Audio Tab for "Product Settings" for Shopping Cart itemsAutor: German L.
So recently I suggested some new Styles for the Audio Player object that would hopefully be a better fit.
This time, I would actually like to suggest a TAB for the "Product Settings" section for Shopping Cart items.
While updating the Audio Player object would be a good update, it still sadly won't solve the issues that people would encounter when setting up a website to Sell Audio based products, whether music, sound effects or so on.
I tried today to play around more with the structure of the website, but sadly, it does not work due to the different mobile screen options that a person may view the site from.
Furthermore, I attempted to do HTML code within the Description portion in the "General" tab, and while that at first seemed like a decent option, I have had people who told me they cannot hear the audio on my website when doing it that way, I guess due to the HTML code vs browser setups now, so this option has also failed me as a hope to what I need to do.
This has led me to suggesting an "Audio" tab setup instead.
Currently, the "Product Settings" tab in Shopping Cart items has the following tabs:
General, Image, Options, Digital Product, Discount, and Availability.
I am suggesting for there to be an "Audio" tab in between Image and Options, where this would allow us to select an Audio file (whether MP3 or WAV or OGG file) to upload. This would then in turn appear as a special Play Button on the actual Shopping Cart item, where a person can see the small Play Button and play the audio file related to the item being sold. This button would appear in a clearly available place so that a customer would see the play button, regardless of the Responsive site dimensions.
I know that this would probably require special coding and programming to make it possible, but there are unfortunately no other workarounds that I can do that would be user friendly to a person shopping for music on the website. Therefore, being able to create this special implementation for those of us who create music websites would potentially open up more customers buying Website X5 if you can create X5 Pro to be more user friendly for those of us creating websites to sell music on.
I LOVE the website templates and designs that X5 has. However, for those of us selling music, it is not helpful at all or compatible, as certain coding doesn't work for us by trying workarounds, and when using the Audio Player side by side with a "Shopping Cart" setup, the Responsive Design distorts the entire shop layout so it doesn't make sense at all to a customer.
The ONLY way that this would work and be user friendly to a customer is if there is an actual HTML5 Audio Player object directly on the Shopping Cart product card that would load and play the file we upload via the "Audio" tab in "Product Settings" if that can be created, even if it is a simple Small Play button that allows the customer to press the play button to start the audio, and play it again to stop it.
One other thing with the coding would be that it should incorporate coding where if there are multiple Product Cards on a page, and one play button is pressed, it will silence the others, and if another is pressed, it silences all others so that only one audio is playing at a time.
I wish there was a way for me to send an image to explain my suggestions. However, I hope that this detailed suggestion will help a bit. You are welcome to email me at *** if you need further discussion. I hope that this can be something strongly considered for X5. Thank you for your time with this matter.
Hello. I sent a notification about your idea to the company employees, expect an answer from them here in the comments.

I confirm I have reported your suggestion so it can be taken into consideration.
Thanks! Kind regards.
