[linux-audio-user] Midi streaming

Is there a way to play midi from a URL while it is downloading?

timidity http://... doesn't, it waits until the entire file has
downloaded before playing. pmidi only accepts a filename, not a url.

Timidity++ and fluidsynth are able to act as servers that respond to
midi events in realtime, but is there an easy way to hook this feature
up to read events from a url stream while it is being downloaded?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Ryan Heise
