Re: Need Help

The problem comes from the URL of your mp3 file.

If this file is in the same directory of your extension, its URL should be:


This will work in qlikview desktop but not on qlikview server. You'll have to use this javascript code to define an URL that will work for both environment:

var url  = Qva.Remote + (Qva.Remote.indexOf('?') >= 0 ? '&' : '?') + 'public=only&name=Extensions/MY-EXTENSION/sample.mp3';
