Chapter 16. Building on jQuery > Using jQuery Plugins

Using jQuery Plugins

As noted earlier, developers have created jQuery plugins to extend jQuery’s core functionality in many different directions. There are far too many plugins for us to discuss in this book, so we’ll use this one example to show off the power of jQuery plugins.

In this example, you’ll see how to use a jQuery plugin to implement a full-featured audio player that takes advantage of the HTML5 audio tag, with a Flash fallback for browsers that don’t support HTML5. When the page loads, there are just a couple of small buttons , but press Play and it expands to show all its features .
