@davemc1 There are two ways to it:

1. You can customize the DAM asset workflow for mp3 audio files.
2. Try using following snippet in your HTML component:

<figure>
<figcaption>Listen to the Music:</figcaption>
<audio
controls
src="/media/examples/music.mp3">
Your browser does not support the
<code>audio</code> element.
</audio>
</figure>

@davemc1,

You can store audio files in the AEM DAM; Sometimes content authors may not upload HTML5 supporting audio files, so you can utilise the "audio" process step (introduced by the AEM ACS Commons tools) https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/wcm-components/audio/index.html; it's a simple installation, just modify the existing "DAM Update Asset Workflow model".

Next, the component that plays audio. I don't think AEM ships an HTML5 Audio Component, so you would need to create one. It's easy. A dialogue selects the audio path from the DAM, and the HTML produced looks something like this: 

 

<audio controls>
  <source src="/dam/my-site/audio/rock/hello-world.ogg" type="audio/ogg">
  <source src="/dam/my-site/audio/rock/hello-world.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
  Your browser does not support the audio element.
</audio>

 

Make sure your Asset Upload Restriction Configuration is configured - https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/6-3/assets/using/configuring-asset-upload-restrictions.ht...

Once the HTML5 Audio Component is finished, you add the "allowed components" within your static templates via design dialogue or policies for your editable templates, so your content authors can start to use this content component in their blog articles.

I hope this helps.
