Audio Playlist Question: 1 MP3 with many songs

I have a single concert MP3. I'd like to break up this MP3 so that folks can click on a link and go to a particular song.

I've used programs like Sublr (for Mac) to break up MP4 files, but how the heck do I do it in HTML using just the native Audio in HTML5?

Thanks!

You don't.  There is no editing in HTML Audio.

If this mp3 file has regions you do this in any professional audio editor and export regions to file.
If not you need to open mp3 in audio editor, select song (you need to do it manually or visually) and export to mp3 file any selection.
I'm using SoundForge from SONY to edit audio tracks but you can use any free audio editor, select part of file and export it / save as to mp3 file

Windows
Audacity

Oceanaudio

or any free audio editor for Mac

Tom's suggestion of Audacity is good.

Audacity is very memory efficient + fast to slice + export parts of an mp3 as other mp3s.

Thanks to everyone who replied. I always appreciate smart people that have done something correctly before I take it on. :-)

While it was a little time-consuming, I believe that this is going to do the trick:

I stuck with Audacity (mostly because I had it downloaded already and the libraries installed that I wanted). It was easier than doing it in ProTools and once the entire concert is broken up, I just use the standard HTML audio tags to set it up.

Thanks again.
