I would like to be able to convert audio files to MP3 to the users browser on the fly. The software I am using is: Apache, PHP & FFMPEG on an ubuntu system. Here is the code I have so far:
<?php header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary"); header("Content-Type: audio/mpeg, audio/x-mpeg, audio/x-mpeg-3, audio/mpeg3"); passthru('ffmpeg -i song.flac -v 0 -ab 320k -f mp3 -'); ?>
With this code, only the first few seconds of the audio are converted, however, when I comment out the header functions, the audio file is completely converted but all binary data is passed through to the screen (instead of wrapped in the browsers mp3 player).
