Thanks mike
let me get more detailed for you all then.

As i understand it - ICECAST - is actually the streaming server itself
but where does it reside?

I am looking to go back to broadcasting from a streaming server on a 24/7
basis.
I was looking through the documentation on the icecast site but
it talks of detials that i did not have to handle and my host company did.
What im looking for is:
A) How would i gain access of use of an icecast streaming server
B) What are the costs involved (per listener or per block of listeners)
C) Will i be able to have direct access to uploading the audio for streaming
D) Will i be able to have direct access to setting / editing a playlist of
the files.
F) When my djs Do their shows LIVE, what tools are usualy used or best
implemented for streaming directly to the icecast server from the djs remote
location.

How are we supposed to answer questions like these, when you don't say
what you're trying to do?

Icecast is a streaming media server. The website, including the
documentation, has a lot more details.

As of this moment i find that the streaming system that has been made
available to me might be taken offline and would no longer be
an option from my hosting company.
What is ICECAST and would it work for what i need?
Would it include the certain features that i would require for user
capability?
