I wasn't sure where to put this, Daniel, and it's not relevant to dub in particualar so feel free to delete it, but I'd appreciate an answer of some kind.

I'm wondering how I could set up audio to be listened to in real time (I believe it is called streaming, but I mean when you don't actually have to download the sound to hear it, it will just play from the website).

Perhaps this is only available from certain sites, and perhaps you need certain software to set it up, but I don't know.

If it is available only on certain sites, I have a site on Angelfire, and if it isn't available there would someone point me in the direction of a free host site where it is available.

That's a bit all over the place, but any help would be much appreciated.

- cheers.

streaming real audio:
http://www.lysator.liu.se/~zap/tutorial/ra.html

For mp3 streaming, here's what i found through a google newsgroup search:

"Mp3s "stream" naturally when folks open them up with Internet Explorer
(or even AOL's home-brewed browser)--that is, they buffer up and play
like streaming Real Audio (ram files) or even Windows Media
(asxfiles). With Netscape, though, Mp3s don't buffer up and "stream."
They just sit there until the entire file is downloaded into cache and
then they decide to play. So, the upshot here is that one needs to
stream Mp3s only as a courtesy to those folks who use Netscape. And
here's how to do it.

You need to create a redirect metafile called an m3u. First off,
upload your mp3, then open up Notepad and type a single line
containing the complete URL of that mp3. For example, I have a
streaming mp3 version of my acoustic 6-string guitar interpretation of
that classic instrumental, Apache, housed with Netscape, and so in
Notepad I typed this URL as a single
line:http://mywebpage.netscape.com/Waucoba/apache5rs.mp3 . Once you've
done that, name the file with the extension m3u. In the given example,
I named my m3u file apache5rs.m3u. When you link to your mp3, use the
m3u link, not the mp3. The link to the streaming Apache mp3--housed
with AOL, by the way (the beauty of redirect files such as m3u is that
they don't even need to be housed in the same web space as the mp3),
is http://members.aol.com/geowrs/apache5rs.m3u . That way, Netscape
browsers will be able to stream your mp3s, imitating Internet
Explorer's capabilities.

The link to my Apache interpretation, along with another version of
the same song, can also be found
athttp://mywebpage.netscape.com/Waucoba/apache1.html , by the way."
----end quote

Whether a file will stream or download also depends on settings in the listener's audio player (at least in RealOnePlayer).

Also note that some "free" webspace providers/mp3 hosting sites don't allow deep linking, i.e you can't link to a file on an Angelfire or mp3.com page from another site, i guess they want people to click on their fucking pop-ups and banners...like anyone ever does that anyway.

Hope this helps, there are probably easier ways/software to do it, but this is how i've done it.

Thanks a lot, Mitch. I appreciate it. Hopefully I'll be able to work it out.
