I think ADSL 768kbps means that you have 768kbps download and less than this
upload? What is your upload-bandwith?

Take that bandwith and divide it by the kbps of your streams. For good radio
using mp3 it should be 96-128 kbps, for ogg it should be around 64 kbps.

upstream is 768 kbps, this means you can provide a maximum of 6 streams
128kbps each or 12 streams 64 kbps.
