The book compiles fine, plays well, plays the background mp3 referred to in the page background sound reference. The background music is not compiled in the book and is in the same root folder with the rest of the mp3 files on the CD. All files are in the CD root.
Do I need to include the AMM.CDPLAYER command somewhere? I don't know anything AT ALL about inserting these commands. I'm familiar with HTML, but this is totally foreign to me. How do I get the link to work and play the intended file?
OK, so in the main program (under the Add-Ins tab) there is a box for Extensions -> Load. This contains the AMM extension which I added as described in the Help/Installation file. In the "Edit" fields there is a rather large box which I assume can hold other "stuff" than the existing reference to AMM.
The Add/Remove/Info boxes are greyed out. Is this where the onload MP3 command is evoked? If so, how so?--with the Add box being grey.
But I'm sorry Lw, as I haven't used that package. I just embed the sound when needed, and with web pages, the MP3s have always required that an MP3 player be installed.
By "evoked the onload MP3" I was referring to the method you used to play the MP3 upon startup, when you said "The book... plays the background mp3 referred to in the page background sound reference. "
Besides the incorrectly nested quote marks, I'm not sure what else to do unless I tried it myself. Perhaps there are some MM Extension users online?
Anyway, I don't think the Activ variables come into play here.
Perhaps Sunil can shed some light on the MM Extensions when he gets healthier, and returns to the forum community.
So, if you are using ebook compiler how do you play MP3 files that are not compiled in the book. Anything compiled with the book will play OK, but I have 600Mb of MP3s to index in the book with a link to each of about 35 files.
Do you have a bit of HTML code that can be used to reference files outside the compilation and evoke the MP3 player?
MP3s do need a 3rd-party player - I did a quick look online, and info on launching one from a web page doesn't seem readily available. Seems I swear I've seen it done, but I may be mistaken. Perhaps it was a .wav file.
