It's possible that this problem has been fixed in the already
available upstream version, and the debian version does need
to be bumped again. But the nagios sounds won't play in my web
browsers, Firefox 220.127.116.11 or Safari 3.1.1.
I believe that nagios 3.0.2 does not fix the problems due to the
"Fixed bug in status CGI where sounds were not played for passive
The sound issues I'm having are not passive service problems, but
host down or active service critial failures.
Currently the nagios audio html looks like this:
<object type="application/wav" data="/media/critical.wav" height="0"
<param name="filename" value="/media/critical.wav">
<param name="autostart" value="1">
<param name="playcount" value="1">
I have created a test page where the sound does play correctly:
<object type="audio/x-wav" data="/media/critical.wav">
<param name="playcount" value="1" />
<param name="src" value="/media/critical.wav" />
<param name="autoplay" value="true" />
For Firefox: change autostart = 1 => autostart = true
For Safari: change autostart = 1 => autostart = true
add: <param name="src" value="/media/critical.wav" />
I haven't tested IE.
I believe that "audio/x-wav" is a better mime type than
"application/wav", but the browsers I tested don't care.
Also, moving towards HTML5 is probably a good idea in the future.
