does anyone know how to stream audio from linux to a web page? so far i have been able to pipe arecord to a tcp port on a nodejs server, but have trouble getting it to play in the client. any method is welcome, doesnt have to be nodejs

@johanv Either have JavaScript on the client (bad plan; the WebAudio API is horrible) or use something supported by the <audio> tag.

@wizzwizz4 thanks for pointing me in the right direction! i was able to get a wav file to stream thru tcp to the server and then to a normal audio tag. i should be able to get the mic to pipe in, and then experiment with ogg for compression.
