I'm using the built in Wordpress audio player with my own skin, I needed to set the default volume to 100 so I put this into `footer.php`

    <!--Change Wordpress Audio Player Default Volume-->
    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
        $("audio").mediaelementplayer({
            success: function (mediaElement, domObject) {
                mediaElement.setVolume(1.0);
            }
        });
    });
    </script>

Problem is I get the error `Uncaught TypeError: $(...).mediaelementplayer is not a function` on any page that doesn't have the [audio] shortcode because  the `wp-mediaelement.min.js` and `mediaelement-and-player.min.js` JS files aren't loading on the pages without the shortcode, this in turn breaks other javascript on those pages.

What are my options here? Having the default volume at max is a must. Is my code written wrong?
