I got DSL 2000 (280k/bits down, 19 up to 40 k/bits up), now I want to stream me for example coding live, so at a low FPS rate. Would this be possible, and which tool / provider should I use for such low FPS rated streaming? (feel free to post Windows Tools, if there are no matching available for Linux)

Sorry you're trying to make a stream of you on your computer? Screenshots or video from a webcam? – Oli Oct 19 '10 at 11:35
trying to stream of my own computer like "" – daemonfire300 Oct 19 '10 at 12:31
And you need audio at the same time? – Oli Oct 19 '10 at 13:37
audio should be streamed to, because I want to stream music or comment on what I am doing – daemonfire300 Oct 19 '10 at 18:30

why not give vlc streaming a try ? use lower bit rates and you should be good to go
