[LAU] A webserver with on-the-fly format conversion?

I'm trying to make a large collection of audio files available through a
HTTP server. The collection consists of mostly Ogg Vorbis and MP3, and a
couple of files in other formats. Unfortunately, the client that's
supposed to play the files does not support any of these formats except
Is there any way to set up a webserver that will automatically convert
the various audio file formats to MP3?
I'm not looking for a web radio, instead each file should be accessible
individually and look just like a regular MP3 to the client. Some kind
of streaming would be nice though (so the client can start playback
before the whole file is converted/transferred).
Any suggestions how this could be done?
