I have just come across jPlayer.

I want to create an ipad webapp which has 6 different audio clips on one page.

The iPads will be locked in holders so the user wont be able to get to the ipad volume buttons and the webapp will be locked in guided access mode.

I want to have 1 master volume on the page.

Can this be done? Either using the jPlayer or some ipad webapp code.

Any Advice?

The jPlayer has a volume method:

   $('#jquery_jplayer_1').jPlayer("volume", volume);

You just need to set the volume of each instance of your player.
$(document).ready(function () {
    $("#slider").slider({
        max: 100,
        min: 1,
        step: 1,
        change: function (event, ui) {
            volume = ui.value / 100;
            $('#jquery_jplayer_1').jPlayer("volume", volume);
            $('#jquery_jplayer_2').jPlayer("volume", volume);
        }
    });
    $("#jquery_jplayer_1").jPlayer({
        ready: function (event) {
            $(this).jPlayer("setMedia", {
                mp3: "http://www.mostlywrong.info/2.mp3",
            });
        },
        swfPath: "http: //jplayer.org/latest/js",
        supplied: "mp3"
    });
    $("#jquery_jplayer_2").jPlayer({
        cssSelectorAncestor: "#jp_container_2",
        ready: function (event) {
            $(this).jPlayer("setMedia", {
                mp3: "http://www.mostlywrong.info/1.mp3",
            });
        },
        swfPath: "http: //jplayer.org/latest/js",
        supplied: "mp3"
    });

});

Open in new window


Here's an example fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/7V86t/3/  -- use the master volume slider and it will adjust the volume for both players.

Thanks for the solution! Works perfectly in Safari!

I am trying to get it working on an iPad in mobile safari but the volume command doesn't work.
I have added the jQuery UI Touch Punch jQuery script which makes jQuery UI work on an iPad.  I can verify the slider is working by adding an alert on change.

Do you have any idea? Is this anything you could help with?

Googling around a bit and found this:

It appears that the iPad doesn't allow you to change the volume from a webpage.  One guy is resorting to sampling things at different volume levels and switching the source if it's an iPad.  I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately as it stands now it doesn't look like you'll be able to control the volume through a web app.
