[Resolved] Firefox compatibility
My playlists work ok with IE and Chrome but when I click the play button in Firefox 17.0.1 , the mp3 doesn’t respond.
Looking back through this forum I see that I should try and update the MIME types. However, I am not sure of the syntax for adding the following to web.config (my server doesn’t support .htaccess)
AddType audio/ogg ogg
AddType audio/ogg oga
AddType video/ogg ogv
AddType video/mp4 m4v
Very common firefox issue – see FAQs about mime types.
If you can’t add/edit htaccess via FTP then I’d suggest you contact your web host or server administrator for further assistance. Explain the issue and I’m sure they’ll be able to help you get these mime types sorted out.
I’m on IIS 7 server so I added the parameters to web.config. This didn’t help.
I then asked my ISP to add the MIME types directly. They did this for me and it’s still not working.
The player shows up as normal. when you click the play button, nothing happens.
Any other ideas?
Do you think it could be the way I encoded the ogg audio file?
Are there any recommended settings?
What program did you use to convert to ogg?
And does the ogg file play in firefox without the player? ie. right click the ogg file on your PC then click open with Firefox…
Also are you able to please post a link here so I can check it out?
Here’s the link – I’m using Adobe Audition to convert the files. I’ll do the checking now.
I have to put the site back behind a placekeeper. I can PM you the login details if you like.
I uploaded WordPress 3.5 to a new folder, left the theme as the WP default and the only plugin I added was the player. The song still doesn’t play. I’ll contact my ISP to double check they correctly installed the MIME types..
Here is the link
Response from my isp
The MIME type has been added and the HTTP header shows that the web server is
serving the files with the right MIME type as shown below.
HTTP Response Header Value
Status: HTTP/1.1 200 OK

All working now. My ISP made a mistake when updating the MIME types.
Thanx for a fantastic app 🙂
Great! Thanks for reporting back netgrrl2. Glad it was the old MIME type issue and not something weird and new!
If you like the plugin please do give it a nice rating –>
I spoke too soon, the problem has returned… If you want to have a look at the page, let me know and I’ll remove the placekeeper page 🙁
lol – frkn web central – it was the MIME types again. Don’t know how they managed to undo the settings..
