How to Embed Mp3 Music on a Website

It is easy to Embed Mp3 Music, Audio Files, or Songs on a Website or Webpage, so that your visitors can choose to play music in the background while they browse your site. This can be accomplished via the html audio tag.

The <audio> HTML element can be used to embed sound in a site. This eliminates the need for your visitors to install additional media player plugins to play music.

Sure you could also embed things like the Windows Media Player, but the code would not function if the user was without Windows Media Player installed on the visitors computer.

Thus, my proposed solution is to use a stand alone audio player that does not require Windows Media Player, Quicktime or any other proprietary media player be installed on the visitors machine. For this I personally prefer using simple audio tags which include a media player with volume controls, and automatic song duration calculation.
