Help me find the ideal livestreaming solution!

I need to livestream a small-scale sporting event at the end of February 2015. I would probably like to continue livestreaming events for both business and personal stuff after that, so I am wondering about the best technology to invest in and system to use. [more inside]

Software to automate/schedule playback within a playlist

Need advice from desktop productivity nerds, radio nerds, MP3 playlist nerds, and general problem solving nerds. I volunteer at a community FM radio station. Everything we play is a stream from a Winamp playlist (look inside for the reasons for this). We need a piece of software (or a creative solution) that can be automated to jump to a place in a playlist and then schedule itself from there. Very complex details inside. [more inside]

How do TV channels figure out how many people watched a particular episode (e.g. XX million watched American Idol)?

How do TV channels figure out how many people watched a particular episode (e.g. XX million watched American Idol)? I often hear things like XX million viewers watched American Idol or some other show. How do the news guys / broadcasters come up with these numbers?? Surely they are not able to track what is being watched in peoples homes. So I guess this is some kind of math or projection. Any idea how this is done?

Why are there so many French internet radio stations?

Why are there so many French internet radio stations? On iTunes, they seem vastly disproportionate. Is there a legal reason, a historical reason, or something else?

Downloadable mp3 DJ Sets Legal?

I've recently launched a website featuring weekly hour-long, downloadable "dj sets" - a few other obscure music fans and myself will mix together an hour of music and then offer the hour-long, mixed mp3 for free download on the site. I'm not selling advertising on the site, nor am I making any money off of it. Is this legal?

Commercial insertion in nationally broadcast television

I am curious as to how an hour-long nationally televised program in the U.S., like say E.R., is actually broadcast. Does one person in New York or L.A. push a play button to start the show and all the commercials, or is there coordination between NBC and local affiliate technicians? For that matter, how is the entire programming day coordinated? What goes wrong to create “technical difficulties”? (Ignore the feed into satellite and/or cable TV for my purposes).
