    Streaming AIFFs/WAVs

    If I understand the online docs correctly, the most recent version of
    the sever will serve AIFF and WAV files in native format without
    transcoding to MP3.

    The problem is, when I try to play the stream (e.g.,
    http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3) in iTunes (for the Mac), it's unable
    to open receive anything. I think this is because the file extension
    for the stream URL is .mp3, so it tries to read the stream as an MP3
    instead of the stream's actual format (AIFF or WAV) and thus fails.
    When I change the stream URL in iTunes to stream.aiff or stream.wav,
    the stream info window in iTunes indicates a AIFF/WAV Stream, so
    presumably the player is capable of playing such a stream. But no
    stream is available at that URL--the server only serves the stream at
    stream.mp3.

    Any suggestions on how to make this work? Do I need to hack the server
    perl?

    Thanks!

    Streaming AIFFs/WAVs

    Do you know if iTunes can actually receive AIFF or WAV streams?
