I always export it to flash and enjoy the process of adding sound. Recently I tried HTML5 with the same setting as Flash. I wonder why does the sound doesnt work even under the media section I added a mp3 file. Please help. Is there another way to do it in html 5?

When using the media editor you will see you can add an alternative file.
This is because you are now relying on the web browser and its native sound support for the HTML5 output.

Firefox can play .ogg
Safari can play .mp3

So if you have the above in the media editor the Flash output will use the .mp3 and the HTML5 output will serve up either the .ogg or .mp3 depending on browser.

The same is also true of video.
