    Streaming and bandwidth

    If I play an Internet radio station at work will it suck bandwidth from the server?

    I think so. My office had to tell people to stop playing stations 'cause it was killing the server. Don't know if it's just limited to certain types of streams though.

    Streaming is banned here. It won't even go through the firewalls.

    What it does is hogs network bandwidth, nothing to do with any server on your network. Streaming media, whether from the outside or not can be a killer depending on the size of your network and your allocated bandwidth. The worsed and most common are FM radio broadcasts, they require a large pipe to deliver quality audio.
