hey kids, copy a mp3 file to a web host and making a link to play it does not stream it, its downloads the mp3 to the player. So acting like its a radio station is BS, its a mp3 download point. This is the case with any webhost that isnt running streaming server. Sure HTTP (web) appears to stream because the player will buffer and start to play it as it downloads to the player itself, but its not a real stream.
I would'nt use tripod or other free webs because after a few hits, you used up your monthly bandwidth because you have large amounts of data e.g. MP3's compared to a HTML which is text and gif, png, jpeg pics that also are quire small compared to a mp3.
Thanks spaceplay for the shout!.
So if you need help with shoutcast, post here. If you need help setting up a webpage to store mp3 and make a site look a radio station, hire someone to create the html, and hope your webhost can support php, pearl, python and other server scripting.
