I can successfully play multiple independant tracks with html5 api. In
order to achieve sample accurate glitch free playback I am using the
prebuffer method. However, I would like to stream the media.
Looking at the various options for streaming I have not run into a perfect
solution for streaming multiple tracks with the html5 api.
I can see several potential attack vectors.
1: extend icecast to support multiple tracks/stream
2: extend the JACK API to integrate with option 1
3: extend the html5 API - possible but it would need to have more than
just me supporting the move.
4: custom solution with new/existing multichannel codec
I'm sure that others have already thought about this problem so am I
missing something obvious?
This could be useful for other services like bandcamp, soundcloud, etc...
I think we have an opportunity to guide the direction if we come up with a
solid open source solution.
