I'm targeting modern browsers (only those that support
<audio>) and specifically the iPad. I've tested here and wav works on chromium, firefox 4.0 (both mac 10.6) and on the iPad. I have a couple dozen audio files so I'd like to avoid multiple versions if possible.
I'll be starting and stopping the audio programmatically, no browser default controls (just buttons I attach), in case that's relevant.
Someone gave me a vague warning against using .wav; to wit:
be careful with that unless you intend to have the .wav be a pcm stream
So, any reason I shouldn't use wav for cross browser support and call it a day?
