To play audio clips on your site you can use New-PodeWebAudio. The audio can be set to auto-play and loop, and can also accept multiple sources and tracks.

The sources specified can be done so via -Source and New-PodeWebAudioSource. Sources can only be of type MP3, OGG and WAV, and at least one source must be specified:

New-PodeWebCard -Content @(
    New-PodeWebAudio -Name 'example' -Source @(
        New-PodeWebAudioSource -Url ''

Which looks like below:


Any optional tracks you wish to specify can be done via -Track and New-PodeWebMediaTrack. Tracks can only be of type VTT, and can be used for subtitles, captions, metadata, etc.

The -Language is mandatory if the track's -Type is subtitles, and should be a 2-letter language code.

New-PodeWebCard -Content @(
    New-PodeWebAudio -Name 'example' -Source @(
        New-PodeWebAudioSource -Url ''
    ) `
    -Tracks @(
        New-PodeWebMediaSource -Url '/some/url/path/english.vtt' -Language 'en' -Title 'English' -Type 'subtitles' -Default


The -Width of an audio element has the default unit of %. If 0 is specified then 20% is used instead. Any custom value such as 100px can be used, but if a plain number is used then % is appended.


The following specific events are supported by the Audio element, and can be registered via Register-PodeWebMediaEvent:

Name Description

Pause Fires when the audio is paused
