Hmmmmmmmmmm im looking around and thinking to myself, why mp3?

why not be able to stream other formats, such as real audio? and windows media audio

They have higher quality at lower bitrates, so why waste bandwidth?

also what is vorbis? is it higher quality at lower bit rates? or is it pratically the same as mp3

www.real.com
www.windowsmedia.com
www.icecast.org

realMedia and WindowsMedia are copyrighted formats are are not free to use. And suck anyways. There is no way in hell Microsoft or Real networks would allow it anyways.

For Ogg Vorbis streaming use IceCast.
