I'm not sure which list, so I'll post it to both.
I was thinking about this streaming thing again (thankfully, not about the
info stream, but the audio stream. 8-) ), and I was wondering if it would
be streamable like MP3, or more like Real Audio. MP3 players, like WinAMP,
can stream without a special server. This may not be as reliable,
streaming over HTTP, but it is quite handy. Will this be possible with
Vorbis (dependent on the plug-ins)? And, if it IS possible, it should also
pre-buffer the next coming song, if possible, so that the audio stream
pauses as little as possible between songs, similar to how WinAMP does it.
Thanks for any info!
