HTML 5 audio problems

  • # March 27, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    I am far from experienced but i am attempting to create an online radio station. I have managed to use the html 5 audio player but it only works on safari. on chrome it shows the player but does not function and on firefox the player is not there at all. Is there some code that will correct this???

    Help Please :)

    you need to make sure you include both types of media (mp3 and ogg). I’d suggest using a plugin or something that is already designed to handle stuff like that.

    If you need to convert audio files, http://media.io/ is pretty good with that.

    Also keep in mind that (I’m pretty sure about this) Firefox doesn’t support MP3 as an audio format for HTML5.

    Yea i believe firefox ONLY supports ogg file format. Check this out: http://slides.html5rocks.com/#video-audio

    Since you are streaming you doing this stuff back-end?
