Background music doesn't play when PowerPoint SlideShow plays from a web page

I have a powerpoint presentation that has background music and other recorded text.  The background music plays continuously throughout the slide show.  It was inserted on the first slide using Insert->Movie and Sounds->Sound from file.  There is also embedded recorded text.  Everything works perfectly when I play the slide show on my computer locally.

I uploaded the slide show and background music to a folder on my webserver and created a link on a page for the slide show.  The slide show plays when the link is clicked but the background music does not play.  The embedded recorded text plays just fine.  How can I get the background music to play?

The only way background music plays with recorded sound is if it is linked instead of embedded.  Therefore you must also send the sound file with the presentation in order for it to play:

I thought I had uploaded the background music but I uploaded the wrong file.  I uploaded the correct file and now it works.  Thanks.
