WOOCOMMERCE INTEGRATION

WavePlayer is now fully compatible with WooCommerce. The integration aims to automate as much as possible the creation process for music products, such as music singles or music albums. The new features are not limited to a simple cart button added to each track but include a full list of options that will ease the way your audio tracks interact with your store. You can find more details in the page about working with WooCommerce.

FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENT

All player instances in a single page are loaded simultaneously, reducing enormously the loading time and making the interaction with the server much faster and more efficient. For example, if you have 10 instances on a page, the older versions of WavePlayer sent 10 calls to the server, getting the playlist of each instance at a time. WavePlayer 2.0 analyzes the current page and send to the server a single request for all the instances on the page. This makes the interaction with the server more efficient and reduces the loading time enormously.


PEAK FILES

Audio tracks get analyzed as soon as they are uploaded to the Media Library. This way you do not have to wait for the waveform to be render when using a track for the first time, which is particularly useful for extremely large files. Moreover, a fully renovated Maintenance section allows you to Manage peak files more easily.
