I'm torn between livestream and justin.tv, they both worked out great for me. Ustream, not so much and definitely not stickam.

Well, I may do two streams.  I have enough bandwidth for it, but I can say that firefox can't handle three at once for too many hours.  It's crashed twice now in the last 20 hours.

Sorry, Justin.tv fans - it's way too fucking annoying to get a stream up on that site.  Every time I load the broadcaster I have to reconfigure it.  It doesn't seem to be a platform for serious content providers.

Audio levels have been corrected for Livestream.  Now using their Procaster app, so if firefox crashes on Ustream, Livestream will continue.

Thanks for your input!  For now I'm using both Livestream and Ustream and Livestream's app has replaced Ustream's at http://cam.freetalklive.com  Ustream is linked to as a viewing alternative in the questions area of the page.

Every time I attempt to listen to the radio program, no matter what the source/media, it just stops after a minute or so.
I have no idea why so I don't bother listening.  It's quite frustrating.  Is it buffering??  What can I do about it? 
Thanks for any suggestions/comments.

1. Check for updates.
2. Try a different media player.
3. Make sure you have some disk space.
3. Shut down other programs, especially iTunes.
4. Try a different internet provider.
5. Try a different or new sound card.
If it was a buffering problem, it would cycle on and off.
Mine shuts down after about 30 to 40 hours. I don't know why. I've been assuming that Ian changes something or restarts on his end.
