Sound.js streaming audio

Reported by ronin-76573 (at lighthouseapp) | November 14th, 2009 @ 09:07 PM

I noticed the script is not capable handling streaming audio. I managed to change that for at least the most popular browsers which are running on windows using The MS Mediaplayer. I attached the code

You can see it running at http://wekkerradio.berkheij.nl/

in order to play mp3, wave or streaming audio (like radiostations) without worries, the default template code should be:
new Template(''

          +'<param name="URL" value="#{url}">'
          +'<param name="autostart" value="-1">'
          +'<param name="hidden" value="true">'
          +'<param name="ShowControls" value="false">'
          +'<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false">'
          +'<param name="ShowDisplay" value="false">'
          +'<embed name="mediaplayer" id="sound_#{track}_#{id}" type="application/x-mplayer2" width="0" height="0" src="#{url}" autostart="1" loop="0" autostart="1" hidden="1" ShowControls="0" />'

One small note: On Internet Explorer 8 there is a small dot visible and sometimes a small square during creation or replacement of the object.

Tested on a Windows 7 Ultimate pc
with browsers:
Firefox 3.5.5
Safari 4.04
Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385 (also with compatibilitymode)
Opera 10.01 Build 1844
