I have been searching for a while for a solution to embed audio into my webpages. I have previously used JWPlayer and the Google MP3 Player. I found Google's to be a really ugly solution and the JWPlayer does too much for what I need it for.
I wanted something that could take advantage of the HTML5
Anyway after doing some searching, I came across MediaElement.js which is written by John Dyer. MediaElement.js is a cross-browser solution with a consistent interface for audio and video for the web. It has received thumbs up from leading experts such as Chris Coyier and Paul Irish and takes advantage of the HTML5
<video> tags with a Flash fallback. What's also cool is that you can use the MediaElement.js API to wrap YouTube videos into the MediaElement skin to give all videos on your site a more consistent look.
The markup for MediaElement.js is very small as you use the native HTML5
<video> tags to embed your media. Check out some examples below.
