You should look at my old javacast code (probably in the icecast-1.0
module in cvs). I couldn't get it, even on fast jvm's, to reliably
serve more than 2-3 people. Java just doesn't seem to have the I/O
processing power that is needed for multimedia streaming.
Are you having better luck? Or did my code just suck that badly? :)
