"normalize" can fix this on mp3 files.  Is there a way to do the same thing
with streaming audio?

I have a question instead of an answer. Do you run the
normalize before you play the mp3 file, or do you normalize
while you are playing? I ask because normalize means that
the amplitude of the whole file is raised until the loudest
sound in the file is at or just below some max amplitude.
You see the problem? Until the whole streaming file has
arrived there is no way for any normalize routine to know
what the maximum amplitude in the file is, and thus adjust
the rest of it.
So I would say there probably isn't a normalize for
streaming audio. Unless there is some kind of buffer and
delay. i.e. you're always one song behind. Or you like
listening to music that has no dynamics. :-)
