Hello everyone,

My company is involved with wedding and special event videos, and we are working on a song list of recommended songs for our website. We would like to include some way for visitors to our site to listen to short samples of songs that we recommend. We know that we can't post samples on our site, and we're fine with linking to samples that are on a legitimate website.

We've looked at the song samples on both Amazon and BN.com as possibilities. But the samples on both sites are either provided in Windows Media Player or Real formats. The Amazon site even says that their samples won't work in Safari, which is unbelievable to us--Safari has been around for years!

We want to make this feature easy for our customers, not a hassle, and being a Mac-based studio, we want Mac users to be able to listen to the samples we link to. So here is the question: Is there a music vendor out there that provides song samples from CDs that work more universally? Maybe one whose samples are Flash-based?

Thanks! (And if this question is in the wrong forum, please feel free to move it...but we figured all the audio experts would be here. :)
