Playlist Panel – Finally WavePlayer adds a visible list of all tracks incorporated in one go. The administrator can configure the buttons and info with ease on each row.
Peak Files – Audio tracks are analyzed just after being uploaded to Media Library. Hence, there is no need to wait to render waveform while using the track for the first time, which is very helpful for very large files. In addition, Maintenance section is well renovated which enables users to manage peak files with ease.
More Efficient and Quick – All player instances are loaded at the same time in one page. So, it cuts the load time to a great extent and it makes interaction with server a lot quicker and efficient. For instance, if there are 10 instances on one page, the older WavePlayer version sent 10 calls and playlist of each instance has been achieved at a time.
WavePlayer 2.1 analyzes existing page and sends it a single request to the server for all the instances on a page. This way, the interaction becomes even more efficient on the server and it cuts the page load time significantly. Starting from v2.1, it creates only one Audio Element in each page. So, load time is even faster and improves efficiency of memory management.

With the new playlist panel, now you can customize the details appeared on both playlist rows and Info Bar. It has expanded the number of placeholders to customize. Now webmasters can customize both the playlist and Info Bar by adding stats and buttons for the most common tools, such as social shares, likes, play counts, download, and runtime. The system is very flexible and simple, so you can decide what to show.
