Wait! I see you are using Tripod. Never used them but when I used to use Angelfire or Geocities you had to change the code to point to the sound file. i.e Instead of just putting "test.wav" you had to put: http://www.tripod.co...rname/test.wav... like that. I remember having to change the code every time. Worth a try?

There should be two sound files on this page, do either work for you? Just a slight variation of the code.

I set up a tripod account and uploaded a couple different sounds, one .wav and one .mp3. Both play for me in IE and netscape. What browser are you using?
Can you get either one of the sounds on here?

I think so too. Putting them up on tripod is a piece of cake.

Now I've forgotten what kind of file you were using, was it an .mp3? You have to make sure you've got the right compression on those or they won't play. When I make an .mp3 from a .wav file I use 56kbit/s, 22,050hz stereo and they play everywhere.

That's incorrect HTML :tazz:

<embed src="The_URL_To_File.mp3" hidden="false" autostart="true" loop="false" height="##" width="##">

Change whatever..

Hi MR0624,
I can see that you've given heaps of different html a try and failed so I'm not sure that this will work. But it looks different to the other ones listed here so give this a try:-

Option 1.
<bgsound src="test.wav" loop=infinite>
And make sure that you upload the test.wav file to the same folder as the index.html file that you wrote the code on.

Option 2.
<bgsound src="index_files/test.wav" loop=infinite>
And make sure that you have the test.wav file in the index_files folder and upload that folder to the same place as the index.html file that you wrote the code on.

(Your .html file may not necessarily be called index.html or index_files folder, just as test.wav may not be the actual name of your .wav file)
THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE

Check out my website- >Just for Fun< Click anywhere on the first page to skip the flash intro.
It has background music, and the above option 2. is how I did it.
But option 1 should also work.

(Dont pay too much mind at how slow my pages open up as there are alot of graphics on the pages and my .wav
files are also quite large, point is... they work)

Hope this Helps,

Willow :tazz:
