Encoding software is installed on a computer where the radio show is being broadcast from. This compresses the signal and sends it to an internet radio server with plenty of bandwidth (like ours).
The internet radio server recieves the stream from the broadcasting software and relays it to the listeners player. The radio server requires large amounts of bandwidth to cater for all the connecting listeners. We can provide these.
The Internet radio player connects to the server to recieve the radio stream. This could be a standalone player like VLC, Winamp, iTunes, Windows Media Player etc... OR a flash player embeded in your web site.
