if you want, you can email it to me, my email address is in my profile, and I can take a look at it and maybe convert it into something else as I have many audio/video editing apps.
or if you try chris's idea, I'd suggest changing the extension to an audio one, not a pdf or the like, maybe a .mp3 or .mov or.aac or something similar.

ok, thats good. its easy on mac, if you have stuffit deluxe, use drop segment, if you don't,
there are 3rd party apps that will do it.

no, thats why its deluxe, it has a lot more features than the regular stuffit expander, which is free and comes with os x.
