<audio src="http://www.angelfire.com/ga2/petergiles/images/aston.mp3" autoplay>
Your browser does not support the <code>audio</code> element.
Doesn't that play just once anyway by default?
Or did you mean you want to remember the visitor and then not play the sound again when they re-visit? (Would need cookies and a script).
It does, but with player controls, which I had understood that the OP didn't want.
It is also worth pointing out that not all browsers can play mp3 files (for example FireFox and Opera)
I know nothing about audio files but I notice that both the above methods play in Firefox but only the audio tag version doesn't play in Opera.
Ah sorry, I meant the FF 3.5 branch.FF otherwise supports the mp3 format as of v21 (but on Windows only).
I just double checked, it seems I was wrong about Opera:
what i want is for the sound to play when a visitor comes to the page, but as i have several pages on my site i do not want it to play again if they go back to the same page, after they go and if they come back it can play again
