I've got a dedicated server running my portal. Now we plan to soon launch broadcasting, where we via a webcam + microphone will broadcast (streaming WMV media) to all our members. Our members will then be able to interact with the speakers via chatting.

Now we are currently undergoing loadtesting, with our current setup, which is:

1. dedicated server+ultrafast connection=>chatting
2. home PC with static IP and 1 MBit upload=>Video+Audio Streaming

So the member requests a page from the dedicated server, which has a chat window and a windows media player. The player will retrieve the video/audio content from the home PC. This is done by the client.

Now is pretty logical to see that there will be limitations in how many connections the home pc will be able to handle.

The question is: How do i make the dedicated server get the content from the home pc (so it only serves one connection) and then get all the clients to get their video content from the dedicated server ?

I've looked into the proxy modules for the apache server, however they (forward/reverse proxy) both passes the connection on to the remote machine and thereby not doing what I want to do.

So suggestion on how this can be accomplished ?
