controling sound (IE)

How to controle playing of sounds. by N3XuS
Posted: 3 Oct 03

1st off:
You could controle sound using next methods:

function start() {
<body onload="document.all.sound.play()">
<embed src="sound.wav" autoplay="true" name="sound"></embed>
<A href="#" onmouseover="start()">START</A>
this doesn't seem to work on all PCs though, probably has something to do with sounds being played by different plugins. Both my PCs that had realplayer installed wouldn't accept the play() and stop() methods.

A workaround this problem is each time you wanna start a sound and stop it , re-initiate the sound source and times it has to loop.
1: put ur sound as backgroundsound.
<bgsound src="#" id=sound loop=1 autostart="true">
2: to start the sound do
    document.all.sound.src= 'typewriter.wav'
   to stop the sound do
    document.all.sound.src= 'typewriter.wav'

it may not be the cleanest solution, but it seemed to work on all my PCs running IE.
