Title: Sound issues with Firefox 3.0.7
Post by: pcolella on March 26, 2009, 02:09:48 PM
For those of you using the new Firefox 3. 0. 7 and having sound issues here's a fix.  The embed tag needs a MIME qualifier such as type="audio/mpeg" so you will need to modify the template file monitor_content. tpl and add this to the embed tag.

Also broken is the beep while chatting.  For that you'll have to edit the chat. php file found in class/js and add an embed tag within the object tag.

Hope this helps anyone that was having the same issues.

Would you be kind and point out exactly where these files are and where in the file these changes have to be made.   I am not a coder and a little guidance on where to make these changes would be of great help.

I am also experiencing this problem with sound.

Sadly I don't have a local HCL install anymore, so I can't tell you exactly, but if you look for any folders relating to themes or templates you will find it quick enough. In that main themes/templates folder, there is one called G and one called Bliss (I think). Inside there just modify monitor_content.tpl. Do a search for <embed and you will find the line to change. Just add it inside the tag (<embed> becomes <embed type="audio/mpeg">, but of course it isn't an empty tag, or I don't think it is)

As for the beeping, from the main HCL directory, open up class/js/chat.php and also search for <embed and add it the same (or maybe this one is <object, sorry, I can't remember as I patched it a while ago). However if you look in those files you should find it. In the template file it is closer to the bottom, can't remember where in chat.php
