HTML embed autoplay="false", but still plays automatically


On the front page of this website, there is a sticky post titled “National Radio Advertising Campaign ForACURE” which contains the following HTML:

<embed type="audio/x-wav" src="" autoplay="false" height="20" width="200" autostart="false">

However, when I load this website in Chrome v31.0.1650.57 m, the audio plays automatically, even though both autoplay and autostart are set to false.

Is there a better cross browser method of embedding this audio?


Chrome doesn’t seem to understand true and false.
Use autostart="1" and autostart="0" instead.
