HTML allows you to embed plug-ins in a Web page using the EMBED tag. This tag lets you embed multimedia in a Web page and play it while opening the page.
The EMBED tag is supported by Internet Explorer as well as Netscape Navigator. It is also supported across the Windows and Mac platforms.
The EMBED tag uses the three mandatory attributes, namely src, height, and width.
Following is an example of using the EMBED tag.
<EMBED src="Music.mp3" width=600 height=100></EMBED>
In the above example, we have defined the src attribute to specify the source multimedia file to be played while the Web page loads in the browser. We have also defined the height and width attributes to specify the height and width of the embedded multimedia component in the page, respectively.
Following table lists various attributes of the EMBED tag in HTML.
|height||Specifies the height of the embedded component|
|hspace||Sets the horizontal padding around the tag|
|type||Specifies the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (MIME) type for the components|
|width||Sets the width of the embedded component in the page|
