CGI generates HTML with EMBED for AUDIO problem
Posted on 1999-07-10
A CGI/Perl scripts generates HTML and sends it back to the browser via a "Content-type: text/html"
The html contains a:
<embed src="file.mid" width=16 height=16
hidden="false" autostart="true" volume=100 loop="true" nosave="true">
The embed is correctly recognised and audio played by most browsers.
However some and in particular the AOL browsers do not produce any sound.
If the same HTML is written to the server's file store and a "Location: URL" is used instead of the "Content-type: text/html" then it works, prooving that it was not a particular plug-in fault.
Any ideas why sound is sometimes not audible when in "Content-type: text/html" rather than "Location: URL" mode?
