How to STREAM .wav files (G 711 telephony codec)?

We are looking for a way to stream .wav (G.711 telephony) files to a web browser.

Anyone knows of a solution that can do that, outside of building an own player and streaming solution. Or has anyone built a .wav file streaming solution / player that can do it.

Ideally it would support playback mid-file without having to download the entire file (off set).

Find a solution that works and we'll send you a cash bonus on top of whatever maximum points we can give you.

EE members are Not allowed to offer or accept monetary gain / payment using this forum. Naughty you.
Wav are notoriously big so not supported much.
So I cant really give you a straight answers but if you'd like take at look at my ideas.
If you want to stream media (as opposed to having them download it) you'll need to install Windows Media Services. Windows Media Player can easily be embedded into web pages
Silverlight idea

hmmm interesting..  some good links that we have not found yet.
Silverlight is out.. this is for a quite a high volume use case (telephony)..
G.711 is a bit compressed not much though.. there are various practical reasons we need this in wav.. despite the size of that..

We'll research the results you provided further. If we can make any of the suggested solutions work we'll figure out the naughty things then.. there's a lot attached to this if we can make this work..
