Downsampling streaming MP3s in Windows...

I've been playing around with Edna, which is a Python streaming MP3
server. My setup is a WindowsXP box with Python 2.3. I'd like to
downsample my high bitrate files, and based on some suggestions I
found on the Edna mailing list, I replaced the line where the MP3 was
being opened with the following line:
f = win32pipe.popen('c:\lame\lame --mp3input -f -b 64 "' + fullpath +
'" -', 'r')
where "fullpath" contains the path to the MP3 file. When try to listen
to the results through WinAmp, the stream seems to buffer up, but then
I get a few seconds of choppy noise and then nothing.
Do I need to somehow buffer the pipe on the server side? Any
suggestions would be appreciated.
