We are looking at a project which involves being able to play excerpts 
from large MP3 files. Each file contains a radio programme of up to 60 
minutes in length and we'd like to be able to 'jump in' at, say, 24 
minutes from the start and play a 4 minute extract. Does anyone know of a 
source package that will do this (we are using icecast2 as the streaming 

The files are MP3 but we're open to using other file formats if they 
are more suitable for this kind of work.
