    it's not possible to play MP3's on websites, nor should u ever. MP3s are large, between 3-6 megs on average, which would take the average 56.6 kbs modem around 1/2 hour to download. as a rule of thumb, u should keep pages below 50kb, including images and sound if u have them. there's a reason why very few pages have midi's even, as surfers are an impatient lot.

    on the other hand, if u have a good reason for wanting to put up mp3s as sound (for example, the people viewing your website are all on your company intranet), then u will have to convert the mp3s to wav, which will be around 30-40 mbs. thats why, even when people put sound up, they use midi's. hope that helps

    Thanx for the reply - I understand all that you say...
    I needed/wanted to place a much shortened song "intro" onto my site.. I can change MP3 to WAV but still need the syntax, is it the same as embedding a midi..?

    hi

    yes actually there is a way to play mp3's off of your website all you need to do is upload the mp3 to your website and the code for it is <embed width="128" height="128" src="http://www.yoursite.com/yoursong.mp3"><noembed>Your
    browser does not support this plug-in.</noembed></p>

    just replace yoursite with your site and your song with your song only thing i find wrong with this is that users need to press play to play
