you're right! but still, my cable connection is restricted in my country, it was supposed to be 1MB or superior, having >128 upload stream, but the company stuck me, and the others, with speeds of <640kbps (no one has ever reached that or more) and 128upload (this one no one reached as well), and more, we have limited traffic, 1GB international internet traffic and 20 GB national traffic. This is ridiculous!! In my country there are no internet contents that justify 20GB, the maximum anyone has ever reached (in domestic usage) was 10GB!! And 1GB for international, where do they think we users can get software, music, and good quality contents with 1GB!!!! I really hate my cable provider, but there is no other, and i can't have xdsl.
Ohh well... i guess i'll just stick to SHOUTcast audio streams with low encodings, that i know i can do perfectly
Still... my computer can handle video compression, not at high definitions, but in low definitions i know it can, i tried it once, the computer slowed down a little of course, but not so much that makes it useless to be doing something else while video is compressing. So i think the problem is more in the bandwidth than in the computer's speed, even if i had the latest "top-computer" i would still be stuck on the bandwidth.
I will not try video stream with this system, but sometime later i will surelly do that.
Thanks everyone for the tips and the help you all gave me
