"We deliver an ultra-small java applet so Clipstream audio messages can be heard by the greatest majority of web viewers, in the shortest amount of time by avoiding bulky downloads and excessive buffering time."

No programming knowledge is necessary to use Clipstream. The user simply chooses the desired audio clip, drags and drops it through the Clipstream compressor, and cuts and pastes the auto-generated code into the Web page.

Clipstream is PC and Mac OS compatible. The Clipstream compressor compresses CD audio, wav files, or Mp3 formats. Clipstream compresses and delivers streaming audio at two different bit rates: 22kb or 44kb per second depending on the users Internet connection speed.
