Enabling Preview and Player

To allow previewing files before downloading, you need to configure it in plugin settings.

1) Find the option "Preview support mode". You can disable it for all downloads, enable for downloads, or allow to choose it while creating or editing the download.

2) If you want to display the audio player, you need to find the option "Player support mode" - it has the same settings as for in the previous step.

Another option "Choose which audio player should be shown" offers you a few different audio players which you can use on your site.

3) One more option allows you to choose, which users are allowed to use the preview option and use media player.

Upload Page

If you choose "customizable for each download" when enabling the preview and player options, the corresponding options will appear in the upload form. The options are: "Enable Preview" for images and documents, and the button "Enable Media Player" for audio and video.
