    <audio id="audio" preload="auto" tabindex="0" controls="" type="audio/mpeg">
        <source type="audio/mp3" src="http://mwtdatabase.weebly.com/files/theme/Sample1.mp3">
        Sorry, your browser does not support HTML5 audio.
    <ul id="playlist">
        <li class="active" style="background: #333"><a href="http://mwtdatabase.weebly.com/files/theme/Sample1.mp3">Sample Music 1</a></li>
        <li style="background: #333"><a href="http://mwtdatabase.weebly.com/files/theme/Sample2.mp3">Sample Music 2</a></li>
        <li style="background: #333"><a href="http://mwtdatabase.weebly.com/files/theme/Sample3.mp3">Sample Music 3</a></li>
        <li style="background: #333"><a href="http://mwtdatabase.weebly.com/files/theme/Sample4.mp3">Sample Music 4</a></li>


Red text - This is the default music link which is ready to play on the player.
Green text - You music links.
Yellow text - The title of your song.


You can actually separate the playlist from the player and set their own sizes. I really need to use inline CSS because the list styles, if not inline, will affect your navigation menus. I tested the player on my phone and seems working fine.

  1. Thanks Domz! I finally figured out that I needed to put the jquery.js in the footer, and then it worked for me! Now I am frustrusted trying to get another player--that I would prefer to use--to work: http://jsfiddle.net/xt8mxex0/ I have it working on jsfiddle, but can't get it to work on Weebly. Can you tell me what I need to do to make it work on Weebly?
