This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: I would like to see new media players with more options.

I downloaded my MP3 player file but it automatically starts when the page opens and does not give me the option to let the viewer click on the arrow to start the MP3 player sound.

There is a known issue where the Chrome web browser ignores the player controls and just plays the media files immediately when the page loads. Our developers are aware of this but currently the only work-around I have is to just create standard hyperlink to the media file from a button or text and then it will launch the media file using the media player plugin installed in the web browser.
