How to play mp3 in tablet simulator

I want to embed sound to app, the code snippet as following:



if (Capabilities.hasMP3) {
  _sound = new Sound();
  _sound.load(new URLRequest("xxx.mp3"));
 }else {
  var noPlayButton:LabelButton = new LabelButton();
  noPlayButton.label = "No MP3";
  noPlayButton.x = (stage.stageWidth - noPlayButton.width)/2;
  noPlayButton.y = (stage.stageHeight - noPlayButton.height)/2;


The mp3 file is in the same folder as .as file, and it can play when I run the app on desktop ; however, there is no sound if the app is run on simulator, and there is no "No MP3" button either. I checked the Sound Card is Auto detect, Connected is checking on.....


Any idea what should be setup? or how should change the code?

Re: How to play mp3 in tablet simulator

Sound/speakers in the simulator do not currently work.  Hope to have that in the next SDK release.  If it works as an AIR application, you're probbly safe to assume it will work on the final device.
