@chriswere I was listening to Trendy Talk while browsing gemini://chriswere.uk, using Lagrange. Can you please show me the way you coded those audio entries? I actually listened to all of the podcasts while browsing using the #Lagrange #Gemini browser. Did you have to add any special entries to the .meta file? That's not the only thing I'm curious about either I also need any insights you may have, using gemtext, to write .gmi files. Thanks

@agentcasey @ChrisWere Interesting, it seems to be browser specific on how it handles the media files

@ruenoak @ChrisWere @ruenoak yes, what's really relevant is that it seems that each #Gemini browser handle audio files differently. #Lagrange actually played the audio from withing the browser itself. If using #Bollux, one notices that Bollux downloads the audio file and then one may listen to it using another tool. Which is what I had expected Lagrange to do. My other Gemini Browser, #Castor freezes when I select the audio file, then after a few minutes it recovers and starts up rhythm box and starts playing every file in my ~/Music directory. It doesn't download the file. It was on @ChrisWere Gemini capsule located at gemini://chriswere.uk. I wish to know the syntax he used while adding the audio file to his .gmi page. I added a file to one of my test pages and even with Lagrange I couldn't get it to play the file. I'll include a screen shot. So since I could get the files to play, one .mp3 the other .ogg, I think the syntax of the entry is important. Oh Bollux is consistent, it will still download the file. Long story short, I just want to see his entry on that particular page and what steps he took, in order for me to play and hear his audio file in Lagrange and when I include audio files on one of my pages it shows up but the files wont play.
