[Etoys] Fwd: Speex encoded audiobooks

the audio books below were posted to the OLPC library list. I tried
playing lookingglass_01_carroll.spx in etoys (on my Mac for starters).
Good thing: it works :)
(1) the sound quality is worse than when I played it in VLC
(2) the image locks up because the file reader service does not
return until the whole file is played
(3) the SharedQueue in the QueueSound gets ever longer because new
buffers are added even if there are still lots of buffers enqueued
Not sure what could be done about (1). About (2), we should not fork
a different process but let SoundPlayer do its thing. Perhaps
something similar like StreamingMonoSound (or can we use this
directly?). This should also solve (3).
Also, we should put up some visual representation, maybe a mini
SoundRecorder without the recording controls, which should be simple
once we use a proper StreamingSound.
One nice thing would be the ability to stream directly from a URL
rather than from a file. Like, so we could make a project that has a
morph for each of the Looking Glass chapters and plays them directly
from the web ...
