streamin/out~ and streamin13/out13~ both have several bugs that don't 
show that much affect on Linux. Don't know about OS X, but at least on 
Windows they don't work at all.
You might want to have a look at netsend~/netreceive~ which does 
basoically the same it is known to be working, although it's still in 
alpha stage.
