Does anyone know how to incorporate Audio with the slide.show?  Anyone try this?  Samples?   Bueller?

Hi Matt,

I am building a website with the SlideShow 2 as local internet newspapers. I don't have audio running within the SlideShow but added a streaming internet radio station within my home page.

So visitors are always hearing the radio station when they visit the website, see my page on: http://www.lokaalbreda.nl

The source I used is:

(SlideShow 2)

<object type="application/x-silverlight-2" data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," style="width: 896px; height: 504px" id="Lokaal_Breda_Internetkranten">
    <param name="background" value="#FFFFFFFF" />
    <param name="source" value="lb3/Vertigo.SlideShow.xap" />
    <param name="initParams" value="ConfigurationProvider=XmlConfigurationProvider;Path=Configuration/Configuration.xml,DataProvider=XmlDataProvider;Path=Data.xml;Album=1;SlideIndex=1" />
    <a href="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=124807" style="text-decoration: none;"><img src="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=108181" alt="Get Microsoft Silverlight" style="border-style: none" /></a>
   </object>

(Radio Station)

   <object id="Player" classid="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" height="0" width="0">
    <param name="mute" value="0"/>
    <param name="URL" value="http://217.196.35.12/asx/thevalentinestation.asx"/>
    <param name="autostart" value="true"/>
    <param name="uiMode" value="mini"/>
    <param name="volume" value="25"/>
    <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" type="application/x-mplayer2"/>
   </object>

Because I changed the Height and With to "0", the audioplayer is not vissible to my website visitors, but the player plays the music in the background.

Further more you can use .wmv video/audiofiles within SlideShow. Just ad it as a normal slide:

<slide source="videofolder/xxxx.wmv"/>
 
Hope this clears your question!

Regards,

EGH
