Budget is £50/month.:-) I already have a decent quality (analogue) audio/video feed. I'm looking for pointers on: 1. Encoding: QuickTime, Helix or WindowsMedia? Open source?? 2. Uplink: no WiFi. One possibility in the UK is T-mobile's web 'n walk card (£17/month for 385kbps). Anybody tried this solution with streaming media? 3. Hosting: Plenty of commercial options out there. What I need is cheap.
