[App_rpt-users] Streaming questions

Thanks Jim. I did a little reading and the output of Asterisk at least to the log files is GSM 6.1. I think sox can handle a conversion to WAV (to accomodate the non-UNIX clients out there...)
Another thought out be to open the /acid_archive/<node>/ log files and stream those. They are realtime afterall. Perhaps a 'tee' command could be used somewhere.
I'll post back when I get further.

I understand. Some people just don't like a "metallic sound". I'm not sure what other options
are readily available. Certainly if you want more of a "dubstep" sound, perhaps you should
pipe the stream through something like "zcat". That would certainly make it more "dubstep"-like. :-)

Seriously, I don't think any of those streaming server things will accept anything other then mp3 (or ogg)
Believe me, it was *not* done by any of my choice (being that mp3 is certainly *not* my favorite
codec for ANYTHING!).

I would like to just publish the basic URL and port (http://localhost:8000). We used to do this with a Windows Media Server before consolidating on one Linux server.
