Audio Embedding Options
Firstly, great site, i've learnt so much over the last few months. I have been going hard at my first site, it's not a hard-sell pushy site, it packed full of useful lessons and information and I plan to grow a list over time with this one.
Anyway, I am unable to embed audio in my webpages, I am using DreamWeaver and I have used the plugins tool to embed audio following various online tuts and when viewing the page nothing plays. I thought this was a plugin issue with my browsers but other websites audio works for me.
So i have searched long and hard to fix this but have got no where. Here's what i have resorted to.. I am loading the audio files into windows movie maker and saving them as WMV movie files with black backgrounds, i am then uploading them to youtube and using their embed link i have put them on my website. I have actually resized the videos so that only the play buttom and scrub bar is visible. The video files themselves seem to be smaller file-size to the audio which amazes me..
I want to know whether anyone else does this or if there may be a better way. Maybe this way is completly fine?? I'd love to hear from you. - Everything else on the site is in place im just struggling with the audio.
