Question convert WMA to MP3 stream on-the-fly


for converting a WMA to a MP3 stream 24h by day, I consider to lease a virtual server.
Is this basically possible in linux (ubuntu server 8.04), maybe with Video LAN Client software?

In windows my command line is for my network
vlc --qt-start :sout=#transcode{acodec=mp3,ab=320,channels=2,samplerate=48000}:std{access=http,mux=raw,dst=:8080}
Thank you,
sinceraly yours,

PS: Sorry for my bad english.

Hi mmrtnt,
hi anybody else,

thank you for answering, mmrtnt.

Can you be sure of your solve working? Particularly with regard to the WMA-Stream.

Did somebody stream a WMA to a MP3 on Linux?

Because this is for next time the single reason for me leasing a virtual server - and it costs not a little bit of money.
