KISS AUDIO



A variety of formats are used to present multimedia on the KISSFAQ. We try and use what is best for a variety of platforms though you should keep in mind that it is sometimes easier to simply download something that you want to see/hear and play it from your machine (usually right-clicking on a hyper-link will give you a menu which will list the option "save target as" or something similar. Mac users are on their own!).

Due to bandwidth and copyright issues, only samples of the material can be heard here.
