Ah, but speex.org should lead by example.  Instead of posting wav files, why
not post the actual speex files as well?  Then make it plaingly obvious for
people to download the plugins with links to the page you just posted.

On windows, illi's excellent Ogg DirectShow filter will do
(http://www.illiminable.com/ogg/). On MacOS X, I think there's a QT
component that will do the trick, but I'm not sure where to get it. On
Linux, gstreamer, xine and other frameworks will handle Speex fine. On
Symbian mobile phone, you might have to use the command-line speexdec,
though ;-)
