"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."
