    *AS MUCH LISTENERS, MAY BE 500 OR MORE.
    *A GOOD SIZE HARDDISK ON THE SERVER TO STORE ARCHIVED SHOWS.
    *A CHATROOM, SO THE DJ CAN MONITOR..
    *SOME SORT OF MESSEGING POPUP CLIENT FOR PRIVATE MESSAGING TO THE DJ FOR SHOUT OUT.
    *LIVE CALLS
    *STREAMING AUDIO AT AROUND 20 KBPS TO 32KBPS, NOT TO SURE ABOUT THE RESSOLUTION OF THE WEBCAM.( not that important just yet)
    * I WILL LIKE TO STREAM FROM 2 LOCATION AT DIFFRENT TIMES AS I WILL BE LIVING ON CAMPUS AND COMING HOME DURING HOLIDAYS.

    I'm very interested in this subject as well. Do you have any info on the legal aspects of broadcasting?

    Thank you

    I think it's legal to Shoutcast any song, as long as you don't sell access to the server.

    But, I'm not a lawyer, so I wouldn't know.

    And, you're gonna need a very nice server with some killer bandwidth amounts if you expect to hold 500+ listeners at a decent bitrate.

    We have a few customers who is doing streaming with shoutcase and windows at the moment. Both of them are quite simple to setup. But if you are planning to stream pictures, then I would recommend windows as it is very easy to setup. But streaming pictures does use a lot of bandwidth...

    If you need any advices give me a shout.

    OT - Can you take your caps lock off when posting, it is deemed to be shouting and is extremely rude.
