greetings!

wanted to say thank you for all of the support i
received from this list.  finally got my icecast
server up and running, and it sounds awesome!

got another one for you:

running icecast2 and ices-0.3 (in the process of
converting to ogg properly)

we want to have multiple streams for listeners with
differing connections (24k, 64k, 128k)

is it best to create three different directories of
mp3s encoded at the mentioned bitrates, then start
ices with three different playlists on three different
ports.

or, is it better to just have one directory of the
mp3s, and have ices reencode them to the proper
bitrate.

i think the first method would use less cpu power, but
is this possible?  if so, how?

thanks!

jg
