UPDATE: July 1, 2013 Just like Yahoo! MediaPlayer, this plugin has also mysteriously disappeared. However, you can get something just like it (better, IMHO), called PressPlay Lite, which is now available on Wordpress.org. ORIGINAL POST: Not shown. As easy to setup as Yahoo! Media Player...

XSPF Player Solutions

Although it is Flash-based, I have found xspf_player.swf to be one of the most versatile mp3 players out there. It may not be the easiest to set up, but once it's in place, you are rewarded with total control. Its parameters include, background-color, text-color, autoplay, autoload, shuffle, and much more. Plus, it supports multiple playlists [...]
