I have always streamed with one computer, but MRAM says he has a whole group of computers, but I’ll let him explain what they all do.
This computer sends a continuous stream over the internet and out the “gizout” (term coined by Marshall) to the transmitters. The radio programs are all mp3 files playlisted on Winamp.
Because my motherboard sound circuit has two audio sets, I am also able to input and record from my mixer board without interfering with the stream, and then I playback the audio for editing on that separate audio set and the stream is totally safe.
I can watch TV on Hulu without messing up the stream and can do all browsing, e-mailing, and every other type of application without disturbing the stream.
The only reason I’d need a second computer would be for backup in case the first one breaks.
