Hi, I'm trying to place an MP3 audio file into my InDesign doc (a few pages long) with the goal being that when published online my presentation will play background music. I have placed the audio file with no poster image (I don't want a 'play' button to show), set it to play upon page load and loop. However, when I open the published file on the browser an ugly button play appears which has to be activated for the music to play (i.e. it doesn't just play upon page load). It then continues to play when you go onto the next page but the music starts again from the beginning! Any ideas? I simply want background music to play for the duration of my online presentation, without having to be activated, and to play continuously without starting back at the beginning every time. Maybe publish online can't handle audio very well? Thanks in advance!

as far as i know, this ist not possible. Because you're jumping from page to page. The play button is one thing, you could also place it in the background or else.
