Audio tag

So what's the "materiality" of digital audio in the browser?

Audio (HTML tag)

A Script (Performance)

The Audio Tag

When asked to "load":
    Say: "loaded" and then a few seconds later "durationchange"
When asked your "currentTime":
   Report the number you're standing closest to.
When asked to set your "currentTime":
   Move to the number requested
When asked to "play":
    start moving towards higher numbers
When moving and you cross a new number:
    Say: "timeupdate"

Callback 1

When AUDIO says "durationchange":
    Tell AUDIO: "Set currentTime to 60" and then (after a few seconds) "play"

Callback 2

When AUDIO says "timeupdate":
    Ask AUDIO: What is your "currentTime"
    If it's response is 63 or bigger:
        Tell AUDIO: "pause"

Javascript

Javascript version of the above.

$(audio).bind("durationchange", function () {
    audio.currentTime = 60;
    audio.play();
}).bind("timeupdate", function () {
    if (audio.currentTime >= 63) {
        audio.pause();
    }
});

AudioLooper
