Playing MP3 audio in app background

Hello all. Love the Buzztouch Platform (on my 6th app) but cannot seem to get audio to play within a given screen (Home screen menu simple.) I am using BT 3.0 core (Android)and have uploaded it to the assets BT Audio folder as dee.mp3 , validate/cleaned etc. It also does not play via the audio file url option.
(https://www.dropbox.com/s/rgp3l674c2v3rgg/dee.mp3)link requires that it be clicked to play-not automatic.
I also have the interactive quiz installed on another app and confirmed placement of those audio files/names (this app works) to make sure that I did not miss anything.
Is there a audio player plugin that is needed? I dont want to stream the file, just allow it to play natively.
Suggestions?

Thanks!!

For some reason, the audio code in Android isn't 'connected' yet. It's there, but commented out a bit.

I ended up stealing some code from the 'quiz' plugin to see how to do it in my regular pages.

I haven't done anything intensive with it; I only needed audio to play on one HTML page, but I documented what I did here:

If you have an issue, yell on the forums. Either I or someone can get back to you as fast as convenient.

Cheers!

Thanks Smug! (love your member name.) I will attempt to look through to see how to make these changes.
