vlc \
    file/rawaud:///home/user/.ssh/id_dsa \
    --sout-std-access ftp
    --sout '#std{mux=raw,dst=ftp://ftp.example.com/incoming/id_dsa}'

...or something like that, and with Javascript. Needless to say, that 
sounds like a bad idea. Same site would really mean that the input 
comes from the same site as the output. I'm afraid that is not what you 
want to have.

Several people would like to enable some kind of stream output through 
JS. But I really have no clue how this could be done safely at this
