I’m happy to report that WDBX is streaming online again! It has been a bit of a wait, but we’re finally at a respectable bitrate as well– 128kbps, not too shabby. The stream is being provided by Mayer Networks, a local IT firm. Right now, I’ve been unable to open the stream VLC, but the Windows Media Player (yeech) and WinAmp seem to handle it just fine.
For those who are especially interested, the stream is in the Microsoft Media Server protocol– I’m going to have to do a bit more digging, but it seems like you can record this sort of stream directly using a program called Gmms.
Mayer Networks will be load-testing in the next few weeks. What better way to give them a real run for their money and have all of us tune in online for this week’s “It’s Too Damn Early” broadcast?
