Though it's not visible in the user interface, pretty much the whole

downloads use Flash.

Personally, I don't have a major problem with that :) I have my own
Bandcamp site too -- http://pneuman.bandcamp.com/ -- and I see the Flash
bits as a bit of a necessary evil. I've done some work with HTML5 audio
streaming, and while it does work, different browsers require different
formats, and you still need a Flash fallback for IE. It's also quite
hard to get all of the stats that Bandcamp gives you about how _much_ of
a file people have listened to.

Like you though, Atte, I also throw my songs on my own site and have
direct URLs that people can use to download them, so that even those
without Flash can still get them.

Thanks
