Music Files

Just for sake of learning how, I recently put background music tags to my html code for my website on Awardspace like this:

<bgsound src=Trio_Con_Brio-Bach_Double_Violin_Concerto_1st_mvt.mp3 loop=1>

(I found out mp3 files are banned items so it didn't work. No problem there. :) )However, it worked when I viewed my page from my PC via "file" and "open", that is, not through Awardspace. But now it I can't even hear the music. I don't know whether it's a code problem, a file problem, or a program problem. I updated my Windows Media Player during all of this, but I don't know whether or not this is relevent to my problem.I joined a "music host" (iWebMusic) similar to Photobucket.com; they give me the tags to paste into my htmllike this:

<!--Begin iWebMusic.com Code --><script language="javascript">var nid = "39406"; var dj = "1";</script><script src="http://www.iwebmusic.com/s/1.js"></script><!--End iWebMusic.com Code -->

But I would perferably like to use the "bgsound src" or "embed" tags.How can I fix it so that I can hear the music again when I test my code in action via "file" and "open"? :)

Seriously! Do not use background-music! If they're not able to start the music themself, they'll leave your Web site.
Look: Just because music is annoying doesn't mean it shouldn't be learned. :) I don't like music in backgrounds either...BUT--I need help to know how to do it properly, at least.Besides I haven't marketed myself enough to have visitors yet. I'm still experimenting. Please be reasonable with people who want to learn, fellow andersmoen. :) iWebMusic does NOT give the user option to control the sound with a "start and stop button"--that's why I tried the "embed" tags...but something happened to where it doesn't work.
delete attributes like height and width if you made it hidden
I did that too...I've experimented with various codes but I still can't get the sound when I go though "file" and "open" on the toolbar.Like I said it worked before, and I would like to know whether it's a file problem, a code problem, or a program problem (i.e., updating Windows Media Player).Why doesn't the "embed" tags work anymore?Btw, how do I convert MP3 files to MIDI?

Thanks...that gives me plenty to experiment with.But, I'm guessing that the "object" tag only applies with videos.My problem is: I experimented with BOTH "background src" and "embed" tags worked when I FIRST experimented with them by opening up the TOOLBAR "file" and "open..."--It worked.Pardon me for sounding redundant, but what caused it to not work any more when I test my code in action?Is it because I updated the WMP program? Here's a link to my website.As mentioned, I would prefer to NOT to go through iWebMusic, but since the codes don't work anymore this is what I have to do.Can ANYONE relate to this oddity of "broken codes"? :)
