For images:

Not aware that there is a standard for audio.

It strikes me that (if done properly) this could be a real opportunity to get
some gee-whiz publicity for OSM. At present the project is hugely exciting for
us and for those in the wider world who "get" open data, but fairly abstruse
for Joe Public.

Having live data feeds which dynamically update the site, on the other 
hand, is
_obviously_ cool. I'm thinking of something like Mikel's excellent
http://brainoff.com/osm/change/, but updated every couple of seconds, so you
could actually see people driving around. (Privacy discussion that way ------>
