I've seen a couple of references that estimate bandwidth at 05. to 1.0 Mb per minute, with talk only being at the lower end.

Here's one:

So, 90 mins would be in the range of 45 - 90 Mb, or significantly less than 1 Gig

So which is it? Not enough demand for this, or too much demand?

There's ways to defray the cost, if cost becomes an issue. And yes, we should know the reasonable cost to implement this or any other change.

It does depend on the sampling rate on the audio. 1 MB per minute would be some pretty high quality sound for listening to your favorite tunes. I have some radio quality podcasts on this laptop that run about 13MB for a 40 to 45 min show. Still runs into a lot of bandwidth if it became popular.

I wouldn't think it would necessarily have to start by keeping all the old meetings on the server. Maybe just have the last month or two meetings hosted online at a time.

Of course keeping the old ones would be great, but even the last one or two is better then nothing.

Sure it's a cost, but I don't know if I'd consider it an expense.

I know when people say bit torrent they all think of stealing but bit torrents are a cheap and easy way of distributing content like this.

Greg Rempe distributes copies of his radio show online all the time. I bet he could provide an idea as to how expensive it would be.

I dunno... for the access, I would be willing to pay a little for it... I mean, I have no problems dropping 99 cents for an old 1980's tune on iTunes... Maybe I am the only one though...
