Scott Schiller has updated one of our favourite libraries, SoundManager. Being able to simply play some audio from your Ajax applications can be great, as long as you don’t use it gratuitously…. although we tend to do that a little in some of our demos :) We used SoundManager in our Wii Darts application.
The new version has performance improvements so the sound happens a lot quicker, a few bugs are killed, but most of all you will see some really great demos to cover use cases from users such as “I just want to be able to click and play a MP3 link in-page.”
Some of the cool new demos:
- Page as a playlist: (Muxtape.com-style UI) with a few themes, load/play progress, scrub/seek within track, timing etc.
- Play MP3s in-place demo.
Oh, and you gotta love the Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 explanations of SoundManager ;)
