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
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
standby="Loading Media Player" Type="application/x-oleobject">
<PARAM name="Filename" value="time.wma">
<EMBED type="application/x-mplayer2" src="file.wax" name="MediaPlayer"
height=45> </OBJECT>

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

A midget fortune teller who escapes from prison is a small

...that should retain the long link (not the '<' '>')
but this should also do the trick..
