Safari doesn't play the song samples (which are a great addition, btw). Chrome and Firefox do. [Mac OS X 10.7.3]

Hi Brett,
We're testing in Safari 6 and we are able to play the samples.
Does the problem correct itself if you upgrade your browser?

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yep, just tested Safari 6.0.2 in Lion 10.7.5 (in a virtual machine) and the samples play as they should.

Thank you, that is great!

Whew!
We'll look into why it isn't working on older versions of the browser, but I'm glad this solved it for you.

Tried it again

OS X 10.7.5
Safari 6.0.2

They still won't play for me (clicking gives no visual feedback that anything is happening) but it's not a problem as they play fine in Chrome. Just fyi to help Allmusic because it's a great site. I have ClickToFlash installed in Safari, in case that helps (though doesn't look like the samples are Flash based?)

But anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

Samples work great now, fyi. Thanks!

Safari 6.1
Mac 10.7.5

I'm sure they worked fine a while ago, just was reminded to amend this by an email indicating this thread was moved to a different spot.
