Firefox is not playing web site music


I am using Mozilla Firefox (I love it). I know that some web sites I visited/visit with IE have music as soon as you enter web page. Firefox is not playing music. Does anyone know why is that?

El Camino,

You need a media player for the embedded music files on those sites. Most likely they are midi files. I would recommend Crescendo to play embedded midi files. It is freeware, and can be downloaded here:
http://easylistening.freeyellow.com/crescendo.html

If you have Quick Time installed it will also play the embedded midi file, but it also has very poor audio quality.

It depends on which HTML tag they use for the music. The <bgsound src="yourmusic.mid"> one is IE-specific. Only the embed tag will work with Firefox.

I have half a dozen players which can play mp3 files. Why don't give us a link, so that it can be tested. But shadowhawk is right, it may depend on the coding.

Thanks to all of you.
I am from Bosnia. This is one of the links, it is in Bosnian language. This site has beautiful articles which are against Saudi terrorists - wahhabis.

El Camino,

This site is using a Microsoft proprietary sound tag, and that's why you hear no music. This is the tag:
< bgsound src="http://www.ehlisunet.com/mp3/track_09.mp3" loop="-1" >

Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox do not recognize the bgsound tag.

If you want to hear the MP3 file, then paste this link in the Location Bar:
http://www.ehlisunet.com/mp3/track_09.mp3
You can then download the file and listen to it.

Ramona

I could not even get to the original website, but I can play the mp3 file the way Ramona posted it. I am using Irfan View as an mp3 player (isn't Irfan Bosnian?)
By the way most of the music is in Real Player format.

El Camino,

The Location Bar is the field at the top of your page, which show the current URL. Clear the field, then paste the link for the MP3, click enter.

I used computers for almost 10 years, and have been on the web for at least six, and I found out, a few days ago, that it is necessary to clear the location bar, i.e. the http:// etc go. I just click on the part which I want to replace, and either type in the new address, or paste it. It will replace the old one, then enter.

Ramona or anyone else.

Does anyone of you know what is the string
(beside this one <bgsound src="http://www.ehlisunet.com/mp3/track_09.mp3" loop="-1">)
one should write on the web page so that Firefox will automatically play this music?

Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
