The Soundslice player JavaScript API

The Soundslice player’s JavaScript API lets you control our player from within your own web page. For example, you can use this to:

  • Provide your own UI for play/pause
  • Roll your own analytics on which moments are being practiced the most
  • Modify sheet music on the fly, given your users’ preferences

For performance reasons, our player’s API isn’t active by default. To activate it, add the URL parameter api=1 to your iframe, like this:

<iframe src="" ...>

You’ll also probably want to add an id attribute to the <iframe>, so that your own JavaScript can reference it. For example:

<iframe id="ssembed" ...>

You can then get a reference to the <iframe> like so:

var ssiframe = document.getElementById('ssembed').contentWindow;

We use the standard postMessage API. In each case, JavaScript code from your own page (the parent page) calls postMessage() on the iframe’s contentWindow attribute, passing a serialized JSON object with a method key. In some cases, there’s an additional arg key.

Note that the postMessage() calls require you to pass the proper target origin parameter, which is "", to avoid cross-site scripting attacks.
