I want to upload sound files to my site.
If I make an object on my site that links to a sound file, then some browsers play the file in quicktime directly on the site, while other browsers download the file to the computer...
Is there a simple way to make it, so that the sound file will always play directly on the site, so the user can only listen, but not actually download the file to his computer?
(without having to use flash or something like that... I would like to keep my site in simple html and css)

Thanks!

if you just want it to play in the background then i suggest you use flash to deliver it

just import it in a flash file with a 1px canvas and embed it in the page

if you dont want to use flash then you need a to invoke an inbedded player
