Wimpy MP3 Player
LINUX, MAC, UNIX or WINDOWS server running PHP or ASP.
1. Create a new folder named "mp3s" on your website.
2. Upload all the Wimpy files to the new folder on your website.
3. Open a web browser and navigate to the Wimpy Script file.
If the example.mp3 file does not show up in the playlist, or after accessing the Wimpy Script file all you see is a bunch of code, or a black screen, then your server does not have either PHP, ASP or ColdFusion installed, depending on the type of files you just installed. Try installing a different version. For example, if you installed the PHP demo and it did not work, then try installing the ASP demo.
Some web hosting companies claim to have PHP or ASP installed on their web server, however, PHP and ASP can be configured by the server administrator to prevent certain functions from working. Wimpy takes advantage of certain functions, such as directory reading, in order to automatically display the contents of the installation folder. Contact your hosting provider to see if they can remove the PHP or ASP limitations on your account.
ALTERNATIVES TO PHP, ASP OR ColdFusion
Running Wimpy off of XML Playlists.
Using an "Embedded Playlist"
To control the look and feel of the player, apply a skin or to control the way the player behaves, use the Customizer tool. Click here to access the Customizer tool. The Customizer tool also allows you to generate HTML code so that you can include Wimpy in any web page on your site.
You can use the HTML code that the Customizer tool outputs by copying and pasting the Wimpy Player HTML code anywhere between the opening <body> and closing </body> tags in your HTML pages.
You can also create your own skin using Skin Machine in order to make the look and feel of Wimpy conform to your web site's design. Click here for more information on creating your own skin and Skin Machine.
