check out my Stream Calculator located at www.radiotoolbox.com/online_tools/bandwidth.php

Click "Period Usage" to get a calculation on how much bandwidth would be used in a given period of time.

Check out the Input feature on the DSP and set it to Soundcard to have it record from a mic for you audio source instead of Winamp.

Hi there,

so i have a problem with the traffic, too.

I can´t believe what i have calculated here.

So let me give you some expressions :

I thougt about 5000 Users on a stream with 128 kbit/s 24/7.

so first of all

5000 * 128 = 640000 Kbit/s

640000 / 8 = 80000 kb/s = 78,15 Mb/s

okay now the time

78,125 Mb * 3600 = 281250 MB/h

281250 Mb * 24 = 6750000 Mb/d

6750000 Mb * 30 = 202500000 Mb / month

202500000 / 1024 / 1024 = round about 193 Tb


193 Tb ????????


Is this calculation correct ??? I can´t believe it.

Please give me an answer if i did something wrong because who can afford such big amount of traffic ??? Only in 1 month ????

Regards Highfly

Using the tool at www.radiotoolbox.com/online_tools/bandwidth.php we get:

Period: 1 Months (30 days)
Stream Bitrate: 128 Kilobit(s)
Desired Listener Max: 5000

You would consume: 1,582,031.250 Gbit(s)

This is assuming that 5000 listeners are connected 24 hours a day for 30 days.

Here's an idea: Start smaller.

also generally speaking the yp directory will not list you as a 5000 usermax server, last I heard the limit was 1000, so if you do need that many slots consider using relays.

No i don´t think about 5 k users. i only think about 300 to 500 users.

But it´s for a gameradio and that´s the only one here in germany for that game.

I calculated with 5k useres because of an advertise where you can get an account at a provider for 99$ and you can serve 100 users. So i thought about this and asked me how that my be affordable for this provider when he has 50 customers.

Okay my problem right now is that i have my own server at a german internet provider but only 50 Gb / month free. Because of this my own server i want to install a streaming server on this machine. But now i think it will be impossible for me to do that because of the traffic.

So that´s my problem

Does anybody here know a provider where it´s possible to serve 300 - 500 users for an affordable price ???

It`s only a private project and i don´t have so much money to afford such amount of traffic.

Regards Highfly
