Links to Audio files won't work (5 posts)

    hi,

    i'm publishing a website I designed using Dreamweaver. I uploaded everything to the server using Fetch, but none of my audio file links work. I've checked 100 times, and the files are there, in the folder specified when I created the links. I've tried recreating them - checking the location, etc and nothing works.

    is this a problem with mp4 files or is it something else?

    please let me know if anyone has any ideas as to what might be wrong.

    thanks!

    Hi esperanza157,

    Do the audio files play properly when you view the webpage locally on your Macintosh (using a browser, not Dreamweaver)?

    If you could give a link to the webpage, we will take a look and see if we have any suggestions.

    Thanks,

    hi,

    I found the problem. I replaced all my mp4 files with mp3's and updated the links to reflect that change - and all the links work.

    it seems mp4's don't work the same way when linked to... but I'm not sure why.

    Hi,

    esperanza157, glad to hear you're all set. I'm not sure why links to mp4 files would not work.

    I know that if you want QuickTime movies to appear and play inside your webpage, you need to use special HTML code to do that, and that may apply to mp4 files as well.

    But if you are simply linking to an mp4 file so that someone can download it or play it in a separate window, I wouldn't think you need to do that, but I admit I haven't tried.

    For information about embedding QuickTime in a webpage, see:

    Antonio, this advice may apply to you as well.

    Thanks,
