Solved Background sound not working with Firefox

Post by cougar30 on August 21st 2010, 3:34 pm

Hi all,

I have a problem where I have inserted some HTML into my forum to play a background MP3. It works fine in IE, but doesn't seem to work in Firefox. Is this a code issue? If so can someone please point me in the right direction?

Many Thanks

Andy

the html code for the music.

also do you have the player visible or is it invisible and just playing in the background.
if this is the case you will have to change your dimensions of the player from zero to one.

if you are not sure what i mean then please post you code so i can have a look it may not be what i am thinking either so i will just have to test it out for you then let you know how to fix it.

Please do not double post back to back withing a 24 hour period.
next time just wait for a reply or add any new content to your previous post via the edit button.

Um i am testing the code now. i had something come on then my quick time popped up and said it had to be updated and my whole screen froze and i cant close it out.. so i am waiting for that.. then i will try it again to see whats up with it.

be back in a few min to let you know.

info added

well i cant seem to get the link to play on any player?
you will have to upload the mp3 it to something like pod bean.
it's free to join and you can create play list or just do single songs/sounds

so then you just take out the pod bean link and adds out of the code and change the dimensions to 1.. so it will appare as a real tiny dot that you can not realy see and will play on all browsers.. be sure to set the auto play.. and if you have any problems adjusting the code just past it here and i can do it for you real fast.

Thanks Podbean worked a treat. Not sure why it didn't work where I uploaded it to previously on Firefox and only on IE?
