    you can record audio and upload it to youtube, vimeo, etc and then embed/link that from a blog post

    In almost all cases, this audio is hosted on the server. It is actually pretty poor form to stream audio from a site without permission of that site's owner as streaming audio and video can be a real drain on bandwidth.

    box.net is pretty cool for this kind of stuff, but I don't think it does autoplay.
