MIME settings : mp4 added but still no sound in IE

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Jul 05, 2014 6:26 pm

Hello,

I've added the recommended MIME settings in order to get sound and web storage, application/manifest+json etc. going but my apps still don't produce sound when played online.
The images bellow shows that the entry is there.

My host isn't particularly helpful and more or less insists that the problem has to be solved within my app code.
When tested locally, my apps do function as expected when opened / previewed with IE.

If anyone has some additional info besides what is in the manual, I'd be most grateful to finally fix this last annoyance.

For what it's worth, I'd be willing to move to a new host if I have to (so if your sound works in IE, please tell me who you are hosting with?).

Thanks,

vancouver :)

@blackhornet

been there, done that!

(Just to be on the safe side, I double checked ALL required mime types as specified in the manual and they are all there).

I don't know what else I can do?

audio/mp4 is exactly: .m4a
Nothing else, don't skip the dot!

Just for the fun of it, I've added "audio/mp4" with the extension ".m4a"

Now I guess that the server will take some time to update so, I'll test again in a few hours.

It would be amazing if I could get sound in IE! :)

Alright, it's time to consider plan B!

Thos of you who have sound working in IE, PLEASE post with whom you are hosting.

I am willing to change webhost if I have to.

So??? Is bluehost capable of doing this?

I was just told by tech support that IE does not support mp4 sound.

So HOW do I fix this?

They are wrong. You can point them at Microsofts IE site that clearly states M4A is the audio format supported.

(Maybe try again without the dot - it may depend on the underlying system if the dot is needed or not.)

thanks black hornet. I will add one more entry ... but to be honest, I am ready to move on.
With all the apps begin released over the next weeks and months, I should pick up some considerable traffic for http://littlecomposers.com and maybe it's best to upgrade my hosting and find a host which can do what i need.

I really appreciate your advice! :)
