It has been a while, but I think

<embed>somefile.mid</embed>
for a MIDI file or

<embed>movie.avi</embed>
for an avi movie.

embed will work as long as one has an app that runs a midi,avi,wav or mpeg file on their machine - if the end-user doesn't have anything to run the file with then both browsers will give you an error-

if the user is going to just click a link that runs either a midi or avi - why not just use
<a href="sound.midi">Sound</a>

<embed> is the tag that was used in NS3, it is part of thr HTML3.2 standard.  Actually with newer browsers it is being replaced with <object>.

Technically, <embed> specifies an arbitrary data object to be embedded in the document-a sound file, a special format graphic, or a spreadsheet for example.  Display of the embedded object usually requires the use of a plugin.

Most modern browsers support mid/avi files, but this was not always true; hence the <embed>.
