Streaming Audio and Web Hosting
Streaming audio allows your visitors to hear your MP3 file while they are downloading it, as opposed to hearing it only after they download it. Here are examples to clarify this concept.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Streamtest.m3u (37 Bytes) - Streaming Audio
Since the web host provider of Viloria.com allows audio streaming, you'll hear the sound file while it is being downloaded. Not all web hosting packages allow this, so you'll have to ask before you sign up for web hosting if you plan to serve MP3 files from your site.
One thing weird I've noticed though with M3U files, if I try to play it a second time, I just get a "Connection Lost" error message. With MP3 direct links, however, I can hit that play button over and over again.
If you're serving short MP3 files (i.e., < 2mins), it might be better to just use direct links to the MP3 file. Assume 1MB of data per minute of recording, so for long recordings use the M3U file. Or better yet, provide both links so that your visitors can choose which they prefer.
In the interest of accessibility, choose web hosting packages that allow you to stream audio. You'll never know when you might decide to use audio on your web site.
