    100 x 350 kbps + 100 x 10 kbps for safety + 400kbps for uploading the stream that's delivered to users = 36400 kbps or about 37mbps.

    So you'll need a server with 100mbps port, and if those 100 visitors are watching 24/7 video, you'll need at the end of the month about 12.2 TB

    100 mbps = 33 TB
    37 mbps = ?

    ? = 37 x 33 / 100 = 12.21

    In reality, you'll probably be fine with a server with about 6-10 TB of bandwidth, as I doubt those 100 visitors will be watching continuously or will be 100 at the same time 24/7

    What kind of broadcast will you be streaming? Live events, pre-recorded?

    CPU and RAM are barley used with streaming (yes, video uses more than audio, but it still doesn't use much). All you need to worry about is bandwidth.

    I would go with a Core2Duo or a dual core just to be safe, even though I think a P4 could handle it fine.
