I know that for AVI file it work. So do you have a plug-IN for MIDI file?

Try AUTOSTART=true instead of AUTORUN=true.

Is thefile.mid an existing midi file?

If your server isn't configured for MIME types correctly, the file won't play either.  (Unless you use a plug-in).

If you want to use Crescendo, here is the proper format:
<OBJECT ID=Crescendo
CLASSID="clsid:0FC6BF2B-E16A-11CF-AB2E-0080AD08A326"
HEIGHT=55
WIDTH=200>
<PARAM NAME="Song" VALUE="thefile.mid">
<EMBED TYPE="music/crescendo"
SONG="action3.mid"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.liveupdate.com/dl.html"
HEIGHT=55
WIDTH=200>
</OBJECT>
