No audio in html-pages

Hi all,

my Palemoon (28.2.1 64bit OpenSuSE Tumbleweed) doesn't play audio, when in an html-page inserted like the following:

Code: Select all

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <body bgcolor="#000000" alink="#006600" vlink="#993300" text="#996633" link="#996633">
    <audio autoplay preload="auto" hidden="true" style=" width:0px;">
	<source src="audio/Wirwuenschen.mp3" type="audio/mp3">
	Your browser does not support the audio element.
</audio><br />
    <table cellspacing="2" cellpadding="10" border="0" align="center" width="90%">
          <td align="center" valign="top"><a href="index.html"><img
                alt="" src="bilder/12345.jpg" border="0" width="870"
........      </tbody>
  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2 URL=index.html">

I tried several different possibilities from different sources, wikis etc., but none works.

Anybody an idea for the reason? Konqueror plays the mp3-file well. I don't know, wether Firefox does it, because of the missing audio-support for Linux and i don't want to install the pulseaudio-stuff, as it is senseless rag.

Thanks for the hint. But the reason was different.

The reason, why it didn't work (with the inspector PM seems to ignore the audio-part) was a entry in the config of PM. With about:config one finds two autoplay-entries, which are set to "false". Setting them to "true" makes it working.

Thanks for the help.
