    Does Flash support compressed audio types other than mp3?

      Hi,

       

      I would like to add a very small and simple Flash audio player to my website.  I have found lots of Flash MP3 players, but I can't seem to find players that will work with other types of audio files, such as aac/m4a/mp4.

       

      I had previously been using Windows Media Server to stream WMA files on my site, but this only works for Windows users, and I need streaming to work for Mac users as well.  So I think Flash is the way to go, but I cannot use mp3's because of licensing concerns.

       

      I've been looking and looking for a flash player that supports other audio types, but can't find one.  Does anyone have any ideas?

       

      Is it true that flash has a native class for mp3, but doesn't have built-in support for others?

       

      Thanks,

      Blue
