    Hi everyone!

    Ok so what I'm looking for is a seedbox with FTP first of all (that is a MUST) because what I want to do is use he FTP to stream files. So what I need is a seedbox with FTP access to stream 1:00 64kbps mp3 files to hundreds (maybe thousands eventually) of people simultaneously. So if it's 100mbps that's enough for me but I need it to not have a max simultaneous connections limit.

    I hope this makes sense, can anyone help?

    Hmm... I don't know too much about the inner details of seedboxes but I really doubt you can do that on a basic webgui. You're probably gonna need a dedicated server/VPS where you can install programs yourself on the server. You can try OVH if you live in france or the UK, they're very cheap (although they now have a 3tb limit before throttling your connection, I don't know how much bandwidth streaming music takes)

    Isn't that possible with any dedicated machine?

    Besides, using ftp to stream content is a bit weird, but you could configure the ftp server to accept any number of simultaneous users/connections.

    Thanks for the replies. Yes I knew that with a dedicated server I could do that but seedboxes are chepaer that's why I was hoping I could do that with a seedbox.

    Thanks again.

    Well fastsh.it has VPS's, I think that allows you access to the machine but I may have no idea what I'm talking about. You're most certainly not going to be able to do anything if its just a basic seedbox with a web gui.

    Streaming over FTP? Multicast? Unicast? What server-side software? No clue what you on about m8 but better you get some specs listed about the plans you have coz not only technically we're missing a lot of info to advise on a server but you might already run out of bandwidth is you have 2K users streaming 15 MP's on a monthly basis.

    With a VPS you can run Icecast/Shoutcast servers without a problem or anything else you would run on a dedicated box. Performance depends on the size VPS and number of users on each box, slower during freeleech assaults of course as any box is.
