HTML Attribute for <EMBED ...>
LOOP =TRUE |FALSE |# of loops

LOOP indicates how many times to play the sound or movie. In general, LOOP indicates if the sound or movie should (TRUE) or should not (FALSE) loop continuously.

Sounds

For sounds, both MSIE and Netscape recognize TRUE and FALSE. FALSE is the default.

This Code Makes This
<EMBED 
 SRC="/sounds/helloo.wav"
LOOP=FALSE
 HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=144
 >
<EMBED 
 SRC="/sounds/helloo.wav"
LOOP=TRUE
 HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=144
 >

Netscape also allows you to loop a finite number of times. (For MSIE use PLAYCOUNT) This code tells Netscape to play the sound three times. MSIE plays the sound continuously.

This Code Makes This
<EMBED 
 SRC="/sounds/helloo.wav"
LOOP=3
 HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=144
 >

You can combine this with MSIE's PLAYCOUNT attribute (which in MSIE takes precedence over LOOP) to tell both browsers to loop three times:

This Code Makes This
<EMBED 
 SRC="/sounds/helloo.wav"
LOOP=3
 PLAYCOUNT=3
 HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=144
 >

Movies

LOOP can be set to TRUE or FALSE for movies.

This Code Makes This
<EMBED 
 SRC="/graphics/heart.avi"
LOOP=FALSE
 HEIGHT=144 WIDTH=117
 >
<EMBED 
 SRC="/graphics/heart.avi"
LOOP=TRUE
 HEIGHT=144 WIDTH=117
 >

We have found in researching LOOP that Netscape has several inconsistencies among media types. For example, we have not been able to get MPEGs for loop reliably. As with everything involving <EMBED ...>, be careful what you rely on.
