View Full Version : Playing a sound file

I would like to play a .wav sound file when someone hovers their mouse/pointer over an image. Could someone help me out here please. I am running a Linux OS. Thanks.

<img src = "yourImage.jpg" onmouseover ="document.embeds['musicfile'].play()" onmouseout = "document.embeds['musicfile'].stop()">

<embed src="yourMusicFile.wav" name="musicfile" hidden="true" autostart="false"></embed>

This works in IE but an additional plug-in Apple Quicktime is required for Firefox.

I am not running any version/flavour of Internet Explorer only Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and Linux Mint 8 (Helena). No matter what i've tried so far i still can't get a sound out of Firefox. Although when the webpage is opened using either Opera 10.10 or Konqueror 4.3.2 the sound file plays immediately?

Would like to say a big thanks to Phillip M for the help!
