Cannot play mp3 files via webdirect

I've setup container fields in which I'm storing MP3 files.

 

When I open the layoug showing these container fields in FileMaker, I get a media player that allows the user to play the mp3 file and listen to it:

However, when I open the same layout in FM WebDirect, I get the following

And the user can't play the MP3 files from the web browser.

 

Is there a solution to this (some setting I'm missing int he container field)? Is the only solution to make buttons for each container field with scripts to export the MP3 files when the user is using a web browser?

 

Is there a way to play an mp3 file directly within the web browser using WebDirect?
