I have a site built in frontpage and want to include some background music. Midi files are tacky and wanted to run a real song. What format does it have to be in, mp3, etc... is there any sites out there that have any free background songs other than electronic sounding midi. Thanks

As far as I know it has to be a WAV format. You can embed the sound into the HTML and set it to auto start.

<embed src="yoursound.wav" autostart=True hidden=true name="sound1" width="128" height="128">

I did a page where people click on the door or bell and it plays the sound. People think it's funny.Knock on my door. It's linked to my server and actually makes repeats the sound in my house.

Thanks, I'll use that. An MP3 instead if WAV should make the pages load faster.

You know, call me an idiot, I addressed my reply to the wrong person, but hey, if it works, so be it.

But anyway, Modern, I think the code is very similar to yours, justy a few settings are different.
