Does anyone know if its possible to send audio to my host and relay it "live" to my visitors?
Basically im interested in doing a radio show but wont even bother if its reliant on my own bandwidth. I know real networks offer the use of their servers but the fees are ridiculous for a site like mine.
Alternatively does anyone know of any free servers for this?

It is quite easy to turn Apache into an MP3 streaming server with the module mod_mp3.
Bandwidth issues are of course related to the bitrate used to encode the files and the number of requests.

Hope this helps,

Matthias

Thanks mapostel
Any response is of help.
Not sure If I explained my self correctly (excuse my ignorance)
I basically want to relay live audio to my visitors but I want to use my hosts bandwidth.
So if I have 50 people listening I will still be uploading to the server at the same rate while their servers will obviously be using more bandwidth the more listeners there are.
Is your response still valied?
