeg")))) {
        tortyPlayer($('#torty-player'),{
            swfPlayer : 'flowplayer-3.2.7.swf',
            swfControl : 'flowplayer.controls-3.2.5.swf',
            swfAudio : 'flowplayer.audio-3.2.2.swf'
        });
    }    
}

Enjoy the Torty!
