This method calls the sound player that may be on the user's computer. There is usually some sort of player on most machines. If there is no player, the user's computer may seem to lock up during the time it searches for one. In the end, it may ask the user if a player should be downloaded.

This method will fetch a player from Microsoft for Windows computers. This method will be rewritten and voided if it passes through eBay's description rewriter on the listing form. Do NOT touch the Standard tab or preview the code on the listing screen.

eBay also approves of FLASH files for sound or images (but not for auction description). Here is a coding example of the OBJECT tag that automatically runs a Macromedia player from a remote site.
<OBJECT id="FlashPlayer" width="290" height="135"
<param name="movie" value="http://www.myhost.com/flashfile.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<EMBED src="http://www.myhost.com/flashfile.swf" quality="high"
