I have a website with embeded mps files. On ie9, you can see that it works fine; the media file shows up, you can press play, and it works.
Here's the problem: In firefox, the mp3 player doesnt show up, and a pop-up message says that additional plugins are needed. When I choose "install missing plugins", the message shows that I have to install apple quicktime. For some reason my borwser does not allow me to install the plugin, and I get a message "internet explorer blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors" -firefox also does not allow me to install it.
Here's the url to my site, in case that helps: www.beatlesongprofiles.com
Anyone know a work-around? How can I either install apple quicktime, or embed the mp3 file without needing to download apple quicktime. (ie9 works fine without apple quicktime)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Fx decided not to support mp3.
but an 'ogg vorbis' copy might work.

Firefox does not support mp3 format
Wave files are inappropriate for web use do to their size
I agree with Troy, ogg vorbis is the format you want to use for Firefox. Unfortunately, IE does not support .ogg, so you will have to use note both sources in your code …
