Embedding a song in aeria profile?

So how do i go about doing this, Have tried so many embed codes and different audio files that now i am starting to get a headache. Basically I want to embed a single song to auto play as soon as someone reaches my profile, preferably in a small media player that they can turn off if they want to.

I used: http://www.sheepproductions.com/billy

You can also use YouTube, but most of their videos have blocks so they can't play on other websites x.x
For YouTube videos: use old embed coding, at the end of the video URLs type: &autoplay=1;

lol here is a better explanation for YouTube video embedding:
http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1181821

But it works poorly because YouTube blocks some/most songs on Aeria's websites.

The autoplayer I linked you to is more recommended. I thought it was self explanatory, but I guess I'll give you step-by-step instructions.
1. Go to Drop Box (https://www.dropbox.com/)
2. Save your MP3 file to your Drop Box
3. Take the direct MP3 URL, and place it in the URL area on http://www.sheepproductions.com/billy/
4. On the box next to it, type the title
5. Hit generate code
6. Copy and paste the code to your profile

Edit: the buffer time shouldn't be long (5 seconds max) It is probably because you didn't use the direct .mp3 url
So make sure the URL you put into the box ends in .mp3

Same issue, takes forever to buffer. It takes me forever to buffer yours also.

I use Chrome and I went through the same problem of song after song not working. Just use *shudders*...Internet Explored to add it to your profile.

Edit: Don't forget the <embed></embed> and &autoplay=1 (after the link)
