I have some sound samples on my site in .wav format. I notice that since I installed Quicktime Player on my computer, when I click on a link to a .wav file in Firefox it opens Quicktime in a new browser window and streaming the audio. This is very convenient as the files are more than 50Mb. However in IE I get a download window as before, and I have to download the whole file before playing. How could I get streaming to work in IE?
(P.S. Why have I.E. at all when we have Firefox?)

Thanks Justpassingby
However I can't ask my site visitors to do that. What you're saying is that its not possible on the client side. Is there some programing trick I can use on the server?
Otherwise I will have to advise my visitors to use Firefox/Quicktime if they want streaming.

I have another computer. It opens Windows Media Player as you say, but then a pop-up message appears telling me it cannot play the track for some mysterious reason. However I take your word for it that the default behaviour would be to play the audio streaming. Thats good news,
