So I can't Shoutcast direct through my dial-up for "mass consumption" because I need more bandwidth than is available to a regular PC using dial-up? (yes; no). Can I broadcast *anything* right now using the default DNAS connections found in the software?
My thought was to broadcast from my PC - through my dial-up - to get the hang of the whole system. I would start out broadcasting to a handful of listeners before "going public" (which will actually be an extremely limited audience and I would "advertise" directly to this audience). When I go public, I would then see about leasing server time or talking a few of my friends into server access through their hardware.
If my ISP provides webspace, can this be configured to handle streaming bandwidth? (yes; no)
What I hear you saying is that I cannot, in any way, broadcast from my PC through the Shoutcast DNAS without a configured server; that I can't just go to my basement now, connect to the default DNAS found on the software and start broadcasting. (yes; no)
