I have an audio file that plays like it should on the Mac (Safari and Firefox) but not on Win XP however the player image doesn't load on Mac or Win XP either.

Can anyone see what could be wrong with the following?

I'm using Doc type 4.01 transitional

is the m4a file only for the Mac?

<object width="300" height="42">
<param name="src" value="sound/filename.m4a">
<param name="autoplay" value="true">
<param name="controller" value="true">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">
<embed src="sound/filename.m4a"
autostart="true" loop="true" volume="100"
controller="true" hidden="false" width="300"
height="42" bgcolor="#000000">

My guess is that the borwsers don't have a plugin installed to play that file format, or they have been set up not to play them.

try embedding the media player and specifying the MIME type

<object id="quicktimeplayer" width="300" height="42" classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" type="audio/mp4">
<param name="src" value="sound/filename.m4a" />
<param name="controller" value="true" />
<param name="autoplay" value="true" />
<param name="type" value="audio/mp4" />
<embed src="sound/filename.m4a" width="300" height="42" type="audio/mp4" autoplay="true" controller="true" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
