Misc: KL MediaPlayer Syntax (linking to specific files)

When writing articles, you may wish to link to various audio and video files in the KL Media Player. The basic link is:


…which opens a page with the Media Player showing all files, and starts playing the first one. However, this can be scripted with query strings to show only certain types of files, certain channels (categories of files), play a selected one, etc. This article tells you how to do it.

Setting up combinations of parameters with a query string

There are three different variables that can be passed in a query string following the '?' :
channel (ch), media type (mt), and play id (playID). They can be used alone, or in combinations.

Variable: ch Channel (note: case insensitive)

chem3 Chemistry 3 Sound Set demos

5 audio files (mp3)
Variable: playID a unique id for each media file

Examples: Play ID

Inside the KL MediaPlayer, click on any file. In the "Now Playing" area, if you click the small "i" (info) button, it will show more detailed info under the title, including an "ID". You can use this ID to bring up the MP with a specific file ready to start playing, like this:
