Sound in tactical overview tac.cgi quit working


It seems that the method of delivering sounds to the browser has changed from Nagios 2.5 to 2.7. It seems that it’s being done in a manner more conforming to web standards, which is always good (object -> embed instead of plain embed). The bad part is that it doesn’t work; at least not with firefox 1.5 and 2.0.

Specifically, the warning sounds are delivered like this in “status detail”. This works for me.

and like this in “tactical overview”. This fails for me.

Anyone know why? Has anyone fixed this? If not, I guess I’ll edit the source for the cgis and fix myself, but if there’s an accepted way of doing it, I’d like to follow that to stay mainstream.





I have the same problem. More details:

In status.cgi this problem was only in Nagios version 2.6. From version 2.7, it is o.k.

In tac.cgi this problem is from version 2.6 to 2.9 (current).

Anyone know where to send this bug, so the tac.cgi would be changed?
