Ok, got it all going :)   

So, to replay a recording made locally, it's basically:
//pre-recorded data
var record=[{data:[...], stamp: 123113}, … ];  

//time playback relative to "now"
var start = window.performance.now() - record[0].stamp;  
output.send(packet.data, packet.stamp + start);

I also polyfilled performance.now() for various browsers. See bottom of:

Hopefully that all looks about right now (bar the changes I made to API to make it easier to use… which I hope you will consider).
