    Playing a sound on load

    guillox1
      Can anyone tell me how to play a sound only once when load. At the present it is an exe. file, so It is asking me to download the file.... I just want it to play on load and I dont want to hear it again if refreshed it. Thank you.

          Flash is your safest and most universal option. Set a cookie so it
          never plays twice per visitor.

          In case you don't know, audio on websites is annoying and amateurish
          99% of the time.

            I concur with Mister Mustard and would add that using an .exe file on your
            page for something like this is very bad practice. Executable files can
            contain malware or viruses that could threaten visitors computers. If I saw
            that on an unknown site, I'd run like the wind and never come back.
