Hi Developer Community,
I have been developing few web pages with embedded audio in IE 9.
these are .m4a files from itunes. each file is generally 3.3MB !
which is not a realistic files size but anyways...
this white bar loads at the bottom of the page and asks
would I like to open this file...
in windows vista and IE 9 this opens itunes outside IE 9 and plays the song and clouds my screen with itunes
itunes is the primary player for this file type...
If you have been developing this... which file format did you apply to the embeded object?
Has the <audio> tag been working for you? If yes, which file format for the audio did you use?
if you can answer this: How can I program around the allow activeX controls button to not query the user/visitor?

when asking questions in this forum for questions about html, css and scripting it is helpful if you can provide a link to your website or at the least copy and paste your markup/scripts/css using the code insert tool on the Edit box toolbar.
IE9 supports the html5 <audio> and <video> tags... you need to be using the (x)html5 dtd. You will find links to documentation here - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/ which is at the top of this forum......
see Home, Docs, Samples, Communtiy
for msie browsers you use either an <audio> or <object> tags with an <embed> fallback for other browsers.... see documenttion links above or visit your favorite music website (not apple) and see View>Source
