Can anyone tell me why the following html code doesn't work:

<audio autoplay>
  <source src="file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.

I must say, it does work in Microsoft Edge, but in no other browser, including Firefox. And how could I make it work? I want the audio file to start playing when the page is opened, in the background, no controls, no loops...

Thanks in advance for any help.

You can check the Web Console for media related messages.

Firefox can block autoplay by default, you can check the Autoplay setting for the current tab in "Tools -> Page Info -> Permissions".
