I am having a problem getting a background sound to play in the web browsers of Mac.
Actually what I would like to do is a sound should be played auotmatically once a web page is loaded without clicking on anything to play the sound. I have used the tag and this is only works fine in IE, not for other web browsers in Mac. I have tried using the tags <embed> and <noembed><bgsound></noembed>, but the background sound is not played when I opened the HTML page in Mac.
Hope someone could give me some idea to solve the problem.
Thanks in advance.
These are the HTML code:
<embed src="Testing.mp3" hidden=true autostart=true> <noembed><bgsound src="Testing.mp3"></noembed>

please ntoe that playing background music is kinda considered amateurish. I would advise against that. It increases page load time and personally, i find it annoying
as alexis said, get it to a .wav file and see if it works.

Please don't, or my Pooh will spawn little green monkies at you.
No really, even if converting it to a wav works, the file will be an unwieldy size, and a lot of people run audio processes in the background while browsing, so they would conflict. If you really feel the need to use audio, embed it into a flash applet, that's the best way to do it IMHO.

bhanson, what do u mean by "embed it into a flash applet"? Is it the only way to solve my problem? Could you give me some idea?

It was a simple, easy way to allow the users to turn the music off if they didn't like it.
Use music if you like, but give an easy way to turn it off.

Look you can use html however it has to be in WAV format, why would a browser play MP3??? You can use flash, or java just google it up!!! Either way don't waste your time, I refuse to visit any site with music, I even hate visiting a bands site with flash that doesn't allow me to turn it off!
