Re: Some ideas needed



zip sounds too complicated and too much work for folks.   How about just 
making a streaming m3u (file that streams individual tagged MP3 files or 
samples), and then just providing a link to the m3u file contents so that 
folks can download the MP3s they want.

For example, create a file in notepad called "my_sample_mp3s.m3u" and 
populate it like this:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,Artist Name - Song Title - CD
http://yourmp3filename.mp3
#EXTINF:-1,Artist Name - Song Title - CD
http://yourmp3filename.mp3
#EXTINF:-1,Artist Name - Song Title - CD
http://yourmp3filename.mp3
...and so on

When folks go to the m3u file, they can listen to all the clips and even 
skip through them. Then if they want to download one, they just look at 
the 
contents of the m3u file, which you can publish in text format on your 
site.

Subject: Some ideas needed


Hi everybody,

I know its a bit off topic, but maybe some people on this list do have 
some 
advice (I tried some typically mp3 groups and this was no serious help at 
all).
I need some help or recommendations on the following subject:

I want to offer mp3 files of my work on my own homepage (which Im working 
on at the moment).
I do work with loops and sometimes they are only tiny pieces of music for 
e.g. audio books, and so I have for example 50 individual mp3 tracks from 
30 
sec to a few minutes in one album.
This would be a lot of individual downloading for the people.

So I would like to have one file containing all little mp3 files with tags 
etc. .
What do you recommend to do for offering such downloadable file in which 
all 
the individual files stay as they are?
Just a simple Winzip or Winrar compression? Any experiences with the 
quality 
of such?
Or maybe BitTorrent? Or sth.else?

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you very much and I wish everybody 
on 
this list a happy new year!

Regards and greetings from Spain
Ingo
