Do you maybe mean Opus (RFC 6716)?

I like it when the IETF uses open technologies like this and it seems most operating systems support it now.

Opus also supports multi-channel audio which would be great for multiple microphones.

I would support using Opus over MP3 but that is not the main obstacle. We need a way to map live streams to sessions in the API to restore widespread access to the streams.

Thanks,
