I have used music (midi files) on my web site. I previously had some help in getting the code to turn the music on and off using mediaplayer. I would prefer to use a simple on/off button or drop down menu so the music is on when the page starts but viewers have the option to turn it off. I would like it to play on all browsers if poss. Am I looking at the impossible or does anyone know how to do this.

i found the below code and it is the button im looking for for my web page. When I insert it into my page and try to use the button I get an error message saying media player can't open this file (the music plays but the message comes when trying to turn it off). Do I need any more code to use this type of button. Is it possible for someone to look at my homepage and see if I can change the current button to the one shown below

<form method="get" action="http://URL.mid"><input type="submit" value="Music On/Off" text="blue"></font>

I would suggest using a Flash control, but that might be more complicated (depending on your comfort level with flash).

I absolutely HATE when music starts playing when I open a site....
I really really really (^nth power) hate that.

Since I use flash controls for all multimedia (move encoding, sound, etc), or at least as much as possible, I don't know the answer using normal HTML, other than to urge you for the sake of the whole world to not use MIDI files... ever....
