If you don't mind using Realaudio format, you can stream it from any HTTP
web server.

To do this, create your RM file - you can do this using the free
"Realproducer" from real.com.

Then create a plain text file with a RAM extension, and inside that file put
just one line; the URL to your RM file.

e.g., if I have a piece called "music.rm", then the first and only line of
"music.ram" would read
http://www.mywebsite.com/music.rm (assuming it's in the root, of course)

Upload both the RM and RAM files to your website.  For your "preview" link,
point to the RAM file, not the RM file.

What happens is that when Realplayer is asked to open an RAM file, it reads
the RAM file and starts downloading the RM file listed inside, but instead
of downloading it all first, it plays as it downloads - ie, it streams it!
