Is any form of audio compression supported for HTML5 on playbook?

Hello everyone,

 

I am new here. I am just wondering if there's anyway to compress recorded audio file for HTML5. The only audio format playbook supports is WAV which may be a little big in size.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Hi cuixu66,

 

According to the HTML5Test attached there is AAC and MP3 support.

Thank you, Jeff.

Let me rephrase my question:

I am trying to use the microphone on the playbook to record some audio input

According to the following website:

https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackberry.media.microphone.html

The microphone recording on playbook only supports WAV format.

The WAV format is too big for me. Is there anyway to compress the WAV files after recording?

Thanks!
