HTML 5 audio tag not working in Firefox 6.0.2

Hi. I've set up a simple HTML 5 audio tag, and prepared MP3 and OGG files as the source audio. I use this simple code:

<audio controls="controls">  
<source src="PGTeaser-LongMix-Sept19.ogg" type="audio/ogg" preload="auto" />  
<source src="PGTeaser-LongMix-Sept19.mp3" type="audio/mp3" preload="auto" />  
Please update your web site browser. 
</audio>

Open in new window


It works great in MSIE 9, but not in FF 6.0.2. Please take a look:

Any ideas why this is not working in FF 6?

My client computer is Windows 7 64-bit.

Thank you for any advice.

what about this

<audio controls="controls">  
<source src="PGTeaser-LongMix-Sept19.mp3" type="audio/mp3" preload="auto" />  
Please update your web site browser.
</audio>

or

<audio controls="controls">  
<source src="PGTeaser-LongMix-Sept19.mp3" type="audio/mp3" preload="auto" />  
<source src="PGTeaser-LongMix-Sept19.ogg" type="audio/ogg" preload="auto" />  
Please update your web site browser.
</audio>

HainKurt, thanks for your notes.

>>>it says file is missing

Weird. I see the file with that exact filename in the correct directory.

I wonder if I encoded the OGG file in a way that FF will not read.

I did try those other <audio> options.

I'm gonna reencode this OGG file from the original MP3 and see what that does. I'll let you know what happens.

Thank you again. Hope you are well.

I know what I need to do. I need to tell IIS 7.0 how to serve the MIME type for OGG.

This was the clue that helped me. I needed to add mime type audio/ogg to IIS 7. Works like a charm now. Thanks, HainKurt! Take care.
