Making music play automatically (WindowsMedia)

This isn't really a Javascript question - apologies if inappropriate-
I don't know where to ask.

This code in my website works fine on some pcs - it automatically
loads media player and plays the music file when the page opens.
But on others, media player opens but the music file won't download.
As far as I can tell the setup of my laptop & desktop are similar (W98
2ed)
Why won't the following code work correctly on my laptop - and
presumably a cross section of other computers?

<OBJECT id="MediaPlayer" width=240 Height=45
classid="clsid:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95F"
standby="Loading Media Player" Type="application/x-oleobject">
<PARAM name="Filename" value="time.wma">
<EMBED type="application/x-mplayer2" src="file.wax" name="MediaPlayer"
width=240
height=45> </OBJECT>
Thanks

Your best best would be at a browser-specific NG or the one dedicated to
WMP and/or one of the ones at microsoft.

Microsoft has a newsserver (msnews) that can be subscribed to if you
prefer, but it looks like you're posting from google.

...that should retain the long link (not the '<' '>')
but this should also do the trick..
<http://groups.google.com/groups?group=microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player>
or even
<http://google.com/groups?group=microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player>
