are there any decent alternatives to live audio streaming [via. soundcard]
to darkice or liveice? after a few days fighting with darkice, i finally
managed to bring it up only to see that it takes 55% of my cpu just to
encode one 128kbps stream using libmp3lame. a similar 128kbps stream only
takes up 36% cpu using liveice. maybe i have something configured wrong, but
i was sortof expecting darkice to be a little less resource intensive than

maybe i have something configured incorrectly with darkice?

in any event, if there are some great alternatives to liveice or darkice out
there, i'd be happy to look into them. i was extremely happy to have found
ices a few months ago. it had been there all along, just not described or
explained very well. i'm guessing there is something else out there i just
didn't notice yet waiting to be used. =)
