They sound like the player above. (Requires Flash.)

Now you can put sounds in any of your posts. Simply use the new code:
Code:
[sound="Title of sound file"]URL of sound file[/sound]
Example:
[sound="DSi pulse"]http://members.optusnet.com.au/itoshiki/DSipulse.mp3[/sound]
This code creates a player like the one at the top of this post.

You can only use MP3-encoded files with these tags. (And sorry, there's no autoplay, so you're not going to go around and annoy people with wretched music.)

Is there a limit on the file size of the sounds?

It seems awesome. :D

There isn't, it should be noted. It only triggers when it's clicked, so even a 10 MB song with 320 kbps compression will play, but won't drag down a person's internet unless the person wants it to play.

Which means, it's no different to having a long YouTube video embedded. (But you still shouldn't have huge MP3s there.)

I tested it out and it only plays the first 15 seconds or so and stops. Is there a limit on how long the file can be, or is it just buffering?

I'd say it's the buffering. It might stop at some points (and need to be replayed). I call them sound clip buttons for a reason? :D (I don't know the full extent of the code myself, sadly.)

I found out why, it's buffering. Because I tried it again it went up to 2 minutes and stopped, so yeah; huge mp3 files are not recommended. :x (mine is 4.57 MB)

And I changed the kind of player to a different kind; see if it works. (It shows buffering status.)

The addition seems slightly useless but there isn't any problem with it being there I suppose. I'm glad they can't be auto-played.

I just noticed that it seems to use up the necessary 24 characters for posts, therefore a potential way to bypass the 24 character rule... is there any way you can fix that?

I should let you know that even images do that. Which means, if you do it, we'll get you anyway. D;

This is cool. :3

But just to make sure, when you say it can use any file, that means your able to put in video files from YouTube or photobucket, right?

Wow what a cool addition. I noticed it when I seen it Danja's signature. So that is what is it, cool. But I got a question as well. If we do use it will it count as a line of text or a banner in our signature?

Only left channel audio is coming in.
Is it just this specific clip or are they all like that?

I'm asking since I can't try it myself because I don't have any sound URLs.

Holy crud, someone's paying attention to the audio channels. o-o

The DSi menu only plays audio in the left audio channel, I assume. (That, or it's my computer.)

Well, I just uploaded a clip for my signature. it plays fine on both channels. So it's not the player. :D

Anyways this is a neat little function. Maybe you could make it so we could set a song on our profile as well :D

As a headphone user, I find it hard not to.

Mm, Zanzie's signature has just answered my initial question. :O

A very nice addition, Haraken. This might come in handy for some hacking-related purposes....

Is the [sound] BB Code allowed in profiles?
I know several people that could make great use of it if it's enabled in profiles.
