Audios do not load into new Media Player when I import the listening test into other courses

Jump to solution

I created a listening test on my school's Canvas platform. I uploaded the audio tracks as WEBM files. They play fine, BUT when I tried to import the test with the question bank and the audio files folders, I get an error when I try to run the test. I open the listening test, click play on the Canvas Media Player, and it just downloads the file. The player looks "empty" and doesn't play anything. I've tried importing again but it doesn't work. The only way to do it is to manually link each audio with the question, However, this is very time-consuming. In the prior version of Canvas, the player was simple and it could be done without any problem. Any suggestions?

If you check out the 0:19 mark on this video, it shows how you can use a little code to create an audio player in Canvas.  Perhaps that would be useful for you.

<audio controls="controls">
        <source src="URL in your Canvas files" type="audio/ogg" />
        <source src="URL in your Canvas files" type="audio/mpeg" />
        Your browser does not support the audio element.
    </audio>

Great. I'm going to try it out and I'll let you know if it works.
