This code plays audio when the page loads – user has NO CONTROL!

<EMBED src=”file.wav” autostart=false loop=false volume=100 hidden=true><NOEMBED><BGSOUND src=”file.wav”></NOEMBED>

This code shows the player and gives the user control.

<EMBED src=”file.wav” autostart=true loop=false volume=100 hidden=false><NOEMBED>
