Sounding Off: Playing Sounds in Windows 98

You'll find that playing sounds in Windows 98 is straightforward. In most cases, you use one of the following methods:

  • Many CD-ROM applications have their own audio players built in, so you can play audio clips right from the application.

  • To play sound clips not supported by Windows 98, you need to install a third-party player.

  • For WAV files, the default application is Sound Recorder (select Start | Programs | Accessories | Entertainment | Sound Recorder). In the Sound Recorder window that appears, select File | Open to open the WAV file you want to hear. Now click the Play button (see Figure 25.2).

    Figure 25.2. You can use the Sound Recorder accessory to play WAV files.


  • For WAV and MIDI files, you can use the Media Player (select Start | Programs | Accessories | Entertainment | Media Player). In the Media Player window, select Device | Sound or Device MIDI Sequencer.

  • For all other sound files, open the file and Windows 98 will run the ActiveMovie control. See Chapter 24 to learn how to work with the ActiveMovie control.
