I have a server with about 20 different sound capable applications. Lets say each application gets a ID between 10 and 30.

I could then do it by launching each application by padsp -s[ID] [application] [arguments]

Now I would want some possibility to stream this via a apache server to the public. I need to have 30 pulseaudio servers alive which can stream audio to a client which connected to my HTTP server. Lets say a user points their streaming client to mms://

Now that streaming server should take the sound from the pulseaudio server listening on port 9925 and stream that sound via mms/http to that client.

How can this be accomplished?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

This question seems more broadcast and compression specific than AV Production! Inviting experts to a new site proposal Broadcast and Media Technologies which aims to capture more architectural and theoretical views around subjects like this.
