Internet Explorer 11 cannot play audio file with data in Base64

You can play audio files with data in Base64 in HTML 5. Of course not all browsers support this feature. I just found out that IE 11.0, the latest browser cannot. Mozilla Firefox 26.0 can and Safari 5.1.7 cannot.

Safari 5.1.7 does not even display the audio player control.

IE 11 displays the control with the error, Invalid Source.

But Mozilla plays it cool!!!

You can review the details here:
