Stream user's computer output to server?

Hey,

it might be a bit off topic but I hope I'm still allowed to post this.
I'm currently looking for something (whatever language, script, ...)
that allows users to click a button and stream the audio output of their
computer to the server. Does anyone know anything that does this?

Thanks

Google "scripts for file upload" to get the user's information on your server. Streaming depends on how you handle the incoming data.

I don’t think that anything about uploading a file would help the OP.

As far as I understand he wants to record anything that sent to the sources and send this to the server.

But this is not rails related… Besides that I think nearly any makers would be capable of that. My advise would be don’t do that!

Yeah, exactly. I don't want a file upload. I want somebody to click a
button and then the audio output of for example his music application
streams to the server and then shoutcasted.

What do you mean by any makers and advise not to?

Do you mean click a button on a web page? If so then I hope that it
is not possible. It should not be possible to do such things from a
browser.

If you are not talking about in the browser and just want an app to
run on your pc to stream video to be picked up by the server then as
others have said this is nothing to do with Rails. Have a look at
apps such as VLC.

Yeah, exactly.

Since you have not quoted the message to which you are replying it is
not clear to with what you are replying. In addition you have changed
the subject line so have broken the thread, at least in some mail
clients.

I meant any malware would be capable of that. And said this correctly and not got it broken by T9 it should be clearly visible why I recommended not to do this!

Yes, that makes totally sense. I was just talking about some app that
makes a one-click-streaming to the server (with some app) possible.

So the question has nothing to do with Rails then?
