Audio test is complete. Thanks everyone, for your feedback. I went with the one that seemed to work for almost everyone.
1, 2 and 4 work well, 3 plays sound, but the tracking doesn't work. 5 is just a black box for me.
1-4 work for me though the bar doesn't actually move on #3. #5 doesn't work at all. I use Firefox 3.5.5 on a CentOS (Linux) machine.
They all worked for me via the website and via google reader. I'm on a Mac. (cracked me up each time, too)
i can hear number 3 and 5 and I have internet explorer...hope that helps :) You are awesome!
IE 8. 1 and 2 don't work, 3,4 and 5 work.
3,4, and 5 work on ours IE 8.0 and Windows 7 OS

I'm using Mozilla Firefox 3.6 on Windows XP SP3 and they all work perfectly except for #5. That one tells me I need an additional plugin to use.
Not only did all five samples work for me (FireFox, Windows XP), but I was listening to them while some drums & bass music played in the background. It was absolutely perfect. :)

1-4 all played fine for me on Google Reader, using Google Chrome, though the bar didn't track on the 3rd. When I loaded the page itself, 5 also worked, though it played automatically.
All five worked for me (Windows Vista running latest version of Firefox with loads of add-ons like Adblock & NoScript), although #5 appeared as just a black box. Still played when clicked, though.
They all work for me in Firefox on a Mac
I like 1 and 2 myself. 4 works, but either I can't find the volume control, or there is none. 3 played the audio, but the tracking was broken. 5 was a "Video is loading" box. I'm using Firefox 3.6 on Windows XP Pro SP3.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 all work - 3 doesn't track; FF 3.0.17 on WinXP
all worked for me 'cept #5. I'm using forefox and windws xp. THough i believe it has more to do with what plugins you have installed than browser.
Hi! all work for me! Though the last one, was lower in volume. Using Firefox on Win XP
3, 4 and 5 worked for me. The quality was better on 3 and 4. I'm using Explorer.

I'm using Firefox on Windows XP and they all worked fine for me. :)
Safari on Mac OS 10.5.8, and all 5 worked well
I'm using Firefox and all but the last one works.
I'm on Firefox with Windows 7, all are working great for me!
1, 2, 3 and 4 work with Google Chrome, can't see 5 and 1 sounds fuzzy.

They all work for me, except 3 the scrubber thing doesn't move. I'm on the latest firefox on a Mac OSX
3, 4 and 5 work fine - 5 seemed quickest.
Firefox on Mac1-5 show up and work on the webpage.1-4 show up and work via RSS (Google Reader). 5 doesn't show up.
3 and 4 work
Firefox och PC and all work just fine!
I've got Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Vista. Only number 1 worked for me. Do the others require an add-on of some kind? I've got Windows Media Player and Quicktime.
I use Google Reader. #1-4 worked.
On IE 7 (DON'T LAUGH), 1-2 are dead and 3-5 work fine. I can get 1 and 2 working only f I view the page source, scoop out the actual URLs for the media files, and plug them directly into the browser.
Safari whose version and OS I cannot disclose. 5 sounded best, 1 & 2 work fine, 4 is fully functional, and I can hear 3 but it looks like crap.
im using opera i had no issue with any of them on your blogsite so i decides to test them in google reader and number 5 didnt showmy personal preference would be 1 or 2
1 and 2 = not working3-5 = work fineI'm in the Western US btw
5th didn't work and 3rd didn't show the timeline. Others worked fine. I'm using Mozilla 3.5 on Windows vista.
Mac OS X 10.62, 3 and 4 work in the google reader gadget on google chrome (184.108.40.206), 1 and 5 do not. 1 is blank space and 5 is a black bar.1 also works directly on blogspot in google chrome, but 5 is still just a black bar.With FIrefox (3.5.5) and Safari (4.0.4) they all work when viewed directly on the blogspot site.

For what it's worth:#5 is probably going to be your best option as it is "player agnostic" and the others rely on what version of flash a person has installed - has nothing to do with browser much at all.My suggestion is to use #5 OR upload your own flash player to maintain consistency. Otherwise, you use one of these external flash players and the URL changes or it goes the way of the dodo - all your links are broken.Uploading your own it is always there and you can update it (and not all your links!)
1-2 work superb3-4 ok (sound is good, display kinda shity)5, 5? where is the fifth? (there's something but it seems i need to download a plugin).Firefox on XP, will check firefox on Ubuntu (Linux) at home and let you know.
They all work for me!Except that the timeline isn't following on 3rd, but I can still hear it.I'm using Firefox on Mac OS X.
1 & 2 don't work at all; 3 & 4 work but cut out/bad sound; 5 works!
thanks Karen&Adam.the audio works for me i use windows vista and firefox
Aw...whichever one you went with is the one and only one blocked by my company's firewall. Ah well...no more Sleeptalkinman on my coffee breaks.
We just got tuned into your Blog last night and were laughing for hours! Thank you for sharing Adam with all of us!
All work- and make my day, every day, multiple times! And since I'm from the US, the "accent" (it is to me!) just makes it even better. Keep 'em coming!THANKS for sharing!
All audio fine for me on XP and IE8 now! Thanks for the fix!!!
all worked for me i have a pc
thanks so very much for fixing the audio issues, much appreciated. i am hooked on this blog. congrats on your honeymoon and i do hope you have a wonderful time.
This is the first time any of them have played for me. It was just a black bar for a long time, then it was the little Quicktime logo that wouldn't play. I'm so glad I finally get to hear these!
This is the first time that I have been able to listen to the audio. The Pirate quote is so much better than I could have EVER imagined. I'm going back to listen again.

Hi Karen -- whatever you've changed made all the audio clips nonfunctional for me. I use the browser "opera." Not good. ):

Oh no! They used to all work for me and now that you've settled on the best they've all vanished. So disapointing.
Oh Thank you Thank you...now I have audio!! You're a love!
It was just a black bar for a long time, then it was the little Quicktime logo that wouldn't play.This is the first time any of them have played for me. I'm so glad I finally get to hear these! Autoimmune Disease Blog
