buffering, timeout etc...
I'm streaming live broadcast from TV station, earphone jack to soundcard. I have a host that is set up to handle 900 listeners. I'm experimenting with different input rates and encoding rates. Still have lots of buffering when 20 + listeners are on... not worth listening too. I'm using a good wireless connection, ping the server with maybe a 1% loss after several hours. By-passed my network router and still didn't help. My best luck with getting a smooth stream is input 22050HZ and encoder @ 56k 22050, I've tried up to 128k 44050HZ, which is too fast, words run together. I guess I need help tweaking everything, and would greatly appreciate it.
Would Jetcast be better?
I have two links to listen too, one is .m3u other is .asx for windows media player. This is coming off the server that I'm streaming too.
