    Say 5000 viewers. I'm guessing it would probably cost around a few hundred a month right? This won't be HD video, probably 480p with some compression done to it. Anyone familiar with this kind of stuff that doesn't mind divulging information?

    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]How much budget you have? For most of the dedicated servers are well affordable nowadays so I'd recommend you to contact several web hosts through phone or live chat. You can also consider cloud hosting servers which is quite affordable solution and alternative option for dedicated server, but it also depends on whether you like virtualization environment or not.
