I have added an audio file to one of my pages, to play online with Windows Media Player 11. The file plays in IExplorer 7 and Google Chrome browsers, but does not load in Firefox 3.0.3 nor Opera ver 9.63. Any ideas as to what is wrong? The page in question is at: http://www.lightthefireministries.org.za/vision.html

Hi StephanusvS
You probably need to the plug ins... for your Firefox and Opera..
In Firefox go to tools... via add ons
Hope That helps... Doug

Hi, Doug is quite right. Might also be worth trying another form of player to help with the x browser quirks.

Hi Chris,

I see that BlueVoda also offers Real Player and Quicktime to use for this purpose. Which one would you recommend? I thought choosing Windows Media Player would limit the possibility of having to download a plugin, since I assumed it is the most widely used? I updated my player to Media Player 11 and when using 10 it worked fine. Is the file played by what ever version of Media Payer the viewer has? Any way of circumventing the necessity of downloading plugins?

Thanks
