This project was developed with integration in mind, and includes some useful debugging hooks. SoundManager 2 will use Firebug's debug console (or Safari's native console) if available, and debug info will be written in-browser for IE and others.
since you could use SM2 to add sound to all sorts of things.. within reason, of course: Not everything on the web needs to be noisy!
Some examples of real-world use of SoundManager v1/v2, based on feedback I've received:
- Scripted language tutorials
- Spoken word/audio assistance
- Ringtone/music previews
- Musician/artist web site soundtracks
- Web-based chat
