        Firefox and the Wizard of Ogg

        by Saul Edmonds

        “Rubiks Lodge” by G.LAudio, Firefox and HTML5.

        One of the positive features of HTML5 is a simpler system for adding audio to your web page or blog.

        No longer is flash, quicktime or WMP required. With HTML5, audio is directly embedded into the web page : no third party plug-ins or javascript needed.

        Adding an audio file is now as easy as adding an image.

        Who or What is Ogg Vorbis?

        Firefox, however, will not play MP3s. Firefox requires all audio files to be converted to the .ogg format. The Ogg Vorbis digital audio compression format is similar to MP3. It is considered to be superior to MP3 in that encoding into .ogg produces effectively smaller file sizes of higher sound quality. Additionally, the .ogg format is patent and royalty free.

        Get with Started with Audio in Firefox

        HTML5 audio is pretty simple. Follow these steps to get started in Firefox:

        1. As Firefox 3.6 will only support .ogg, all MP3s will need to be converted. Switch Audio File Converter Software is one example of an easy to use multi format audio file converter for PC and Mac. A basic version is available for free download
        2. Embed the audio tag in your code.
        3. <audio id=”player”></audio>
        4. Provide the source audio file:
        5. <source src=”audio.ogg”/>
        6. Play Sound
        7. You could autoplay the audio on load with a simple attribute autoplay like this:
        8. <audio id=”player” src=”audio.ogg” autoplay></audio>

        Simple play and stop functions could be assigned as onclick event of buttons as follows:

        • To the play() function of the audio object:
        • http://document.getElementById(“player”).play();
        • To stop/ pause playing audio:
        • http://document.getElementById(“player”).pause();
        • Firefox has announced that it will continue to support only the .ogg format due to it being a patent and royalty free codec. As HTML5 is implemented we will undoubtedly become familiar to .ogg as an alternative MP3.

          10 Fantastic Flash Websites with Great Sound Design

          by Saul Edmonds

          Despite the SJF (Steve Jobs Factor), Flash remains an incredible medium for media rich expression. There is plenty of amazing work out there that utilizes Flash despite a lack of support on iPhone and iPad. Remember : it is still recommended to include Flash options when developing web media content (as a fallback for the vast number of people whose browsers cannot use HTML5 yet).

          In the lead-up to the release of Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Chief Technology Officer Kevin Lynch stated they will deliver Flash “to smartphones for all but one of the top manufacturers.

          From August 17 2010, Flash Player 10.1 is available for download on the Android Market for Google Nexus One phones. Among the mobile operating systems that should receive support for Flash in the near future are BlackBerry, MeeGo and LiMo, as well as future version of Windows Phone 7. A wide range of new mobile phones should arrive with full Flash pre-installed on them.

          And so, without further ado, please find below 10 beautiful Flash sites that utilize audio in innovative and inspired ways.

          We intend to make this and similiar lists a regular feature. If you have seen any flash sites with great audio - let us know.We love creative stuff.

          ps. our original flash site for the sound / music component of what we do isn’t too bad either
