anyone done live radio on their site?
I'd like to offer live radio via my website. The radio stations concerned are keen so no problem there. I believe that they do digital broadcasts so that should make things easier (or so I'm told).
How do I go about putting them on my site. Is there some software (shareware hopefully) that I could use? Is there a forum or website where I could read up on the subject?
Any help most welcome.

Hi, I think you should look for icecast (www.icecast.org) or realserver (www.realnetworks.com) the first is opensource, the second has a basic version which is free, it's easier to manage but is limited in number of contemporaryl users, but the main problem for you will be the bandwidth consumed!
Apple quicktime/darwin straming server (www.opensource.apple.com) should be worth an eye, but I don't know if it's suitable for audio only.
Hope this helps!

thanks for pointing me in the right direction
I'm browsing the icecast website right now and will try the second one later. Thanks again
