I do this with a buffer probe as part of the boxtream project, which can
currently be downloaded from :

I use it while sending streams to an IceCast2 server while at the same
time saving the stream to disk on the encoder side.

The pause() method in ensures that when the end user presses
the "Pause" button, only the disk recording is paused, but not the live
