HTML & CSS Audio MP3


New Coder
<audio controls>
   <source src="audio.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">

I am new with HTML & CSS. I have an IT software programming background, however, I cannot figure out why this code is not playing the .mp3 file within the same folder as the .html.
MP3 file: double click - .mp3 Plays successfully
HTML file: double click - the Control button appears in gray tone yet not accessible to Play .mp3
HTML=289 bytes
I was successful replacing the Audio code to display a photo.

Hello there!

Welcome to Code Forum!

Haven't dealt with this before, but can you try editing the type to type="audio/mp3"

<audio controls>
   <source src="audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3">
Hello, @TreasureHunt!

Did @edenwax provide you with a solution? If so, please mark the particular post as the solution. However, if you found the answer elsewhere can you please post it for others that may come across your issue as well.
Sorry, it took going to a class at my local Library.
SOLUTION: I used NAXA NPB-300 Cassette to MP3 Converter to create my original MP3 file.
I had to download Audacity (free app) to my laptop. Using Audacity, File, Open, with my original MP3 file as input, then File, Export, to MP3, I created a new output file name. The resulting file is smaller, but that in/out process allows the MP3 to be heard using my HTML audio code. YAY!
