Reference External Music Files

Jul 11, 2016

Hi all, 

This morning I woke up wondering how fa can SL2 be pushed.

I was wondering if it was possible to reference music files in the External_files folder in a SL2 export? 

Example: If an interface for a music player was created in SL would pushing play be able to play an audio file from the External_Files folder? I have figured that this will likely need to be Javascript. 

What would happen if I decide to jump to the next track? Would the next song in the External_files folder be able to play?


This would be rather useful if you want to add different music to an e-learning course. The user would have the ability to skip to the next track at will or even shuffle the music. 


Has anyone tried to build this or know what the JS would look like?
