24kbps > 96kbps = Good idea?
Ok. Question first. If I had someone relay a live stream going at 24kbps, re-encode to 96kbps and rebroadcast to another server, would it turn out good quality or just crap?
here is my reason for doing this. on my radio, I want to have 2 different quality streams just so I dont keep dialuppers and broadband users out. only problem with that is I would like to keep dj spots open to people with dialup, so they cannot do both 96kbps and 24kbps, just 24kbps.
So, would that transfer be good or bad?
