Of course lossless streaming (truly guaranteed delivery) implies 
non-real-time streaming (or, more formally, having to deal with the 
possibility that delivery will be delayed beyond real-time), given that 
the Internet is a lossy medium.

To another thread: Yes, having the constructor for the recorder take a 
MIME type parameter would imply that you set the codec to be used. I 
think we all agree that the data coming out of a recording interface is 
encoded.
