Broadcast bit rates
I know this is a weird question.  But i need some advice.
I do an internet radio show and the server is 128kps  Can i broadcast at 96kps from my Sam broadcaster.  Will it work.
I want to have a smaller size file of the show for podcast reasons.

Or is there a better way to do this.

Thank you so much for your help

Icecast does not specify bitrate, nor can bitrate be restricted.

You can send 96kbps audio to the server. Note that this may potentially broach terms of use if the server owner is expecting 128kbps streams.
