Playing embedded sounds does only work with Win- and Mac-Versions of
Acrobat Reader. Try movie15-Package:


You will need pdf(la)tex, version >=1.20 for real embedding (no externally linked sound files) and Adobe Reader >=6.0 for viewing the PDF.

1.) \includemovie[text=click here!]{}{}{sound.mp3}

2.) Start playing when the page containg the command is opend:

3.) like 2.) but don't stop sound on transition to next page	
    \includemovie[autoplay, continue]{0pt}{0pt}{sound.mp3}
