Because you want to control the stream from a HTTP server, then 
perhaps you would be better off just streaming the MP3 via HTTP (like 
most MP3 streaming these days).

If, however, you want to stream via RTP, then you should control the 
stream using RTSP (the standard control protocol for RTP streams).
