It looks like it would be useful, but it does not solve my immediate problem.
I've got the file, but I cannot play it locally.

I've tried pointing firefox at it,
but firefox tells my that it is a bin file
and asks me whether I want to save it.

It seems to me that if firefox could play it from far away,
firefox should be able to play it on my computer.
So far, that seems not to be the case.

Do I need to point at the file through some HTML?
