I am wanting to embed a mp3 onto a html page. Im using Dreamweaver 8. I click on insert/media.plugin and then browse to my mp3 file.

plugin shows up on page, but if a hit play from with in Dreamweaver I get this message.....

"unable to find the plugin that handles this media type"

Also, when I preview the page in a browser the mp3 plays but the controller is visible, even though i have controller="false"

this is the code dreamweaver inserted

<embed src="audio/InMyArms_VOCAL201.mp3" width="0" height="0" autoplay="true" controller="false"></embed>

Do i need to install the "plugin" in Dreamweaver? also, why is the controll still visible?

Most likely and I would say because Adobe is good at giving you things you can't use... although this is much better in CS3

What happens when you preview in your browser? Your brower's pugin should deal with it and once you uppload to the server it should be ok...

F12 to preview

yes, when i upload to server it is ok, but I can still see the controller, thats why i made the size 0px by 0px.. but it should be hidden
