Have you ever visited the website of an independent musician? Often you will find that they are kind enough to let you download some of their tracks in mp3 format. But then you have to download the mp3 somewhere on your computer, wait for the transfer to complete and (if you still remember where you actually saved it!) open the mp3 file with your audio player of choice. Isn’t there a quicker way to listen to a song or a podcast? Sure there is!
Gljakal’s MP3Streamer does just that, in the simplest way possible: just copy the address of the song you want to listen in the “mp3 file address” field and hit “Stream” to start listening: no downloads, no waiting, it’s all set!
If you are a musician or a podcaster, you can also use the HTML code provided to embed the mp3 player directly into your site!
Also, if you are really really lazy like me, you can get a bookmarklet that will convert all the links to mp3 files in the page you are currently visiting in mp3 players :).
