I am using Tapestry 5.4-beta26 to create a web site. I want to play a sound on my
Index.tml page. For that I am using HTML5 audio tag.
This is the code for audio tag:
<audio preload="auto" controls="true"> <source src="E:sound.mp3" /> </audio>
When I use the same code in regular html page it works like it should. Can you tell me what the problem is?
This is not a Tapestry issue. It’s a browser security issue. Any HTML page served by a web server (your Tapestry app is running in a web server/servlet container such as Jetty or Tomcat) needs to access resources through the web server, not via the local file system. Put your sound.mp3 file in a directory served by your web server (e.g. within your Tapestry project), change the src attribute to match, and it will work fine.
