Ive made a small C program which binds into a port and can be used to open and close stdin->stdout on demand so i can do:
ecasound -a:1,2 -i:/dev/dsp -a:1 -o lowquality.mp3 -a:2 -o stdout | myprogram | lame highquality.mp3
So i just need to connect to the right port tell him to start and lame encodes, when i say stop it stops. If someone is interested i can post client/server sources, they are very simple.
again, great program,
