    Can MACS stream web audio?
    I have been approached by a client who wants links on their webpage so that when clicked they play a small audio clip.

    The audio would be mp3. Many of the people who will be accessing their site will be using macs. Is there a way that mac users can play web-based audio clips without first having to download the audio clip?

    Looking for a method that enables both windows and mac based users to access the audio files so that it opens a small player and streams the audio. Is there a method?

    Any help much appreciated

    Cheers

    Well if it's a regular mp3 file embeded in a page, safari will just play it in the browser using quicktime...

    No need to download it.

    Alternatively look into a flash based solution.

    Many thanks for your answer...I'm not familiar with accessing the web via Macs myself - so wasn't sure how it worked. So is it that you don't have to download an audio clip to play it - that it will play as streaming audio using Safari browser with Quicktime? Just wanna make sure I've understood before i get back to the client.

    Thanks again :yinyang:

    They're not as primitive as you think!

    They'll play pretty much anything you throw at them.
