A quick question to you all regarding XHTML audio cross browser streaming.
Do you know if there are any plans by W3C to implement some kind of solution to the above?
Before anybody admonishes me for using audio, I am well aware that it is not a good idea to overdo this for many reasons. My site has a little audio where appropriate.
To stream audio from a website I use the embed and object tags for all the modern browsers but this is not xhtml compliant.
I would be grateful for any replies.
This is the (latest) code I'm using to put streaming flash audio on my site....
<object data="../mplayer/audio.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
<span>It appears you do not have the <a class="external" href="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" rel="external" title="Flash Plugin">Flash</a> plugin installed is required for this presentation.</span>
<param name="movie" value="../mplayer/audio.swf" />
Flash is the best way to stream audio in my opinion especially since it is the most (or at least one of the most) supported plugins around the world.
