Thx Dave

It just seems inefficient downloading the data to the browser, then posting
the data back to the web server, and potentially again to another server.
Media files are often large and web servers can be remote to the browser.
The web server may not even want the data.

In my application (biometric speaker verification), the web server will need
to pass the data on to yet another server - ie three transmissions through 3
servers and there is a genuine time imperative.

The URI could be transmitted just as easily and much more efficiently and
the destination server could download the waveform once. Perhaps it would be
possible to support both methods concurrently without compromising the
integrity of the langauge. ie make the URI available as a shadow variable in
addition to the waveform and leave it to the application to decide which
method to use.


Regards
James
