How to play a audio file in android 2.2 browser

I have a web application which will be used in the android tablet browser running 2.2.
In this, I would like to play some audio files of any  android supported formats

I have gone through the link below and tried the mp3 file with bit rate 320 kbps. But it is not playing.

http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/media-formats.html

I tried .wav and avi files, which play on my PC but not in the android browser.

I tried audio and video tags in HTML 5, both are not working.
I read that audio tag is not supported in android 2.2, but the video tag is supported from Android 2.0+. But still it is not working.

Appreciate the Help
Thanks

I read that the audio tag should work from android 2.3 or high,,. but it didn't work for me.
So i used the YahooMediaPlayer to play a mp3 file on my web app..Just worked fine..

Thank you all...

Android 2.2 browser (FroYo) does not support the HTML5 audio tag

HTML5 <audio> tag on Android

Android 2.2 mobile OS  supports full Adobe Flash 10.1
flash might be an option

I tried .swf file with embed tag...... which didn't work..
Is there any flash file formats other than .swf

Just to make sure that there is nothing wrong in the .swf file,  can you provide me a sample .swf file, so that i can try it again..

Audio tag is not supported in 2.2 . But video tag should support from 2.0+

Even the video tag is not working.....

Here is the format i followed......

<video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
    Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

If the video tag is not supported in the browser, then it should give me the above message like, "Your browser does not support the video tag"

I see the message on my PC using internet explorer
But, when i check it on my Android Tablet,  it does not give me any message, page tries to load the video and it just couldn't  and gives me another error message "AN ERROR OCCURRED IN THE VIDEO"
