Programming Tips - What's the best way to embed an MP3 track in a page?

Date: 2010jan20 Language: html Platform: web Warning: Use the <audio> tag now Keywords: music, song Q. What's the best way to embed an MP3 track in a page? A. I like this code because its pretty simple and seems to work on nearly every browser:
$title<br> <object type="audio/x-mp3" data="$file" width="300" height="45"> <param name="src" value="$file"> <param name="autoplay" value="false"> <param name="autoStart" value="0"> <!- Fallback -> <a href="$file">Play &gt;</a> </object>
Replace $file with the path to you file - eg my_track.mp3 Replace $title with some text describing your track.
