SoundManager 2
SoundManager was written to meet a desire to have Javascript-driven sound for interactive web-based projects, and “to make it easy to play MP3s in the browser.”

It is free for use in both personal and commercial projects. Supporting HTML5 audio can be tedious in modern browsers, let alone legacy ones.

With real-world visitors using browsers ranging from mobile Safari to IE 6 across a wide range of devices, there can be many support cases to consider.

Audio Cogs

ALAC.js is a port of the recently open-sourced original Apple Lossless decoder to JavaScript.

As its name implies, ALAC is a lossless format designed to reduce file size without compromising quality.


I have tested the player and it works fine on the latest Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera both Mac and Windows versions.

The player works well on Internet Explorer 9, 10 and gracefully degrades to mini mode on earlier versions.

I have also been lucky with iOS 6, Windows Phone and Android 4.2 default browsers.

However, the earlier Android versions do not support “audio” nor “embed” elements, so the player won’t work there at all.
