View Full Version : Sound Loop Problem

01-26-2005, 08:19 PM
Hi all,

I've got a problem with a script.
The script plays a sound on mouse over and stops the sound on mouse out.
I want the sound to be looped, but I can't get it to work.

Here's the script:

<script LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
// Preload and play audio files with event handler (MouseOver sound)
// designed by JavaScript Archive, (c)1999
// Get more free javascripts at http://jsarchive.8m.com

var aySound = new Array();
// Below: source for sound files to be preloaded
aySound[0] = "laser.wav";

// DO NOT edit below this line
document.write('<BGSOUND ID="auIEContainer">')
IE = (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE")!=-1 && document.all)? 1:0;
NS = (navigator.appName=="Netscape" && navigator.plugins["LiveAudio"])? 1:0;
ver4 = IE||NS? 1:0;

function auPreload() {
if (!ver4) return;
if (NS) auEmb = new Layer(0,window);
else {
Str = "<DIV ID='auEmb' STYLE='position:absolute;'></DIV>";
var Str = '';
for (i=0;i<aySound.length;i++)
Str += "<EMBED SRC='"+aySound[i]+"' AUTOSTART='FALSE' HIDDEN='TRUE'>"
if (IE) auEmb.innerHTML = Str;
else {
auCon = IE? document.all.auIEContainer:auEmb;
auCon.control = auCtrl;
function auCtrl(whSound,play) {
if (IE) this.src = play? aySound[whSound]:'';
else eval("this.document.embeds[whSound]." + (play? "play()":"stop()"))
function playSound(whSound) { if (window.auCon) auCon.control(whSound,true); }
function stopSound(whSound) { if (window.auCon) auCon.control(whSound,false); }

Any ideas?

Warm Regards,

Sound has a loop attribute... use that...
But it has been so long that I have used it I have forgotten what the infinite value is but if you want it to loop three times it would be: loop="3"...
