Hello.I´ve been making my first html page and
I´m trying to implement an audio file in the background of the page without the control section. I have something like this,but the audio doesn´t plays:

<audio autoplay loop>
<source src="audio_route" type="audio/mp3">

Any help will be welcome : )

    Here's help: DON'T DO THAT SHIT. It's totally annoying and one of the things you just never do, just like auto-playing video.

    Browser permissions will also block auto play.

    But out of experience - the only sound that should be blasting through my headphones, is the sound I explicitly expect to be blasting through my headphones.

    As for your HTML:
    It works fine, as long as the path/to/file.MP3 is right and your browser isn't blocking it.

    Make sure your windows xp Maschine supports mp3‘s

    @Fast-Nop I know it's not a good idea, but it's just to know how to do it.

    @C0D4 okay, I see that is not a good ideai think I will not implement it in the future.

    @guarrions I'd guess you have the wrong filename. The extension is missing. Also, the type doesn't look correct, should be "audio/mpeg".

    NEVER do that

    Maybe see how they did this one:


    It is triggered though.

    Btw., it also fucks up accessibility because blind people relying on screenreaders suddenly get drowned in unexpected sound.

    @Fast-Nop I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the help.

    just NO. dont do any fucking autoplay shit. ask yourself: did user asked to play any media? it should only be on demand.

    Since when devrant became stackoverflow?

    Create an audio. Create a button. Tie audio playback start to that button’s onclick. Now click() the button.

    ...and go confront your boss about it. Audio autoplay almost always means ragequit.

    firstly, don't do that shit.

    secondly, this is devrant, not stackoverflow.
