<BGSOUND SRC="snd.wav" loop="-1">

<BGSOUND SRC="snd.wav" loop="-1">
I have a sound file to play in my web page, and
the above how I try to do it. it works if
open it from my disk directly. but when i put it in
my ISP allocated directory, and access it from outside
it doesnot work, no sound at all. I am sure I put the
file (wav file) on the same dir as with all other
pictures etc. all pictures show, but sound does not play.
why ?

Normally you would set loop=12 to play something 12 times or loop=infinite, I'm not sure what loop="-1" does.

-1 is infinite ...

have you tried to set the path to the src?  SRC="http://www.yoursite.com/snd.wav"

also, has the file finished downloading?  It must first DL before it can play.  

Also, BGSound only works in Internet Explorer... Use <EMBED SRC="snd.wav"></EMBED> for Netscape...

Make sure the permissions are set properly for the sound file, and make sure the capitilization is correct.  a file named Snd.wav will work on you hard drive in Win 95 even if you refer to it as snd.wav or SND.wav, but on your isp which, if unix, won't work unless referred to with the exact same capitilization.

Also, this is how I use a sound on my web page (it only plays once though):
<EMBED SRC="Lion.wav" NAME="ROAR" VOLUME="60" AUTOSTART="true" HIDDEN="true" MASTERSOUND>

This works for me in Netscape 3,4 and IE 4.

I am sorry but I have to give the credit to jbirk
since he figured that ISP server may be case sensitive.
that was the problem, thanks to both of you. but  if
jbirk replies this back I will give him the points.
