Cross-browser Media Player object/embed code ...
<div><OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" CODEBASE="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab# Version=5,1,52,701" STANDBY="Loading Microsoft Windows® Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject" width="280" height="46">
<param name="fileName" value="http://Storage1.Colony1.Net/XXXXX/Content/file.wma">
<param name="animationatStart" value="true">
<param name="transparentatStart" value="true">
<param name="autoStart" value="true">
<param name="showControls" value="true">
<param name="Volume" value="-300">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="http://Storage1.Colony1.Net/XXXXX/Content/file.wma" name="MediaPlayer1" width=280 height=46 autostart=1 showcontrols=1 volume=-300>
</OBJECT</div>
3) File Path
Values indicated in red above code should be changed to the URL you save in step 1.

4) Other settings
All values indicated in blue in the above code can be changed if needed. Autostart settings determine if the music starts playing automatically or not. If you want it not to start automatically, and you would rather have the site visitor press the play button to start/stop the music/audio, then change both those values to false and 0, respectively. BOTH values must be changed, to ensure that the music plays the same way in all major browsers. Volume settings are just that... sets the volume level. A value of -300 is about mid-range. You can change that too if you like. BOTH values must be changed to be the same values, to ensure that the volume level is the same in all major browsers.

5) Click "Process Page Update" to save your changes.
