Script Summary: Shows a player (google player for MP3 or audio tag for other formats) to preview audio files at Google Docs.
Since there is no preview for audio files in Google Docs by default, you need to use a user script to avoid having to download files and open in a separate program. With this script, an audio file can be played directly from the page. The latest version is now compatible with the new version of Google Docs, as well as working in Chrome.
- Preview mp3 files uploaded to Google Docs with the inline player from Gmail
- Other formats (WAV, OGG) using HTML5 audio tag
Hopefully this will be rendered unnecessary by Google adding this functionality to the new Google Docs. Discussion here:
The player selection is based on the filename extension. Patches are welcome (apologies to Luciano for not incorporating his changes sooner).
