Audio player widget settings for Elementor

The Audio player widget can use self-hosted files or external links in the Audier plugin. Each player control can be configured and ordered according to your requirements and wishes using straightforward layout settings. The playlist has advanced settings that allow you to use an individual file source for each item, as well as add a title, description and image thumbnail.
