    Others have raised the issue that Soundcloud has no progress bar - impossible to forward/rewind/start where one wants. When does Wix anticipate having this fixed?

      I have checked your site and noted to the audio play button on your "Menu" page.

      Please note that I was able to hear music when I uploaded mp3 files.

      I also noted that you don't have any mp3 files. In order to hear music you need to upload some tracks.  please follow the instructions here.


      If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us! :)

      Thanks, Rony Customer Solutions

      Hello Rony, 

      Thank you for your comment. I removed the mp3's, so you could not find any. I now uploaded an mp3 again and on my laptop PC they play and it works. But not on my MAC, they will not play. Is the system MAC compatible? Can you check this for me please? Thank you.

      I've noticed that your browser version is outdated, this is probably the issue.

      Make sure to update your browser to the latest version available as this is a crucial requirement when working with HTML5 sites.


      Let us know should the issue persist after you've updated your browser.

    I added music (mp3) with an audio play button. It does not play the music. Please, do you have a solution? The button does not play the mp3!

      Thanks for contacting us.


      I've accessed your site, the music button in the header section (the one over the image) doesn't seem to play. However, the second button under the word "Listen" works great. Please let us know, have you chosen a track to play in the background of the play button in your header section? It seems a track hasn't been selected for this button. Please select a track, click save, publish and check it again in your live site.


      Awaiting your reply,

      - Daniel M, Wix team.

    Please return or add an option for mult-audio playback for professional HTML 5 streaming. My website is based on this function which I converted to Wix from other web hosting for this main feature. I used to run IBM Websphere in the late 1990's hosted by Domain Monger and this worked fine till I moved forward with Wix in 2013 for the same feature with newer options. After using your site in this format you just shut it down? Please make  this option in audio player to toggle multi-audio playback on or off for users. It is huge for professional HTLM 5 users. I have tried Audio Socket and it does not have loop feature and you can not duplicate, or copy a playlist exactly the same. Other 3rd party playlist do not work either. You guys had something that worked great! It was not a bug. It is professional HTML 5 user functional.

      To avoid confusion, are you looking for a feature that allows you to play multiple playbacks in a loop? If yes, note that you can simply pre-edit the audio fly so it will include the multiple playbacks, upload it as an MP3 file to your site and set the audio-player to play in a loop.


      If I misunderstood the issue you are having, please elaborate more and provide us with an example.


      Thank you for your cooperation,

    Please can anyone tell me if you can play continuous music on just one page as I have different music on each page and would like them to play continuously. I also do not want the music to auto play and would like just to click play without the auto play starting, Can any help? 

    • Ron Wix Team

      Replied by Ron March 11, 2014



      To play music continuously, watch the video below:



      1. Add the SoundCloud feature (please make sure you are adding only one) -> click on it and click on "Settings".
      2. Check the "Show on all pages" box.

      If you want the music to start automatically, check also the "Autoplay" box.

      For more information about SoundCloud click here.

    I am in total agreeance about this. This is something that can so easily be implimented - having a progress bar at the top or bottom of the website. I don't want to integrate with Soundcloud for various reasons. 

    It's such a simple feature request and it seems it's been nearly a year since this person asked for the same request and it still hasn't happened!

      Hi massimozeppetelli,

      Thanks for contacting us regarding this issue,

      We have lately added more music features. We currently have the Soundcloud Audio Player, the Audio Play button, the iTunes button and the Spotify player.

      You can find instructions about how to add them, in the best reply above.

      We are also constantly adding more features.

      Thanks, Nicole,

      Nicole, I'm sorry but this is clearly a copy and paste generic answer and doesn't answer my gripes at all. Please can you personally respond to my issue.

      Hi massimozeppetelli,

      I can assure you that I have responded to you personally :)

      I know that the answer might not answer your specific needs but we are however working on adding a new single audio button. 

      I am sorry but I can't provide a date for the release of this feature as we are still working on it.


      Thanks, Nicole,
