I'm on Wikipedia, trying to read this article. There is a sample audio on the page. But, I can't seem to play it with IE9. It works on other browsers though. It's an .ogg file.
Here's the article page -
contact the wikipedia authors and ask them to include mp3 files in the html5 video and audio tags.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.

Thanks for your feedback.
Is there a way to have IE9 support these ogg files (as used by Wikipedia)? Contacting every Wikipedia author is not feasible.

web search for convert ogg to mp3
to find a tool to convert those files yourself after downloading the oog versions from wikipedia
no... there isn't...
the new video and audio elements are meant to replace Addons/Plugings like Flash and Quicktime.
It is up to web sites to provide the media in formats that the web browser recognises. There are a number of tools that web sites can use to convert files.
If you have quicktime installed on your Windows machine, you could download the oog file from Wikipedia and then open it with Quicktime to view it.
but its up to Wikipedia to provide either the other supported file formats or the link to download the audio/video file.
Such are the Politics of the Web. All (MS, Mozilla, Apple) have their preferred formats.
Hi, its called IP (Intellectual Property)... you would have to appeal the Patent laws to stop desparate vendors having their own proprietary formats.
MPx files plays on both wintel and iOS machines and has the biggest usability base.
