Anarchy Media Player

As you might already know, Anarchy Media Player is a way cool javascript-based player solution for playback of media files like .mp3, quicktime movies, flash movies and so on. The very cool thing about that is, all you have to do is to include the anarchy player javascript file into your html document and each and every link to a file ending with .mp3, .mov, .wmv, .flv, … will be magically converted into a media player (thanks to the HTML DOM and javascript 😉 ).

I use the 1.6.5 version and found that when you add a class with “amplink” to your link, the media player will ignore this link! This comes handy if you want to explicitly put a link to a movie file for which you don’t want the mediaplayer magic to happen. Imagine you have a link to a flash video and two links for quicktime movies in high and low quality for download. The link to the .flv should be converted into a media player, the two quicktime links should be left intact – just put a “amplink” class on the two quicktime links and you’re set!
