Audio for HTML5

Nov 12, 2014

Is there any other format that can be output from storyline for HTML5 other than mp3? Firefox 17 and 24 don't support it and I need them to play the audio.

No matter what I import, it exports the mp3 format.

Thanks for the response. I was under the impression that HTML5 was in fact supported in Firefox, I mean everything BUT the audio is doing just fine. It only seems to be the older versions not supporting the .mp3 codec that is the problem. What I was wanting to figure out is if I can output something other than .mp3 from Storyline.

Dear Scott,

can you please post or hint at the "extension" you wrote in your forum post about?

Thank you very much :)

I guess it's a hack/change inside the storyline template files, to fix the audio playback and use a different format that works on all plattforms (chrome, ff, mobile safari..)

We ran into the same or a similar problem. We're trying to work around the issue from within storyline 2, but this is a lot of authoring work. (Basically we try to pause a layer or audio before it ends, so it won't be unloaded, but this is a bit messy)
