Implementing HTML5 Audio

Purpose: How do you use HTML5 Audio to showcase music or any audio without the user having to install a plug-in on their computer in order for their browsers to head the audio? Use HTML5 Audio like this:

1. Create an mp3 file of music with filename bgmusic.mp3. Move the file into your Websites/project#/media folder

2. Copy and paste this code where you want the audio player to exists relative to your other content.

<audio controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay" id="myAudio"><!-- you can remove the autoplay if you don't want the music to auto start -->
<source src="project#/media/bgmusic.mp3" type="audio/mp3"><!-- Change the # to the correct project number -->

Typical problems:

3. Optional CSS - if you want text to wrap around your player, copy and paste this code in your CSS file

audio {
float: right;/*or left*/
margin: 10px;
