      Description

      In versions before 1.8, you could use the resource type "link to file or website" and point to an mp3 file and, if you had also specified that it display in the same window, it would be filtered and a flash player interface would appear, and a link for direct download would also be available.. This no longer seems to occur as of version 1.8.3. This is causing a problem on our upgraded from 1.6 site. (with over 8,000 mp3 audio lectures)

      Version 1.9 beta has it functioning, like the 1.6 version. Displays in new window with player and link for direct download. This would be our preferred method of handling the mp3 file.

        If you check the "Keep page navigation visible on the same page" box, you will get the desired results. This forces the resource to be embedded in the page.

        The "keep page navigation visible on the same page" will enable to flash player to play the file, but it will not provide a link on the page for direct downloading the file if you wished. I think in version 1.8.2 the "keep page navigation visible on the same page" did not have to be selected for the filter to work, and it also provided the download link.

        In version 1.6.5 we always used the open the resource in a new window setting in order to automatically use the large flash player.

        Version 1.9 beta 2 has the player operating when you select the resource to open in a new window (and it provides the direct download link on the player page)

        I have committed a change to 1.8 STABLE so that this functions the same as in 1.9. Files that can be embedded are embedded regardless of resource frame setting.
