A friend of my recently asked me to help him set up a web based radio. Upon doing some research I found he has only original content (not copy right stuff), all static mp3 files, not live talk, and wants to loop the audio.
I've found sites like radionomy and some free shoutcast hosting sites but they all either inject ads into the audio or make you use a page covered in ads.
I got to thinking: In .NET/asp I can set the headers/mime type of my page as say pdf/excel file/zip file etc and the browser offers it as a download.
In PHP (his server only supports php) is it possible to set a file mime type as some sort of streaming file m3u or something? It would of course need to keep serving mp3s so when one finished another one would start.
Curious if anyone has some input on the subject matter!
