HI Guys,

I want to create a new shoutcast-radio-station, but I doubt a little bit about the user-access and uploadstream. I read about 1.024 max. users, but your station have about 10.000 users or are all your station counted togehter??

I´m very thankfull for any answer!

Tom

It all depends on what your upload bandwidth is.  personally I wouldn't try and start a station on your home Internet Connection.  It's just not reliable enough and it doesn't have the upload bandwidth you need.

I'd look into buying a dedicated server with unlimited bandwidth hosted at a good Data Center.

BTW, if you want to see how many listeners you can support the guys at radio tool box created a great tool to do that.  You can find it here:  http://www.radiotoolbox.com/online_tools/bandwidth.php

Hope that helps.
