Clunky, noisey playback of MP3 files online

I am having a relatively new problem with MP3 files I've created via mac - both from Logic Pro 5 and from Peak Pro 5. 80% of the time I'm getting pops and murky sound from the files when playing them via the web. When I play the same files locally, even through a web browser, they sound great. Upload them and play them back online, they blow.

Any ideas?

internet adds more compression to an already compressed file. Some websites will cut the quality to 64kbps (some even lower!) to save space on their server. this is probably the issue.
