    Inserting streaming audio files

    I just got Microsoft Media Encoder and encoded an mp3 file into a .wme. I then inserted the following (based on instructions in a magazine) Title of the Song into the index.html file. When I previewed in a browser, no music played, but some HTML code appeared some of which was the info from setting up the original .wme file.
    What I want to have happen is for the file to start streaming the song when the index.html page is opened. Not having much luck looking through the MS documenation (suprise, suprise).

    Try, in the Head:

    <bgsound src="songtitle.wme" loop="1">

    where songtitle.wme is the file you want played.

    (Certainly works here with .wav files.)

    Re: Inserting streaming audio files

    I tried that on both my server (which I doesn't support MS Media Encoder) and on my PC, where I've installed the encoder and it didn't work in either place. I tried preview in browser on my PC and nothing happens. I read somewhere that FP doesn't really support streaming audio/video yet, but that you should be able to insert same.

    Just a thought - and I haven't played around with streaming audio/video yet so take it with a grain of salt.
    I don't think the problem is FP, after all what FP is doing is writing the HTML for you. I believe you need to do something on the server end to support delivering streaming audio/video. Or else why all the big deal about media servers?

    Sounds like a good time to prowl the web for a site that works and look at its code. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
