    I'm currently working on a website for a local radio program...odds are this person will want downloadable clips available on the site, as well as streaming audio for those with broadband connections...

    Obviously I know enough to realize that simply uploading the sound file and linking to it will allow users to download it; but how do I go about embedding the file on a page so as to produce a streaming file? If I recall correctly it's simply a few lines of code, but I can't be sure.

    Thanks!

    I will just use this thread for my question since it's quite relevant to the topic.

    How would I embedd mpeg file on the page that's compatible to common browsers assuming they have mplayer installed on user's PC?

    For Real Audio Files here is how it works.

    Upload your RA file, example: yourclip.ra

    Create a file called yourclip.ram which has only the following: http://www.yoursite.com/yourclip.ra


    When you want to link to the streaming file, you link to http://www.yoursite.com/yourclip.ram and then it will start the streaming.

    Make Sense?


    (By the time I finally posted this, it no longer seems relevant )

    I mean mpeg movie. I do not want just a link to watch the movie. What I want is they click on a link to html file and the mpeg movie file is embbeded there that automatically buffer or play. I just hope it should work on both IE and Netscape.


    Hope you can help me guys and gals. Thanks in advance for your replies!

    I have seen these mpeg movie files on MUSIC sites. You can watch the whole video of Britney Spears embed in html page but do not know how they'd done it!
