SoundLink Sound Link

Add a link to a MP3 sound. Sound links work the same way as normal sounds except a URL is required rather than a file. The same sound functions can be used. Use the name in the library to reference the sound, not the URL. Sounds are downloaded and cached before they can be played in the player. When exporting to HTML, sounds are preloaded where possible.

Adobe® Flash® Player Security

Some web browser such as Firefox and Opera may require Adobe® Flash® to play sound and video. If a security warning is shown you will need to change Adobe® Flash® security settings. Adobe® Flash® blocks advanced features when run directly from a computer.

Adobe® Flash® Player Security AdobeWarning

Open the settings from the warning, choose advanced and add the export folder to the list of trusted locations. Sometimes it's easier to add the whole C:\ drive to the list of trusted locations. This won't be a problem when the page is hosted on the internet.
