    Embedded .mp3 won't play in FireFox.
    « on: March 13, 2013, 03:42:48 AM »
    Hi there.  I have a website with an index page that has a short embedded .mp3 that starts automatically - in Internet Explorer.  It won't play in FireFox.  I have tried the "Applications" tab in the Tools menu, to no avail.  Anyone know what I have missed?

    Thanks!

    There are different ways to embed a audio file into a web page.Could you provide a bit of the code i n HTML? Or is it JavaScript?

      MP3 does not work in Firefox unless you have some plug-in that will handle it.
      One way ins to install QuickTime from Apple. The Windows version.

      If Java is used for sound, if can not be MP3.

      A player can be put on the server. Or you can embed and object that plash MP3. Often a Flash or Shock wave file.

      EDIT: A few months ago this was on Mozilla:
      Firefox no longer plays embedded MP3's.

        You might consider getting thing you can put in the page. If is a kind of Flash application
         It lets user stop or reset the music or voice Iver. I have used wimpy MP3 player.
        http://www.wimpyplayer.com/
        Ir embeds your file into a SWF.
