Most RealServers should let you stream MP3s. But if you don't have a 
RealServer all you need is an RM file to point to the MP3 file 
appropriately. We create RM files for each MP3 we host for our client's 
Board & Committee Meetings. You could easily create the RM file on the fly 
when the file is successfully uploaded, they are only text files.

e.g. Meeting.rm


Then use the RM file in the link on the page, let the RealAudio Client do 
the rest.
