Why this PHP code is not working?

Can anyone tell me why this PHP code is not working?

<?PHP
$play = "filename.mp3";
?>
<embed src="<?php echo $play ?>" id="id_geonews" type="application/x-mplayer2" stretchtofit="true" bgcolor="#000000" url="<?php echo $play ?>" name="geonews" height="64" width="220"></td>


Without PHP code is working:
<embed src="filename.mp3" id="id_geonews" type="application/x-mplayer2" stretchtofit="true" bgcolor="#000000" url="filename.mp3" name="geonews" height="64" width="220"></td>

You're missing the semicolon after $play.
Try this code once:
<embed src="<?php echo $play; ?>" id="id_geonews" type="application/x-mplayer2" stretchtofit="true" bgcolor="#000000" url="<?php echo $play; ?>" name="geonews" height="64" width="220"></td>

Open in new window

Or you can simplify the code like this:
<?PHP
$play = "filename.mp3";
?>
<embed src="<?=$play?>" id="id_geonews" type="application/x-mplayer2" stretchtofit="true" bgcolor="#000000" url="<?=$play?>" name="geonews" height="64" width="220"></td>
