Custom Audio Player Using HTML5,JavaScript And CSS


To Create Custom Audio Player It Takes Only Three Steps:-

  1. Make a HTML file and define markup
  2. Make a js file and define scripting
  3. Make a CSS file and define styling


Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup

We make a HTML file and save it with a name player.html

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="player.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="player.css">
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">
<div id='player'>
<audio id="music_player">
<source src="music/sample_music.mp3"/>
</audio>
<input type="image" src="images/play.png" onclick="play_aud()" id="play_button">
<input type="image" src="images/pause.png" onclick="pause_aud()" id="play_button">
<input type="image" src="images/stop.png" onclick="stop_aud()" id="play_button">
<img src="images/volume.png" id="vol_img">
<input type="range" id="change_vol" onchange="change_vol()" step="0.05" min="0" max="1" value="1">
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we insert an audio file using HTML5 audio tag and create three buttons for play, pause and stop and also created a range tag to adjust the volume of audio and we also insert our js and css file which we were going to create in next steps.You may also like play sound on notification using JavaScript.



Step 2.Make a js file and define scripting

We make a js file and save it with a name player.js

document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() { startplayer(); }, false);
var player;

function startplayer() 
{
 player = document.getElementById('music_player');
 player.controls = false;
}

function play_aud() 
{
 player.play();
} 
function pause_aud() 
{
 player.pause();
}
function stop_aud() 
{
 player.pause();
 player.currentTime = 0;
}
function change_vol()
{
 player.volume=document.getElementById("change_vol").value;
}

In this step we create 5 functions for working with our audio player.In startplayer() function we first initialise our player and set the browser default controls to false so that our custom functions will work and all the rest of the functions is used to play,pause,stop and change volume of the audio player.



Step 3.Make a CSS file and define styling

We make a CSS file and save it with a name player.css

body
{
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
 background-color:#58ACFA;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:995px;
}
#player
{
 background-color:#084B8A;
 width:400px;
 margin-left:300px;
 padding:5px;
 box-sizing:border-box;
}
input[type="image"]
{
 float:left;
 height:20px;
 margin-left:2px;
 margin-right:5px;
 margin-top:2px;
}
#vol_img
{
 margin-left:150px;
 width:20px;
}
