Sound Manager 2 Failed to Initialize

“Getting "Sound Manager 2 Failed to Initialize" error when trying to preview your page locally”

Question


When I am trying to preview my page containing the HTML5 MP3 Player in any browser it gives me the "sound manager2 failed to initialize" message. I am not sure what I am doing wrong?

Answer


Maybe you are trying to run your page locally. This application uses some flash components in back end. They have some restrictions for working for localhost. Upload you application to a testing server or if you like to be able to preview it locally you need to set the correct settings in www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04.html
Please check the explanations on this page.
