Play MP3s in Gmail







Exerpt from Lifehacker

Eryan discovered that Gmail can play MP3s uploaded using the Firefox plug-in Gspace.

I was uploading some MP3s that I wanted to have available without carrying around a thumb drive. After I uploaded the files and the messages containing the MP3's showed up in my inbox, I saw a link next to the files that said 'play.' I clicked it and, lo and behold, a little player (similar to the one Google Video uses) popped up and started playing the file. Could be useful to people who don't want to carry music files around.

Sure enough, it works. Alas, Gmail won't play WMA files, only MP3s. Even so, great tip.

That's a cool tip. I tried using that extention but it did not work at all. Refused to sign in. Later on I faced a similar problem when I tried to go online in MSN Messenger in an O2 xdaII. I did some experiments and concluded that it was not working cos I have a + sign in my password. I guess the GSpace extension also doesn't support special characters in the password. I did not double check but I think this is true.
