Topic: Simpleviewer incompatibility with js media player (mediaelement.js)

I was slightly disappointed to find that audio doesn't work in the mobile version of the gallery. I would like to be able to play the soundtrack of an interview while people browse an image gallery on a mobile device i.e. ipad.

I'm trying to add an external html5/flash audio player, however the ones I have found use jquery and seem to have compatibility issues - the code works if I remove the simpleviewer embed code, but it breaks as soon as simpleviewer is present.

I'm using Mediaelement.js

Does anyone know what might cause a compatibility problem? Or can anyone recommend an html5 with flash fallback audio player that will work with simpleviewer?


Media element has the following in the head:

<script src="mediaelement/jquery.js"></script>   
<script src="mediaelement/mediaelement-and-player.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="mediaelement/mediaelementplayer.min.css" />

Then in the body:

<audio id="player1" src="../mp3/ncho.mp3" type="audio/mp3" controls="controls"></audio>   

See this example: … audio.html

If I remove reference to the simpleviewer.js the audio player works.

<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>

As in this example. … imple.html

Many thanks for your help, Adrian

Do you have an exmaple with the <script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script> both of the links go to the same page and it does not contain the <script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>, also the audio is also not playing in the page without the simpleviewer.js. SimpleViewer should work with other JavaScript libraries see the faq for more info.
