No sound in Chromium on Linux (Ubuntu). Unfortunately, that often happens when I click on these experiments, due to lack of MP3 support. There is MP3.js to get around the patent issues, if Linux support is important to you: https://github.com/devongovett/mp3.js

it works for me: Chromium Version 22.0.1229.94 Ubuntu 12.10 (161065)

Weird. That's the exact same version string in mine and I get nothing. Did you install some kind of MP3 plugin/codec to get it to work?

I didn't install anything specifically for this site but looking through my installed packages I now recall I had previously installed e.g.:




chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra did it. Thanks! Weird that no corresponding package seems to exist for Firefox.
