Audio Test

I’m going to be expanding the way I blog soon (never satisfied I guess), and I need you all to help me out. I’m asking that every single person who reads this make a comment in the Peanut Gallery (by clicking “Peanut Gallery” below this post) or email me. Let me explain.

[I removed this audio because the way I did it stunk. Please refer to the “Audio Test #2” entry or something more recent for a better example]

Above this paragraph you should see some kind of picture that says “Click here to listen to this audio blog.” If you don’t see that, then something isn’t working. If you click it and absolutely nothing happens, something isn’t working. However if you see it and click it, and hear my voice, then something is working. So if it’s working, tell me so. If it’s not working, tell me that. But whatever you do, don’t neglect to comment in the Peanut Gallery or email me! I need all the test cases I can get. If the Peanut Gallery isn’t working for you, email me at joshlewis@mac.com with your response.

Oh, one last thing. When you comment, please tell me what operating system you’re using (Mac OS 8, 9, X, Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP) and what browser you’re using (Netscape, Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla, etc.). If you don’t know what browser or OS you’re using, that’s fine. Simply say so.

That’s all for now! Thank you for your help! If I get enough responses and I can fix the problems that may come up, I’ll be doing audio blogs soon.

    Mac OS 10.2.6 running Camino and it didn’t work. It prompted me to get the plugin but I already have qt 6.3. The funny thing is I can play mp3s in the browser (from mp3.com) but not your’s. It worked on Safari 1.0, Mozilla 1.4b, Firebird 0.6, Opera 6.02, and IE 5.2.2. Yup you counted right, I use 6 browsers.

    Ok, so via email and IM we seem to have fixed a bad path issue and some extra “br” tags. I’ll give it a try on Windows late this week for some more testing. As of right now, seems to work for me in Safari.

    Windows 2000 Professional running IE 6.0.2600.0000 and it didn’t work. First Quicktime prompted me to install something when I first got to your site, which I ignored because I didn’t know what it was about. Then I realized what it was for, ran some Quicktime updates, reloaded the page. This time I could see your little image (“Click here to listen to this audo blog” — nice, what’s an audo blog? ;-), but nothing happened when I clicked on it.

    Ummm, 56k, don’t like downloading except at 1 AM- I’ll have to try this weekend or something.

    So, how good do you think the Raiders will be this year?
