Can you be a bit more explicit?
You can send the file to a url using http or ftp.
That will create a copy of the file on the remote server
but I get the feeling that's not what you mean?

It speaks http, and http is a text based protocol, like most internet
protocols. But urllib is normally used for reading from a url not
writing files to it. (Although it might support that too, but I've never
used it for that...)

Creating a wav file is completely different to sending it to a remote

But this bit I don't understand? Do you mean sending the file itself?
Or are you trying to play the recorded sound over the network to a url?
If the latter how do you imagine the server will respond?What text do
you expect back?
