    Hi there,
    i had an audio-file in my blog using the [audio]-tag. there was a small audio-player but its not longer there. now there is only a link to the audio-file saying ‘download ***.mp3’.
    Has the [audio]-tag been changed or is it broken somehow ?

    example is this page : http://maggsti.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/morningbird/

    Can anyone help ?

    Hi there,
    I think your issue may be related to this one https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/all-of-my-flash-audio-players-just-turned-into-download-links-today?replies=2 which I tagged for Staff. I’m tagging this one also.

    Hi there,

    We have had to temporarily disable the Flash audio player. If your browser does not natively support the format of the embedded audio file, you’ll see a download link instead.

    At this time:

    Chrome natively supports: .mp3, .m4a, .wav, and .ogg.

    Safari natively supports: .mp3, .m4a, .wav, but not .ogg (which will display a download link).

    Firefox natively supports: .wav and .ogg, but not .mp3 and .m4a (which will both display a download link).

    Opera natively supports: .wav and .ogg, but not .mp3 and .m4a (which will both display a download link).

    Internet Explorer natively supports: .mp3, but not .m4a, .wav, and .ogg (which will all display a download link).

    What formats a browser chooses to natively support is entirely up to the browser’s developers, we have no control over that.

    Until now, we have given the Flash audio player precedence, fallen back to the browser’s native player when Flash isn’t available, and then fallen back to the Download link when the format is not supported by the browser.

    With the Flash player temporarily disabled, we are giving the browser’s native player precedence and falling back to the Download link when the format is not supported by the browser.

    Whether it’s via an embedded player or a Download link, all of your viewers will be able to play the audio files.

    Hi amightywp (love your username…)

    Do you currently have a ‘time table’ for the temporary loss of the Flash audio player..?

    Thank You….
