hi,
I have a problem and didn't find much info on it, maybe you can help, hopefully.
I created a very simple web page that uses HTML5's audio tag and I want it to play ogg file with flac codec.
I have several ogg files but the browser don't want to play any of them.
My question is does FireFox support this combo of ogg file with flac codec ?
Do I need to add attribute to the tag himself?
Where can I find more info on this subject?
Thanks,
Shirly

Hello,

OGG files must use the Vorbis codec for audio and the Theora codec for video (if applicable).
