Player Controls & Info to Display
On the Player tab of the widget's configurator, you can select which controls and tracks info will show in the widget:
Let's explore what you can do in this section. Here's a breakdown of what they control:
You can either show those control or hide them, judging by whether you'd like your users to control the widget or not.
The following controls allow your website visitors to interact with the following elements:
- Track Controls — play and switch between tracks
- Volume — adjust the volume level
- Playlist — show or hide the playlist
- Loop — play tracks in the player multiple times
- Shuffle — randomly change the order of the tracks
- Progress Bar — see the time elapsed and the time remaining for the track that is currently playing, and navigate through the track
Player Info to Display
Here, you can select which additional info on the track you'd like to show:
- Image — the track's cover
- Title — the track's name
- Artist — the track's author
Next, you can set the way how exactly the tracks will be played within the widget.
Here's how you can adjust the player's settings:

- Shuffle by Default — the order of tracks will be randomized.
- Volume by Default — set the volume level that will be used the first time someone sees the widget.
- Repeat by Default — select whether the Loop option will be enabled by default
- Autoplay — the widget will begin playing tracks as soon as someone interacts with your website
In the Playlist section, you can customize how the widget's playlist will display.
