I am testing the trial version of Inquisit 3 to see how it works and if it will meet my research team's need. We want to use audio files as stimuli, however I am having some problems. We have both .wav and .mp3 versions of the sound bytes, but I cannot get the .mp3 files to work. We would like to use the mp3 format to let the experiment download as quickly as possible.
Is the mp3 issue related to the fact that I am experimenting on the trial version? Or is there a coding instruction that could be at the core of the issue?
By chance are you trying to play mp3s with the <sound> element? If so, try using the <video> element instead.
Yes, I know, that's kind of goofy, but the <video> element is the one that handles streaming formats.
