Hi again Alain

What you are talking about I think is known as a form of Dynamic HTML. Basically you use LiveCode to build your list of audio files (put the files into tFileList) and choose one (random or picked by the user via a mobilePick...) then replace out the source file pointer (<source src= ...) in the html file. 

Because you will not be able to write over the original html file included with your app package you will want to duplicate the contents of the html folder into the (specialFolderPath) “Documents” folder. If you are downloading additional audio have these stored directly into Documents/html/audio/. 

Once you’ve changed the html file you can either refresh the page or set the htmltext of the browser to the contents of the updated html file (which is the best option.

How my program can write in an HTML file, considering there is a list of all the soud files including the extention .WAV or .MP3 or another one?

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

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.
