[buug] Streaming Audio Question

I want to make my interviews available on the web. They'll need to be
played as streaming audio, however I haven't found yet, some utility that
will let me convert these sound files into .ram format (Real Audio). At
first, I jsut assumed that .mp3 is a de facto streaming audio format, but
I gues that was a wrong assumption. (Or maybe there's a streaming audio
utility or plug-in for mp3, that I don't know about?)
I didn't realize that Real had a monopoly on sttreaming audio...for which
I'd need Real Producer, which costs $299! Someone suggested I use Windows
Media, which will convert my sound files into .wpm, which is also
streaming audio...but I hate the idea of making my files available only to
users of Windoze98.
So, am I missing something here? Is there perhaps a utility dedicated to
simply converting a sound file into streaming audio? (Or plug-in?) My
interviews are in 10mb segments: eqivalent to 10 minutes each.
