html file plays mp3 file OFF-LINE but not ON-LINE

Explorer | Level 3

I have an html file that contains an html5 audio player. The mp3 file that is embedded into my html5 audio player is also in my dropbox account--- so they are both off line and on-line. This html file will play my mp3 file WHEN I'm playing my Dropbox html file OFF-LINE. But when I go to my same Dropbox account ON-LINE--- this same Dropbox html file will not play this mp3 file. SILENCE pervades!

The html file in question is inside a Dropbox file folder called HTML whereas the mp3 file is in a Dropbox file folder called MUSIC. Both file folders are in my dropbox account that can be accessed both on and off line with the flip of a switch, just as you designed it. Any answers why it plays in one circumstance but not the other?

This is absolutely critical to me, for I must get this mp3 music playing while it is on-line in a "shared" environment for anyone who has my link. I think you understand what I'm talking about here. If its beyond your comprehension, please kick my problem 'upstairs' to someone who appreciates what my problem is. If need be, I can give you my file names and you can try doing what I've been trying to do unsuccessfully. ...Bruce*********

There doesn't seem to be any Dropbox functionality in your code, so I'm afraid I can't offer any help. This may be better suited on a general web development forum or StackOverflow.
