Playing a sound in javascript

P: 145
Is there any efficient way to do this?
I found you could do it using
<bgsound> or <embeded>
Are these efficient and are they xhtml valid?
Is there no javascript functionality to play sounds?

Thanks, Josh

Hmmm... without doing some research on Google I don't really know.

You could do it in Flash and trigger it from Javascript.
LongTail Video and the JW Player has a media player that has a javascript API, so you could load the jukebox into a hidden <div> somewhere and then use javascript to tell it which sound to play and when.

there is no JavaScript-method that plays sound ... but i think you may go for the <object>-tag

See Playing Sounds In The Browser - use a browser helper object.
