Most Wanted WordPress Plugins Pack

The "Most Wanted WordPress Plugins Pack" is a collection of WordPress plugins that includes premium sliders, logo showcase, full-screen images, video backgrounds, image and video galleries, audio players, video players, radio players, carousels, countdowns, multimedia accordion, event calendar, and Christmas cards.

After receiving the design, I took charge of the plugins' full-stack programming.

Hero - Shoutcast and Icecast Radio Player with History | WordPress Plugin

https://codecanyon.net/item/hero-shoutcast-and-icecast-radio-player-with-history-wordpress-plugin/19364283
A premium HTML5 radio player with support for ShoutCast, IceCast, AzuraCast, and RadioJar streams. Because of its high quality, it was featured on the CodeCanyon market as the top WordPress radio player plugin.

The player integrates the audio DB API to display the artist's image, ensuring they're displayed at a high resolution. To cover all clients' needs, I've additionally built the Elementor Widget and WPBakery Addon.

This player only uses JavaScript to read the current playing song and the history. By that means, it will have no restrictions from the servers. A PHP solution might need the radio PORT opened if the radio PORT is not the standard 80 or 443. I also have experience with radio players using PHP, like this one: codecanyon.net/item/shout-html5-radio-player-with-ads-shoutcast-and-icecast-support-wordpress-plugin/20667135.

Universal Video Player | WordPress Plugin

https://codecanyon.net/item/universal-video-player-wordpress-plugin/9683312
The Universal Video Player supports YouTube, Vimeo, and self-hosted videos. It's a top-notch responsive HTML5 plugin compatible with all major browsers and mobile devices.

For YouTube videos, all that is needed is the YouTube video ID. The plugin will get the other necessary information from the YouTube server using the YouTube API.

To cover all clients' needs, I've also built the Elementor Widget and WPBakery Addon.

Custom Website with Custom Theme

A website where a custom WordPress theme was created to handle the front-end and back-end development. The client has full control of all the website information, and with just a few clicks, he can modify the content of the pages, header or footer menus, and social channels and manage the offer requests.
