Music players are an essential part of the audio hosting websites. They are not just confined to music websites, in fact every website that tends to deal with the audio stuff howsoever requires a sophisticated music player for its visitors to listen without downloading the file.
Though, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox along with few other browsers can play audio files in their own separate players, but, firstly, they cannot play all the formats and, secondly, everyone does not use these particular browsers. Therefore, if you are the owner of an audio hosting website, a music player is a compulsory integration for your traffic.
Merging a music player on your website not only facilitates the listener, but, also helps you by increasing the length of visits which eventually reduces the bounce rate and increases the probability of getting clicks on the advertisement. Music players are sometimes the best analytic tools as they can display the frequency of the audio file listened by the users. Some of them have the option to widget-ize the most played file names, etc.
There are lots of scripts and plugins available on the internet that can easily be integrated into the websites,but certainly not all of them are of the same essence. However, some of them are really worthy and deserves a mention here. I’ve gathered around 15 amazing website music players that I’m sure are the best.
