Using Sound Files

Sound files come in more flavors than ice cream (see the sidebar, Sound File Types). Not all browsers support all sound files, but any browser that supports plug-ins or ActiveX (Navigator or Explorer versions 2 or later) should be able to play most sound files. Navigator 3 or later's pre-installed LiveAudio plug-in plays nearly every common sound file type.

There are two ways to add a sound file to your page. One way is to link to the sound file, so that the user downloads and plays it when clicking on the link. The other way is to embed the sound file so that it begins to load when the page loads, and a plug-in will play it automatically when the sound file finishes loading.
