I just started listening about 3 days ago and I thought that, if it's possible, you could do this (topic). It's a good radio station none-the-less but I think increasing the KBPS would help with the music quality and shouldn't affect people with dialup too much.

No fucking way!

1) It would be impossible to listen with modem.
2) I'll have to pay twice as much for traffic.
3) Less people woud be able to connect: currently there is 110 people cap, but if you double the bitrate there would be 55 max.

Well they don't have to get rid of the 24KBPS version. They could run 2 different KBPS stations like most other winamp radio stations.

I knew there would be a cost. I was only suggesting. And I didn't say 128 I said 56.

How about an OGG stream?
IN FACT HOW ABOUT RADIO KOL USE PEERCAST
[[ Except, listeners need the peercast client :/ But you can have a lot more listeners and use less bandwidth ]]

To the best of my knowledge, Shoutcast doesn't support OGG. Icecast does, but then you need to find an Icecast host. Using specialized software, while certainly appealing, also means you need to have a lot more control over your server. That pumps the cost up into the astonomical levels. You are talking colocation and fees up the flaming wazoo.

It's a good idea if some nice person out there wants to donate a dedicated server on a high bandwidth pipe.
