Not If It's Streaming..

...and not if they're standard full size music files.. (A few sites offer smaller files such a midi tunes but they aren't really full CD quality songs.) Sometimes, if you can download the actual music file to your desktop, then once it's there, you should be able to have a decent music playback. Not all sites offer than though. Unfortunately, streaming audio and video will only playback as quickly as the data can be downloaded to the computer.. Slow download, choppy playback. Fast download, better playback..

If you really like listening to music on the web, you'll need a broadband connection.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for taking the time to post that information for me Grif. Now I have an idea what to start with.
