Details

(Whiteboard: need to change from filespec to URLs)

Certain groups have expressed interest in having a crossplatform way to play
sound files (specifically wav or whatever other native things a platform may
require)

Target Milestone: M9
I have commited changes needed for this to play files locally on both linux and
windows.  to test this on linux, you will need esd, which I will try and find
rpms for shortly.  mail me if you have any questions about making this run on
linux.
we need some kind of converter so that people can pass in file urls instead of
having to have localness things like /foo/foo.wav under unix or c:\foo\foo.wav
on windows.  Is there anything like this available ?
I belive we should be using nsFileSpec's maybe for this?  anyone know?  adding
simon to the cc list as he mentioned this.
we use filespecs for this.  there is a soundtest in the apprunner
debug/xptoolkit menu.  this is implimented at this time under unix, windows and
beos
Target Milestone: M9 → M12
moving to M12.  Anyone want to do the Mac implimentation?  I also need to look
at maybe using url's instead of filespecs for files.

FYI, there is QuickTime sample code for Mac (and Windows) that will play a WAV
file from disk. Look for the sample code on the QuickTime developer site.
Look for SndSnip_PlayWAVEFileWithQuickTime() in the sound snippets code at
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/developers/samplecode.html#goodies
