Different Bitrates

hey!

i have a vds server and i want to play with multiple streams, lets say: 24-48-64

i cant stream them all at once from my computer, my upload is 128kbps...
so, is there a way, to send 64kbps from my comp to my server, and use some kind of configuration to convert the stream to multiple bitrates?

i have my own server, i can host as many shoutcasts i want :P
i know about relay servers, but i think that relay servers use the same bitrate with the master server.

can a relay server convert bitrate?

as far as i know, a relay server is just that.. a relay, and doesn't re-encode anything.

is it possible for a relay service to re-encode into multiple bitrate streams, sure why not.

if you are running your own server, it is extremely easy. use shoutcast dsp to encode to the desired bitrates, then connect them to their own shoutcast server (in your case, 3 instances of shoutcast server, each using a different port)

-128kbps upload wouldnt even get you 1 listener on each stream

If you want a system to re-encode a stream, check out oddsock's stream transcoder.

If you are looking for a remotely hosted transcoder, or shoutcast relay server - feel free to get in touch with me, or visit www.wavestreaming.com
