    HTML5 Audio Tag and IE9 - Audio only plays for a second

    I have a website i am setting up for a friend using HTML5 with Flash fallback, im trying to get it to play an audio file and a video file. It works fine in most browsers but IE9 is being a ****.

    The audio plays for a second and stops and i cant work out why. The code is included below and you can see the page for yourself over here : http://bit.ly/t1fCIM

    Video works fine.

    Has anyone any ideas here?

    Not sure about the IE9 thing, but it crashed my browser (chrome on XP). :-(

    Nice looking animation though!
