  • Mobile Compatible - It is compatible with IOS and Android operating systems.
  • Artist Image - The player will displat the photo of the current playing singer, if is present in the database.
  • Highly Customizable - You can choose from the 2 available skins: back & white. Also, from parameters you can create any color scheme, having the possibility to integrate it in any design.
  • Sticky Version - Parameter to set the radio player in sticky version. It will be sticky only on the page it was inserted. If you want to be sticky on all pages, you should buy the WordPress plugin instead:

  • Show/Hide History - Button to show or hide the history. Also option to start the player with the history hidden.
  • Share - You can share the radio player on Facebook and Twitter. Parameters to customize the share title and description.

  • Multiple Parameters - Over 30 options from where you can customize your player, including: width, autoplay, colors and other parameters.


  • You'll find detailed video tutorials, in the help documentation

Note for IOS & Android (restrictions imposed by Apple & Google): - The autoplay will not work because IOS (and Android) has disabled autoplay feature and it can't be controlled from JS.
