Audio link in user Dictionary
Good evening,

I have made a ThML dictionary module (strictly for my own use), also to use in PocketSword.

I want to play an .mp3 audio file from within this module, but cannot get the link to work - I have tried every possible (maybe not all) combination I could find on the internet, but nothing works.

The need to make it work in all the Crosswire front-ends is therefore not required, it plays from within Xiphos without problems, so I assume it will also work in BibleTime, BPBible, etc.

Has anyone tried this and if so, what is the command for PocketSword please?

I use an iPhone 5 with iOS 7.0.3 and PocketSword 1.4.5.

In His Name.

Hi Johan,

Did you try the suggestion that I made via email? You can also take a look at modules that have images inside them, as they will work using a similar method :)

Thanks,
Nic :)

Nic,

Yes, I tried different options, but I can't make it to work.

I use images extensively without problems (e.g. <img src="/maps/Avrahams Journey from Ur to Kenaan.jpg" alt="Abraham's Journey from Ur to Kena`an">.

Can you direct me to a module that uses audio please?

Thanks,

Hi Johan,

AFAIK there are no modules out there that use audio yet. It has been talked about a lot but nothing has happened.

To figure out what is going on in PocketSword, I would need a copy of any module you are working on. Please either email me a copy or put a copy of the (zipped) module somewhere for me to download and test with if it's too big to be emailed.

Thanks, ybic
nic... :)

I forwarded the docs via e-mail to you.
