I'm making a showcase type webpage to go on my website that will let my friends and family watch my videos, look the photos/pictures I've taken or made, and listen to my music.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit, and I use Google Chrome as my default browser. I have problem playing the music on my website.

So pretty much, I have uploaded my music to Dropbox, and I then I use the plugin-embed tool in Dreamweaver CS4 to insert the music. I have it set to autostart="false".

But, when I test the page out in my browser, it for some reason won't load the controls correctly. Also, it disregards the autostart="false" statement and plays it anyway. Here's my code:
........................................
........................................
........................................
<body>
<div id="wrapper">
<div id="mainbody">
<p id="title">First of Few ▬ Life</p>
<div id="thumbnail">
<p><a href=" " onclick="MM_showHideLayers('songs','','hide','albumart','', 'show')"><img src="thumbnails/firstoffew--life.png" alt="icon" width="250" height="100" title="Click to view the album art." /></a></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
</div>
<div id="songs">
<embed autostart="false" src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17921516/music/First of Few -- Life/1. Nostalgic Games.mp3" width="32" height="32"></embed>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Also, the controls don't even seem to work. Is there any way to get the QuickTime plugin to work with Chrome? I'm using it for Firefox, but I don't like Firefox anymore. Help?:confused:
