[asterisk-users] Playback/background audio from MySQL BLOB

For some applications, storing recorded audio (prompts and caller 
recordings) as a BLOB in MySQL has advantages.

So, once I have the audio in the database, how can I play it?

Creating temporary files seems so tacky.

Is there another way to playback or background audio either by specifying 
a URL or from a memory buffer (either C or PHP)?

Thanks in advance,
