Ok, got a question here. If I am using DOM to upload MP3's to the Amazon S3 servers, is there a way I can classify in my code what type of file was uploaded so I can use the MP3 functionality?

Nope. Can't have the best of both worlds. Not until PHP supports multiple inheritance. Although, you could probably subclass the S3File class and copy over the Player() function from MP3. Not sure what else you'd need. I think it's pretty straightforward.

Ideally, of course, you don't have to duplicate any code. Multiple inheritance would allow classes to inherit from multiple parents, meaning your S3MP3 class could inherit from both S3File and MP3.
