How to embed music in HTML
There are several ways to embed music, midi's, mp3 and wav files on a webpage. First you need to know the name of the music file you wish to use.
HTML Music Codes
The first html music code gives your visitor the choice if they want to hear the music or not.
<a href="yourmidname.mid">Click here to play music </a>
Make sure you upload the music file to your server. Your visitor will need something to play the music on such as a music player like Real Player or Windows Media Player. Otherwise, they will not hear the music. However, that is not a problem nowadays as virtually every PC and desktop has one.
Website Music plays automatically on page load. This is cross browser compatible
Embed this HTML music code in the <head> of your html document so music starts automatically when the page loads. Your visitor has no choice to hear it or not and there is no option to turn it off. Using the "embed" command makes your music compatible with Netscape.
<embed src="yourmusic.mid"> <noembed> <bgsound src="yourmusic.mid"> </noembed>
To embed music on your website with a shut off button
You can embed music into your page so it starts automatically when someone views your page and have a small image where your visitor can turn it off.
<embed src="yourmusic.mid" width=25 height=25 autostart=false repeat=true loop=true></embed>
<embed src="yourmusic.mid" width="140" height="40" autostart="false" loop="FALSE"></embed>
