A "webflow" music player, or widgets for third party music players!

I would love to see music players available in Webflow. Right now, it can be tough for musicians to add a responsive and nice looking music player, that matches the vibe of their site. Trust me. I’ve been through about 10! Still, with no luck…


Since Webflow does not allow file hosting for anything other than images at this point, a music player wouldn’t be possible. Potentially with the upcoming CMS though. I would however suggest just using the soundcloud embed widgets. They also have skinnable versions.

this would be such a cool component! Would be cooler if we could even design the player ourselves :wink:

The ability to embed 3rd party players into cms posts would be nice. Currently there’s no way to display podcast episodes from Soundcloud or Libsyn.


Hello. I’m jumping into this post because it’s the most recent one that touches upon my current dilemma. I have built a site in Webflow for a client who now insists on having background music (that auto-loads instead of having a controller). If the mp3 (ogg) file is sitting on our host’s server, shouldn’t I be able to simply embed this code and have it work?

<audio autoplay="autoplay">
<source src="http://www.hostgator.com/myaccount/music/MP3file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
<source src="http://www.hostgator.com/myaccount/music/OGGfile.ogg" type="audio/ogg">

If my code is okay, then perhaps the issue is where I am embedding it on the Webflow page? I tried both the custom code section in the HEAD tag, then I tried the BODY tag – and finally, I tried using the code in an “Embed” element I dropped on the page.

Any suggestions? Greatly appreciated!
