In this topic, we described about the <bgsound> tag along with detailed example.
Deprecated in HTML5. The <bgsound> element was used to insert a background audio track in an HTML Page. The <bgsound> element was introduced by Microsoft into the Internet Explorer browser.
So no other browsers are supports the <bgsound> tag. It allowed web designers to add a background audio loop to a website in internet explorer. It is no longer supported.
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. The <audio> element can be used to add background sounds instead of <bgsound> tag. But it has autoplay attribute and can’t be disabled.
Below are the attributes of bgsound.
|Balance||Defines the volume divided between the speakers.The values in between -10000 to +10000|
|Loop||The attribute indicates the number of times a sound is to be playedThe values are numbers or “infinite”|
|Src||Specifies the URL of the sound file|
|Volume||Specifies the loudnessThe value is between -10000 and 0|
