    Default "Sound Tool" missing in Essentials

    Windows XP SP2

    I know this is a group for NOF 11, but I've used NetObjects Fusion for
    years and have bought versions up to 9. Hopefully someone knows the
    answer to this question.

    I downloaded Essentials to my work computer and now I'm trying to build
    a small website. I'm trying to insert a .wav file and I can't find the
    sound tool.

    Does anyone know if that was stripped out intentionally in the cut-down
    version, or if it's more likely a problem with my install or a
    corruption problem?

    Thanks for an help.

    I've never used Essentials, but I'm fairly certain it's based on version 7
    or 7.5. That said, if you already own ver 9, why aren't you using that?

    MP3 has better sound quality and much wider cross platform support than WMV.
    I would suggest embedding a Flash MP3 player on your page with Text Box and
    Ctrl+T.

    I do use it on my home computer. (And at $50, I'll probably buy Version
    11 soon -- as soon as I can find a good excuse.) But my work gets a
    little paranoid about what I load on their computer, although they don't
    mind legitimate, "free" programs. So they let me load Essentials, which
    I thought was pretty cool.

    And since I run a lot of programs at the same time I like that
    Essentials uses fewer resources.

    Thanks. I prefer .mp3 too. I just found out I could use the sound tool
    and use "All Files" for mp3s. I thought I would have to convert to a
    different format.

    I was able to do the following on a site I built with MX a long time ago.

    <EMBED SRC="./assets/multimedia/Example.mp3" HEIGHT=2 WIDTH=2
    AUTOSTART=TRUE HIDDEN=TRUE LOOP=TRUE>

    Since I rarely use sound files, I'm a little rusty with this.

    This plays in the background in a continuous loop which is what I want
    to with the new site.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
