jQuery Flash MP3 player download error

Published 17 May 2009

I am currently having problems with using the Single MP3 Player with the jQuery Flash plugin. To see how the plugin works, check out this page.

The web site I’m working with has the following folder structure:

  • swf/singlemp3player.swf - contains the MP3 player
  • mp3/… - contains all mp3 files

The player can play all files, but it can not download them. The download button just does not work.

After some experimenting, I realized that the player must be placed in the same folder as the MP3 files for downloads to work.

Having the MP3 files and the player in a flat structure is really not an option for me. I could solve the problem by moving things around, but prefer to have a separation of content.

Has anyone used this plugin and solved this problem?
