I'm helping a friend set up a streaming service for a day and he's asked me a question that does beyond my knowledge of DNS. I'm hoping you can help.
We've been provided equipment that (when turned on) automatically streams through stream487.streamingcompany.com:8175. Now, this isn't bad, but we'd prefer to set something up so that our visitors who want to open the stream directly can type streaming.oureventdomain.com into a media player to have access.
We can (and will be) providing .pls files for easy streaming, but think the custom subdomain would be a nice touch. We have full access to the server on oureventdomain.com, but not much access to the streamingcompany.com stuff (Though they have been flexible).
Any ideas or help would be appreciated. :)
