I want to play a midi or mp3 sound as background music in a widget.
I tried to use <object> to embed the music. In the simulator I get a java null pointer exception
but then it is playing the sound. On the device it is not playing any sound at all.
Any ideas ?

There really isn't a good way to do this in either the BlackBerry Browser or in a BlackBerry Widget. We are working on an Audio API that will allow you to do exactly what you are asking for, but it has not yet been released.

Tim, can you provide more information about the Audio api since OS 6 is now announced? Were you referring to HTML 5 audio or is there more functionality that RIM will be offering?

These should be released somewhere near the DevCon timeframe.
