    Hi all,
    I broadcast a live stream over the internet, however the amount of people that can connect is limited by my homes internet connection.
    I was wondering if it would be possible for me to stream my audio to my server (with a 100MBit connection) and then people to connect to that rather than me.
    This would allow more people to connect because they would all be connected to my server and only 1 connection (between me and my server) would be on my homes net connection.
    Is this possible ? and is there any software out there to do this ?
    Thanks in advance.
    Sam

    You don't have to rent anything from them. It supports Windows, Mac, Linux & FreeBSD.
