Play sound directly on the board

Hello people!
I’am using this amazing software but I need to ask if there’s a plugin or config to enable the possibility of playing a sound directly. I have som tasks with sounds attached to it and when I need to play the sound I need to download it. Can we enable in browser player ?

May be you should be a little bit more specific? What exactly is your need?

  • Notification sounds?
  • Complete radio play can be played in an audio player in the task view?
  • You only need a possibility to play a sound attachment in Browser without download?

Here in this KANBOARD Task you can play the audio file attached to that task directly in the Browser without download before.

My Configuration:

  • Application version: 1.2.22
  • PHP version: 7.4.28
  • PHP SAPI: fpm-fcgi
  • HTTP Client: cURL
  • OS version: Linux 4.15.0-177-generic (on Server at
  • Database driver: mysql
  • Database version: 5.7.37-nmm1-log
  • Browser: SeaMonkey (User String: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0)

Lol, not a ‘complete radio play’, but just a file I added when the customer tell me something usefull. It’s a .ogg file. When I open the box it’s shows the images file as images and when I click on the sound file it try to download it.
I’m using firefox as browser and hostgator to host my kanboard.

Would a solution like in my KANBOARD Task also fit your needs?

Do you mean something like this?

Task view

Within the board


looks better and is more intuitive than opening in player in new window.
What’s the trick?

Requires some tinkering.

  • Install the MarkdownPlus plugin.
  • Add the sound file as an attachment to the task, or somewhere else.
  • Insert some code in into the description, adjust src and type according to your needs.
<audio controls>
<source src="<download path of attachment>" type="audio/ogg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.

Unfortunately Audio Player does not work for users who came via public link. Click on “Play”-Icon does nothing. Same with FF, SeaMonkey, Chromium.

Related to “How can I see all attached image files (photos) of a project”?

I’m afraid installation at will be far beyond my skills. can you help a little?

Perfect this is exactly what I nedeed.

I know that. But the OP requested a solution for authenticated users.
For the public, it only works in the task view.

EDIT: It really doesn’t work at all without a login. :grimacing:

In kanboard, there is a page Plugin Directory. If you cannot install if from there, you have to pick it from github, put it onto your webspace (FTP?), and expand the zipped plugin into kanboards plugin directory.

In case you need more assistance, we can continue in IRC.

That was my assumption. I will try next days.

I was suspicious,did it instantly.

Tha Plugin seems to work, I tested some functions.


<audio controls>
<source src="<>" type="audio/ogg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.

only shows the player, but click on "Play"does nothing.

Try action=download. It works for me.

Sorry, I haven’t seen this before. You must remove the angle brackets (’<>’) around the src.URL.

`<source src="<https://tic...`
`source src="<https://tic...`

Me to :disappointed_relieved:
We urgently need a law to use different angle brackets

‹please replace contents› 

to be distinguishable from



And BTW:
after having removed the “‹” “›” brackets


and also


work fine for me.

Is there some kind of “KANBOARD tips and tricks” where we can leave this and may be other useful hints?

might be an appropriate place for tricks with that plugin. But mostly questions will come before someone knows the appropriate plugin. Like here.
