I have a website where users record sound and save sounds for later playback.  Using "ogg compression", most sounds are no larger than 20K.  The website is published with Director 11's Shockwave.   I would like to upload, store, and retrieve sounds with a mySQL database identified by each users ID number.  Currently, my users have a folder on my server and the sounds are uploaded to this folder.  When the recorded sound for the user is needed for playback at a later time, the sound is downloaded to the user's machine and then the sound is played.  I need a quicker, more efficient model.  Can mySQL and php solve this problem?  Thanks for your help!
