Greetings All

I need to post recordings (with transcripts) of a couple of radio 
interviews to a Web site.  What format should I use?

Having looked at acbradio.org and have found their advice to be very 
Windows-centric without mentioning the format in which the information 
is posted.  I haven't actually tried accessing any content here because 
I am going mad with all the differing MIME types for the same content 
which are causing Mozilla to tell me that I don't have the appropriate 
plugin.

MP3 is the route I would tend to go down.  I've never played around with 
streaming content, but it doesn't look to hard.  The option could be 
given to stream the sound or to download as a file to be played on a 
"Walkman" type device at the listener's leisure.

Cheers

M
