Although Johnny does all the post production and may have a more technical answer for you, I can tell you that when we started the radio format
of 90 minutes to 2 hours, we were told by The Amigos that the size of the show was killing the servers. Having 23 million subscribed fans of the show
literally almost crashed the huge ATS SERVERS a few weeks back when in one day alone, there were over 3 million downloads of a show in less than two
hours or something like that. Because we need to keep it in radio format
when our number is called, we have had to do several things to make
the file sizes within a 30 meg size. We are already going over the 24 meg limit for shows by 6 meg, even at that. One other problem in the upload
process is the server timing out at 5 minutes. Depending on the internet traffic (I have Platinum Cable Top Tier even) if it takes more than 5
minutes, the server will time out on us and we have to repeat the process again. In some cases, it has taken multiple attempts to get it up within the
server time out restraints.
The bottom line
..... if we had our way, we would be putting the shows up in the highest quality possible. They are GOOD
the restrictions that we operate under...... so it's just gonna have to do my brother.
Always appreciate your insightful comments.
