Audio Extension ; what is the path to .mp3 file?



I'm using Audio Extension to play sample.mp3 file. This file is stored inside folder [audio] within my app. Here is the code I used and it didn't work


var playerInstance = new  blackberry.audio.Player("file///audio/sample.mp3");



I'm not sure if "file:///audio/sample.mp3" is the right path to use because it didn't work on simulator/device. Please help

give this a try and post up the results.



var playerInstance = new  blackberry.audio.Player("audio/sample.mp3");



If it's packaged with your WebWorks application, I think that may work.

Thanks! I've tried that but it didn't work. Can Simulator plays audio or do I have to test my app on device to get sounds?

Shouldn't it be "local:///audio/sample.mp3"?

If you're using files in your widget you'll need to use the local URI and content type. 





var playerInstance = new  blackberry.audio.Player("local:///mp3/sound2.mp3","audio/mpeg", true);




First parameter is the URI string (local is relative to your application).

Second is the content-type (see content type example http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/widgetapi/).

Third parameter is to use async or not for playback.


That should work! I didn't test audio on simulator, but works on my Bold.
