    Sound files in Netscape

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for a great forum and all the help. Here's today's question. I'm working with sound files on my site (sorry -- can't give a link, it's on an internal development server) and EMBED works fine for IE, but not Netscape. As an alternate for Netscape users, I'm including a link to an M3U file, but it's inelegant beause it launches Windows Media Player and the download manager. So the user has to close two windows before getting back to the main page.

    Question 1: Is there a variable I can set in the link (like "HIDDEN="TRUE" which doesn't work) to hide WMP?

    Here's the link code:
    <a href="dr4.m3u"><font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" color="#003399" size="1">Hear me speak!</font></a>

    Question 2: Is there a better way to embed sound in Netscape? Ideally, I would like the sound to play as the window opens -- no link necessary.

    Thanks again,

    Hi jpcording,

    could you tell us what problem you are having when you EMBED in NN?

    It usually IE that doesn't like EMBED and a backup is needed:
    HTML Code:
    <bgsound src= "sound.wav" loop= "3">
