HTML5 browser-based media player: plays your mp3′s & works offline

Filed under
Software

“Yawn – yet another music player?” might be your first reaction at the sight of yet-another media player gracing the pages of OMG! Ubuntu, but this one is actually rather special.

The HTML5-written media player runs in the browser (so what?) but is designed to play back your local media (oooh!): your entire music library can be added and played through it (super neat).

The player can even be saved and used ‘offline’ – just hit CTRL+S and move the resulting files somewhere safe. Then open the ‘MP3 player.html’ file in a browser of your choice.
