the m3u and rm files read as such
i have found that i can not use my domain name for the mp3 and the ram-ra extensions are mixed up.
im currently trying to rewrite everything using css just to clean things up but i dont see how any that would make the browser go blank.
again thanks for the help

Don't worry about the post. You can read more in the Terms of Service [webmasterworld.com]
I have recreated your problem here - I don't have the same issue you describe - the audio file opens in my audio player within the page - In my case it's quicktime (firefox).
From what I can gather some audio files require the server mime type to be set up to play them - this is evident for mp3 files. Other problems with mp3 files might occur too like firewall blockage.
You could consider two other options:
Ironically the Embed tag is deprecated and is not standards compliant but the Object tag is.
So the choice is up to you, use <object> - it's standards compliant code with lousy support or <embed> with wider support but invalid.
There is one option to make the object tag work - a technique that nests object tags that's valid html and is supported in IE and other browsers - I have never used it though as I don't do much with Audio - I'll see if I can dig up the bookmark.
