    playing sound file in Netscape and Firefox using "native" media player???

    I have a web page with links to sound clips (mpegs), that when clicked, I want the "native media player" to come up and play. This works as it should in Internet Explorer, the link is clicked and the media player comes up over the web page and plays the file, in Netscape and Firefox, when the link is clicked, the browser goes to a new page with nothing on it but a little player which then plays the clip.

    Is there a way to have Netscape and Firefox also just call on the computers own media player to play the clip as happens in Internet Explorer???

    Much Thanks,

    David

    Unfortunately, there are major differences in the way the browsers play media files. What's the URL? Are you using the embed tag?

    Chris,


    The page isn't up yet, I noticed the problem while previewing in Firefox/Netscape from Dreamweaver.

    I did't use an embed tag, just linked an image to the sound file.

    I'm not really certain if what you want to do is even possible.

    Put it in an object tag? Or an iFrame, perhaps?

    That's the only thing I can think of that MIGHT work.
