Embedding bird song (MP3s) in the Opus (1 Viewer)

The syntax for embedding mp3s has changed slightly.

Rather than using <flashmp3> like this:

<flashmp3>Alberts Lyrebird 090709b.mp3</flashmp3><br />
''[[Media:Alberts Lyrebird 090709b.mp3|Listen in an external program]]''<br />

You now use the {{audio}} template, like this:

{{Audio|Alberts Lyrebird 090709b.mp3}}

The template includes the 'Listen in an external program' link so that can be removed as well. I've updated Albert's Lyrebird as an example.

I was really hoping to find a way to update the pages with bird song automatically but unfortunately nothing I tried worked, so as you find them it'd be great if you can update them. Really sorry to create work like that!

OK Thanks Ollie.

We'll work our way through them when we've got the Editing Permissions sorted.
