I was hoping to stream to my pc at work but I apparently do not have
enough bandwidth to do so with my cableone cable modem. Is there any way
to reduce the bitrate of the stream without compromising the quality
locally?

edit conver.conf from this:

mp3 mp3 http *
-

to this

mp3 mp3 http *
$lame$ --silent -b 96 $FILE$ -

and if you need http at home with full bandwidth add this:

mp3 mp3 http 127.0.0.1
$lame$ --silent -b $BITRATE$ $FILE$ -

and more copies of the above for each IP at home that you want. Make sure you
have LAME installed.
