I used to do this to suck MP3s to my workplace... in realtime :-)
I tried http from home but it was too slow - the mp3s needed about
12K/sec and (at the time) I had about 10K/sec upstream.
so I ran this (paraphrased) little script
ssh <disable encryption> <me at home> 'mpg123 /home/ian/mp3collection/*.mp3
| lame -abr <options to get an abr mp3 at about 96-128Kbit/sec> - -' |
which would connect securely to home, decompress my mp3s there,
re-encode them at a lower bitrate, suitable for transmission to work,
pipe them over the ssh link, and then re-decode them at work.
I *never* heard a skip in about 6 months of using it.
the home machine was my K6-III 400. it used about 40% CPU to do that.
