Does somebody knows of a streaming server which i can use for streaming audio, and, the most important, that i can use a remote source for live streaming ?
We want to setup a news station (we're a university project) and we would like to stream from our website every day during one hour. But we're not in the same physical location where the server (with the good internet connection) is. So we'd need to connect from our house, just one person to use his microphone, mp3, whatever and send the audio from there to the server which will use this source as the source for any user which wants to connect. Audio quality is very "basic" we expect just like 15 kbps which should be more than enough by now (teamspeak uses 5kbps).
Also, which would be the best way to connect for users ? a flash player ? a wm plugin ? i know most of the linux based servers use mp4 and ogg, which client coudl be used ? (worst case would be to use shoutcast as server and have users use winamp to listen. But even in this case we don't know how to use the remote (live) source as the one to broadcast).
Could be either linux or window. Be it free or cheap please, below US$ 100. Thanks !
