websites with embeded sound

Posted

the web site I visited has sound enbeded in it the site was bulit with front page

Chosen solution

hello, it doesn't work on other browsers like chrome either. front page is known to produce code that isn't standard compliant & most probably will always work well with IE only. in this case a <bgsound> element is used, but this isn't valid html and non-IE browsers can't deal with that...

Did this work before? Are your plugins up to date?

Please check if all your plugins are up-to-date. To do this, go to the Mozilla Plugin Check site.

Once you're there, the site will check if all your plugins have the latest versions. If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.

To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.

I looked at it a little more and can confirm that it doesn't work on Chrome as well. Please contact the webmaster of the page. As per the bug I filed, I will mark it as invalid.

That page uses BGSOUND and that doesn't work in Firefox.

<bgsound src="whitesat.mid" loop="1">

Something like this should work in Firefox:

<embed src="whitesat.mid" type="audio/midi">
