Embedded Audio player in web pages

I am hoping someone here may know what would be a good audio player to embed in webpages.  I've tried several players, but haven't had any luck getting something to work in Windows 7 Firefox 11 browser.  The buttons don't work for me, but can start and stop the files using the space bar.  I am also finding the page playing all the songs simultaneously in PC Chrome. Haven't had trouble on a Mac.

Is there any all around good player for mp3s for the web?

Here is my page:http://americanart.si.edu/luce/mixtape/

This is the first player used:
<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" width="200" height="20">

<param name="src" value="/luce/mixtape/audio/TrainingWheels.mp3" /> <param name="controller" value="true" /> <param name="autoplay" value="false" /> <param name="autostart" value="0" /> <param name="pluginspage" value="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/" />

<!--[if !IE]> <-->

<object type="audio/x-mpeg" data="/luce/mixtape/audio/TrainingWheels.mp3" width="200" height="20"> <param name="src" value="/luce/mixtape/audio/TrainingWheels.mp3" /> <param name="controller" value="true" /> <param name="autoplay" value="false" /> <param name="autostart" value="0" /> <param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/" /> <embed src="/luce/mixtape/audio/TrainingWheels.mp3" type="audio/x-mpeg" width="200" height="20" autostart="false" controller="true" ></embed> </object>

<!--> <![endif]-->
</object>

This is the second quicktime player (used in the remain 4 songs):
<embed width="200" height="20" pluginspage="/quicktime/download/" autoplay="false" src="/luce/mixtape/audio/MistyEyes.mp3"></embed><br /> <p class="noindent">

Thank you!

Using Windows 7 and FF 11.0 the page works perfectly for me.  All the bars appear in the right places and the music plays when I click the appropriate button.  Of course, I can start two audio streams at the same time and this sounds goofy, but you can't fix goofy client behavior.  In Chrome all of the embedded audio files started playing at the same time.  Inmy experience, it's always been better to put one audio file on the page at a time, and just provide links if you want to present multiple audio files to the client.

See http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Famericanart.si.edu%2Fluce%2Fmixtape%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

You might want to consider a couple of things.  Are all of the <object> tags closed?  Consider adding "type=" attributes to the object.  Maybe type="audio/mpeg" or type="video/wmv"?  Not sure, but those should be worth testing.

Best regards, ~Ray
