When I wanted to put a mp3 file on my BLOG, I met a problem. I can only put a link instead of a playing control panel.
Now, I got a way to make it works as what I want.

the embed html

below is the example html code for the embed tag

<embed src="soundfile.mid" hidden="false" border="0" width="310" height="45" autostart="true" autoplay="true" loop="true" volume="75%">

Break down of the example html source code shown as below:

how embed works
how the embed attributes work
src=”soundfile.mid” the url of the file
hidden=”false” shows the controls
hidden=”true” hides the controls
width=”310″ height=”45″
the dimensions of the control measured in pixels, play around with these
autostart=”true” autoplay=”true”
if set to true play automatically on load
autostart=”false” autoplay=”false”
if set to false do not play
loop=”true” if false play once only, if true repeat constantly
volume=”75%” set the volume as a percentage

  7. I still think it is very easy to embed music into the webpage.
    1) upload the music file to your site or some place, and you will get the url point to this file.
    2)use this url in the html code above.
    Note: This url should be accessed directly from internet if you want anyone can hear it.
