- First I had eSnips. Some guys had problems with it.
- Then I had BoxNet, the free area, where I only could put file into smaller than 10 Mb.
- Now I have BoxNet paid for files larger than 10 mb.
- Some have their own website. Some have Windows.
- Easy for me are the websites of e.g. Larry Alexander. After clicking the system waits for the file to play with Windows Media Player and since I have Quicktime is now plays through this program.
- Others use BoxNet also.
- Some like KEPeace have a clear "own player" in their website.
Some have such obscure hosting sites and needs all sorts of plugins, players (Shockwave), and other stuff normally blocked by my firewall and IE, the music can't be played at all. Some have websites so slooooooooowwwww that it takes ages to get the file playing. Flash-stuff, circular re-directing links to itself, strange ActiveX stuff, it is all there, Java scripts, and the rest..... name it (MAc users have different systems).
Sometimes files named as MP3 in the text isn't MP3 at all. Maybe WMA, MP2, Ogg, Ram or whatever is on the market.
Can't we introduce some standard please? Now I have to skip a lot of your great compositions because I can't get them and though I installed a lot of the plugins, - to play the music - , I further refuse to install anything when my system asks for it.
Any solutions, ideas? Please.
