    It was already suggested as a core feature of Xenforo here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/attachment-mp3-player.354/ , but it could also be a modification.

    In vBulletin it was quite simple. There was a code that had to be inserted in postbit attachment template:

    <!-- Embed Player -->  <vb:if condition="$attachment[attachmentextension] == mp3">  <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.google.com/reader/ui/3247397568-audio-player.swf?audioUrl=attachment.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}attachmentid={vb:raw attachment.attachmentid}&amp;d={vb:raw attachment.dateline}" width="400" height="27" allowscriptaccess="never" quality="best" bgcolor="#ffffff" wmode="window" flashvars="playerMode=embedded" />
    </vb:if>  <!-- /Embed Player -->
    perhaps it is similar in Xenforo?

    could someone smart take a look at this?
    it is probably very simple :)

    I just need this sctructure in xenforo attachment template:

    if attachment.extension = mp3
    than embed the attachment in the player

    I don't know how to do it though...

    Wish I knew how to do this because it is very cool to have an embedded mp3 player in posts :)

    Good luck on getting this done or finding someone to help with it.

    Please, could someone check what is the variable for attachment extensions?
    I am sure there is a way of rewriting this simple code from vBulletin to Xenforo... I am not knowledgeable enough to do that...

    I think as [media] item it shall be possible.

    There is actually no such variable, you have to check if extension is mp3 somewhere in an add-on and write a result to the corresponding $posts['attachments'] array's element, and only after that you can use that variable in your attached_files template.

    Somehow XenForo detects that an attachment is a picture - I suspect by the file extension... Could that point us somewhere?

    ok, this is the line that needs to be added to make the attachment player working:

    <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="audio-player.swf?audioUrl={xen:link attachments, $attachment}" width="400" height="27" allowscriptaccess="never" quality="best" bgcolor="#ffffff" wmode="window" flashvars="playerMode=embedded">

    the next step would be to write a condition
    if {$attachment.filename} contains *.mp3

    could someone help out with that?

    well, I know it's incorrect but maybe I will point someone in the right direction:

    <xen:if is="{$attachment.filename} == *.mp3 ">


    <xen:if is="{$attachment.extension} == mp3 ">

    Great news, there will be appropriate variable that will allow to write template modification that plays back MP3 attachments :)
    So as soon Beta 3 comes out I will post the attachment mp3 player template modification :)
    Darfuria and ArnyVee like this.
