The docs say that when you specify a path in ig.Sound's constructor, you are free to use 'foo.mp3', 'foo.ogg' or 'foo.*', and the sound manager will pick the correct format based on the browser.

In IE9, using 'foo.ogg' will cause it to try and load oggs, which IE doesn't handle. Switching over to 'foo.*' fixes it.

I know, very minor, but if anyone else hits this, there's a simple fix. Loving that my game runs like a champ in all browsers!

funny i still get errors, "failed to load resource sound.*'

any hints? I have ogg and mp3 files

the fix was to actually use mp3 notation, instead of .* notation ( funny how it's supposed to work with .* )

This is all very strange. The file ending shouldn't matter at all. Maybe it's a caching issue, somehow?!
