butt is a Linux tool that grabs audio data from your sound card.
You can change the audio settings (bitrate, channels) while you are streaming.
Cause butt isn't a multithreaded application, the selection
of a new bitrate shouldn't take more than a few secs.
Otherwise the server may disconnect you, because it doesn't receive any data while you are looking for a new bitrate.
Since version 0.1.1 butt is able to record and stream simultaneously - in diffrent bitrates.
For example you can stream with 96kbit and record with 192kbit.
