adding mp3 audio file to website

I found code to add a mp3 file to a website.  I am not familiar with flash so I am kinda winging it.

1. How do I remove the downward facing arrow?
2. How do I remove the excess white space above player?
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=50 height=50
standby="Loading Microsoft® Windows® Media Player components..."
<PARAM NAME="filename" VALUE="oktoberfest.mp3">
<PARAM NAME="autoStart" VALUE="false"> <PARAM NAME="showControls" VALUE="true">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="true"> <PARAM NAME="Autorewind" VALUE="true">
<PARAM NAME="ShowDisplay" VALUE="true"> 
  <EMBED SRC="oktoberfest.mp3" WIDTH=50 HEIGHT=50 autostart=false type="application/x-mplayer2" name=MediaPlayer showcontrols=true showstatusbar=true autorewind=true showdisplay=true filename="oktoberfest.mp3">

You cannot it is built into the flash source.

unless you have the flash source which i'm assuming you do not have.

Vista, Firefox

I would try a different player.

What is the easiest way to add a mp3 audio file to a website?  It is a radio ad that client wants to make available.

Hmmm...I don't want it to auto start.  How do I change the code so the only way it plays is if someone presses the play button?

autostart="false" loop="false"
