Hour 12. Tying Windows into the Web > Listening to Audio Content

Listening to Audio Content

Data is no longer limited to numbers and characters. Data consists of numbers and characters, but also audio, video, and graphics. Windows XP and the Internet both work well with all these types of data. As Internet access speed called bandwidth increases, more audio and video content will be delivered over the Internet to the user's browser.

You could listen to audio content from the Internet before Windows XP came along. With Windows XP, however, Internet Explorer's latest version now supports the playback and control of Internet audio from within Internet Explorer. Before Internet Explorer 6, the version supplied with Windows XP, if you clicked a link that produced audio, a separate program window would open and you would control the playback, pause, and volume level of that Internet content from the separate program window. Therefore, to hear audio, you'd have to control two windows: the browser window and the audio playback software.
