Struggling Dj needs your help

By colin_mckevitt ·
Hello Guys 'n Gals. I am having installed to my house broadband cable by NTL, I wish to take advantage of this by streaming live audio for a couple of hours each night from my record decks, maybe present a few of my Dj friends also. Helping viewers with IT related topics etc. Can someone tell me where I can get the relevant software to do this and if my ISP may be able to act as my server or do I need to do that myself. If this works will you all tune in, log on, and listen?

I know that Windows 2000 Advanced Server has the facility to do Live streaming using media player. You could go to winamp.com and have a look there, but i think you might have to pre record the session convert it to MP3 to allow for others to listenvia winamp. Real audio could be another option, but I think you might have to purchase the software to do it.

Your ISP I don't think will host it for you. You will have to use your own PC as a live streaming server, but you might have to ask your ISP if you can get a static IP address, otherwise everytime you go online you will have a different IP and have to re advertise it for people to connect to it.

Hope this helps .....

Hi, not to be the bearer of bad news, but don't forget to carefully read your agreement from your broadband provider. The company here (Comcast) and many other ones specifically prohibit any use that looks like any kind of server. There are some providers that will allow such things, but of course they then ask for more money! If you can do this, you're sure to make the other customers on your 'drop' very unhappy with their remaining bandwidth! If your provider says this is OK, then go for it and have fun. ---Will
