Long story short - online radio with both admin and client interfaces in flash (it will be browser based radio).

I cant figure out the best way to mix live audio stream from microphone with uploaded media files (e.g. mp3). I have considered Red5, FMS and Wowza as possible server solutions for this, but have no idea how to make it work together.

Shouldnt this be on stackoverflow ? – Sirex Dec 29 '10 at 11:44
No. This belongs here. The bulk of the question is about the serverside software. – Tom O'Connor Dec 29 '10 at 13:03
You don't say what you have tried to make the products you mentioned work together, and at the moment your question is effectively "I can't be bothered with this, do it for me". You might consider editing your question to include some of the steps you've taken so far. – Ben Pilbrow Dec 29 '10 at 13:10

It would have been helpful if you'd mentioned any constraints regarding operating systems / budget.

Jack might be useful for the mixing, gstreamer provides (basic) mixing and a streaming server (and can integrate with Jack)

I would prefer unix environment but in general there are no limitations about operating system. Budget is also theoretically unlimited (anyway the price of software must be reasonable). – Vilis Jan 3 '11 at 13:13

Check out liquidsoap.

It can schedule multiple input streams and create file-based streams from an mp3 playlist. You could use a simple flash player like ffmp3

A flash-bashed admin interface is not available for liquidsoap.
