My Quicktime Player (Version 10.3 727.4) can play mp3 files without any problems, but when I use AppleScript I get an error message:
The document “audio.mp3” could not be opened. The file may be damaged or may not be a movie file that is compatible with QuickTime Player.
I've been trying different sound files, different compressions, aif, wav, with the same result.
A minimum script goes:
set audioFile to "/Path/to/the/audio.mp3" tell application "QuickTime Player" activate open audioFile play the front document end tell
Does anyone have any suggestions of what I'm doing wrong or any other solution to script a media player.
