"You can create a mirror and post a link to it
somewhere where listeners are watching or send it to the station or
stream manager. Then some people can tune in to your mirror instead
of the original stream reducing the load and increasing the
stability of the stream for everyone.
"So let's see how to set this up. Ideally you would have a
server online (VPS or dedicated), but this could be done at home
too. I will cover a GNU/Linux set up with emphasis on Ubuntu or
Debian since this is what most people are likely to be using. You
will need to have a terminal open. If you use GNOME (Ubuntu's
default desktop environment) try gnome-terminal and if you're using
KDE (Kubuntu) try konsole."
