Glassfish stream mp3 for HTML5 audio to IE 9

By default, Glasshfish handle the MIME-TYPE as audio/x-mpeg for mp3 file, thus IE 9 can not play the mp3 with HTML5 audio object.

The solution is:

Open the Glassfish/domain/domain1/config/default-web.xml


    mp3    audio/x-mpeg

and alter it to

    mp3    audio/mpeg

Restart the glassfish & now IE 9 should be able to play mp3 file without problem.

Don’t forget to define following tag in your HTML file

<!DOCTYPE html>
