Can anyone broadcast on shoutcast without cost or do they have to pay? If pay, what does it cost. Is broadcast to 100-200 listeners possible with ordinary computer?

Thanks,
Tom

Thanks Jay,
I made some inquiries from that site. The email account I was using had problems for a while that I just resoved so I got delayed in pursuing. I am renewing my efforts. Tom

if u use ur own computer u need allot of bandwidth

if you broadcast to 20 users @ 128k it will use 20 x 128k = 2048K/sec

thats upload not download

upload is usually allot smaller than download speed

so your only real option is to get a host unless you have that kinda bandwidth
