Radio New Zealand's Open Source Web Based Audio Player

Radio New Zealand have released their first open source project. It's an audio player for websites, written in JavaScript. The source is hosted on github. The player uses the <audio> element if the browser supports it.

The first module (available now) is an audio player plugin based on the jQuery JavaScript library, and version 0.1 already has some interesting features.

It can play Ogg files natively in Firefox 3.1 using the audio tag. It can also play MP3s using the same javascript API - you just load a different filename and the player works out what to do. The project includes a basic flash-based MP3 player, and some example code to get you started.
