play sounds in HTML5

Hi Alain

The key here is in the line

<source src="piano-melody.wav" type="audio/wav">

Instead of just piano-melody.wav you would put in the whole path or relative path to the file. Example, if your file structure has a folder called ‘html’ containing your html file and then another folder called ‘audio’ which contains all your audio files including one called piano-melody.wav then the code would read

<source src="/audio/piano-melody.wav" type="audio/wav">

This points to the file in a relative path to the html file itself. 

Does this help or have I misunderstood your request?

The sounds library is not in the app and every sound has his proper name. So I can play a sound chosen by random  or chosen by the user.
