    From The Lizard Master@NITEEYES to All on Monday, January 10, 2005 13:21:00
    Do they have a free or cheap service that you can upload some songs to a storage area that are played 24/7? Even if they insert adverts, that's cool. I just don't want to run a shoutcast server.

    Is this what you guys use NetJuke for? If so what's the bandwidth cost?

    Thanks,

    I remember Live365.com ... but I think they were just a re-streamer for shoutcast, and lately I think they have moved to some proprietary streaming protocol.

    Netjuke is just a set of PHP scripts for running a web-based jukebox. You need a Linux or Windows box, Apache, and MySQL to run it. Mine streams full-quality mp3s to machines on my LAN, and re-encodes them to medium-bitrate mono for streaming over the Internet. The bandwidth is mine.

    I probably wasn't much help. Sorry.

    Nah that's cool, I just briefly looked that the site and I got the gist it was really for local use only. How much of it is a hit to your upload bandwidth?

    My reencodes are VBR, capped at 80kbps. Most songs hover 64-70kbps, so I can get 3 simultaneous streams from my 256k upstream at home with no problem... Of course, if I have a torrent going, that takes a chunk out, too.

    I'm trying out Jetcast. Seems to work okay except it just stopped in the middle of the song list while I was jamming at work today... We'll see.
