I have several audio files that I feature on this site... http://www.strangeratthedoor.com/radio_show_guests.htm ...

The page takes forever to load as I believe the rather sizeable audio files are preloading. Just how do I stop this from happening.

Here's a sample of the EMBED code I am using. Would appreciate the help.

<OBJECT id='mediaPlayer' width="408" height="45" classid='CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95' codebase='http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701' standby='Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components...' type='application/x-oleobject'>
<param name='fileName' value="091708.mp3">
<param name='animationatStart' value='false'>
<param name='transparentatStart' value='false'>
<param name='autoStart' value="false">
<param name='showControls' value="true">
<param name='loop' value="false">
<EMBED type='application/x-mplayer2' pluginspage='http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/' id='mediaPlayer' name='mediaPlayer' displaysize='4' autosize='-1' bgcolor='darkblue' showcontrols="true" showtracker='-1' showdisplay='0' showstatusbar='-1' videoborder3d='-1' width="408" height="45" src="091708.mp3" autostart="false" designtimesp='5311' loop="false">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>
