Hi all

I have a load of sound files on my site, that I want visitors to play without a) leaving my site and b) being able to download them

Currently I have a little flash audio player that does this perfectly.

But recently i'm finding more and more people are not being able to access these flash files. Is there a better way to achieve the same results?

Is there anything that will do what I want that is more widely useable?
