HTML Email with Audio

Posted 12 July 2010 - 11:54 AM

Does anyone know if there is a way to embed an audio file into an HTML Email. I don't want it to start as a background sound. I want a little media player type thing with at least a play/pause button. If anyone knows anything about this, let me know. I tried looking it up but the only stuff I could find that was somewhat related was background sounds.

Thanks

Unfortunately HTML emails are very much in the dark ages in terms of the code you can use to build them, I don't know for sure, but I would be surprised if you could embed any kind of player in there. You may just have to try it and see what happens?

That's what I've been thinking, but I'll keep checking around.

You can put in a link to an auto file you host on a server somewhere. That's about it. Different email clients vary quite a lot in what they will actually render, and auto files are likely to be (relatively speaking) large. Mailing people large files may not be the best thing to do either, depending on your circumstances.

Yea, I realize this. I personally wouldn't do it, but a client was wondering if it was possible.

After much searching, I've come to the conclusion there is no way to include an audio media player in an email that will be seen universally. Thanks to those that replied.
