Description jeastmond 1999-08-26 00:26:43 UTC
I can't hear any sounds when I browse java applets
in Netscape 4.61. I know the sound is set up correctly
on my Red Hat 6.0 system as I can run RealPlayer with
no problem.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-08-27 04:11:59 UTC
Java in Netscape 4.61 under Linux does not support sound, and I don't
believe Netscape (AOL) has any short-term plans to change this.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-08-27 04:12:59 UTC
it may be possible to incorporate an add-on library to fix this.  I am
looking into the problem further.
