Hi. I have a website which display numerous audio outputs using the HTML5 tag <audio>. Firefox is the only browser that fails to display all the audio files on the webpage.

It only displays the first audio file. All other browsers display every audio file......?

Chosen solution

The file doesn't get played for me, so it is possible that you need to recode the ogg files to make them compatible with Firefox.
I can make them play with MPlayer and VLC on Linux, but not with the audio player in Firefox.

There is currently no code with an audio tag with working files on that page, so I can't check what the server sends or what otherwise is wrong.
If you do have a page with an ogg file or other file that is uploaded to the server then I can check if it works.

Hi, I had the audio files generated out in a php section of code. I've put it in with normal HTML now. So it should be viewable in the view source...

Thanks for checking again. Yeh it seems to be ok now, and thanks for the suggestions. I think the problem was with the audio file itself, as I converted .mp3 into other file types and hadn't converted them correctly. Firefox was not at fault.
