Playing a sound onmouseover

Hi,

On a rollover I am looking to change an image AND have a sound play. I was hoping to do this with javascript. The image is done but the sound - I have been looking into it (sound with javascript) and it seems like this is a thing of the past - and is difficult to do cross browser etc. Anyone have any info on whether this is possible, or how difficult it would be? I was hoping to do this without flash, but will use it if no other options present themselves.

Thanks for you help,

Heya, Steve.

To do this, you'd have to embed a sound file into the page and then call the element's play() method when mousing over the image (and stop() on mouseout, maybe). No promises as to synchronization, though.

and this is cross-browser compliant you reckon?

Presumably; all browsers support embedded objects, and they are controllable. This is about the extent of my knowledge in this area, though.

The object element is the standard element to use. See link. Read up on the object element reference (and other refs.) on the left hand side menu.

If you're still stuck, you could try PlayMedia, which works most of the time.
