[SOLVED] Music not working

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by to help a newbie!

For some reason, my layout is unable to play music...


This is the process I used:

- Imported .ogg music file (which is under 1 min long) to 'music' folder.
Tried to make it play using...
"system --> On start of layout ---> audio --->Play filename looping at volume 0db"

However when I play the layout, there is no music at all. I feel that I must be doing something fundamentally wrong (being a beginner and all), so any help would be very much appreciated :)

I've tried searching the forums for answers but have come up short.

Thanks again,
B

Well I found the problem surely enough, but I'll leave this post here in case anyone else comes across this issue. ;)

The problem seems to be Internet Explorer. I changed the 'preview browser' to Chrome or Firefox, and viola, the audio magically reappears. :lol: :lol: :lol:

By the way where did you put your music file?

If you put songs in the music folder you will not be able to play them on a real device. This bug still hasn't been addressed.

Put you music in the SOUNDS FOLDER.
