Need Streaming Audio Player (small height 45px) As website widget (NO FLASH)

I've fiddled with three different HTML5 <audio> tags on my webpage design and can't get any of the code to display a player and if it does, the play button doesn't work.  I need an iPhone / Safari friendly method for playing streaming music files from my website and have yet to find a solution that is not flash based.

The MP3 player from Reverbnation is too tall and doesn't load on a mobile browser even though it is HTML5 and not flash.

I need some proven solutions that meet my needs (45px height max) and able to play .mp3 and .ogg files.
Who is Participating?
It took me less than a minute to customize it and give it 32px height size...
hope you will find something which fully answering your needs...
merry christmas
He said NO FLASH!! lol
I can't prove these but hopefully meets some of your questions.
 If not wait till Monday.

A Simple Way To Play MP3 Audio Files
The iPhone media player is very easy to use, but it only works in landscape mode and it seems designed more for video than audio.  
If you wish to play an onboard MP3 or an MP3 file as it’s downloading (not really streaming, but progressive download) you have another option!  
Use the audio player embedded with Safari running in a UIWebView.
Here’s how to do it without having to create a special window for it.  Instantiate an UIWebView object using a 1×1 pixel sized frame (here self.playerView is an instance variable on my controller and is NOT added as a subview)

the jw player seems to be video focused, and that's not my goal. also, the HTML5 player code posted by MCNUTE is the same code I've used and it doesn't work on mobile browsers.

@leakim971 The Jplayer did NOT provide the ability I requested. It is offered in HTML5 but not scalable to the size I requested and does not play on iPhone platform.  I would NOT have said NO SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS work if I didn't mean it.

I can READ what they wrote too. Don't you think I took the time to check it out FIRST before ruling out them as an option. Totally customizable does NOT include the size I requested.  Give it up dude. That was the first option I went to before even posting this thread, so unless you can show me a deployed and operating version of what I need, give up on pushing a solution that WILL NOT MEET MY NEED. Sheesh!
