[Speex-dev] How to get podcasters to adopt Speex?

Ok, I made my own sample HTML page and it worked on a vorbis OGG file that I
embedded.  No need to download a player (other than the directshow filter if
it isn't already installed) and no need to download sample.  It just played
within the browser.  I should probably try to release a podcast like this at
16 kbps and see how well it's received.

I post wav files for the same reason people have screenshots. Sure, I could
download OpenOffice and try it, but it's nice to be able to click and see a
screenshot before downloading anything. Plus if people are going to download
Speex anyway, they don't need my samples because they can make their own.
