    Always remember that you get what you pay for. There are a lot of quality hosts that are a reasonable cost that provide great service.

    I have tried Caster in the background. I have an active account. It's a pretty stable service. I have not run it full time on the station, because there are global shutdowns of the server every 3 or so days. But it does run on purely icecast.
    I just don't have the time to continue to reset it from the control panel, etc....with a full time 8-5 and running my station, server shutdowns are not good for me. But if u otherwise have the time on your hands and want to stream to icecast, then....hey, give it a go. Caster works.

    Also RadioLoyalty runs on Icecast, if you want to imbed an ad filled player on your site to make some moeny. It's free also.

    I Just Tried Caster.fm And I Think it doesn't have a raw stream url, or public address to make listings on other directories e.g: tunein radio, iTunes, Windows Media

    Radio Loyalty Is Really Nice Too But i have question on radioloyalty, is their icecast server a raw stream that i can publish my own show onto the other directory?

    You can try http://radioboss.fm (I'm the owner of this one). We offer Shoutcast v2 servers for free. No ads, but 50 listeners limit. You'll get raw stream url which you can use anywhere you want.

    Beware: we don't hold any warranties. As MarcAlle said, you get what you pay for. If you're serious about radio, get ready to spend some funds.

    Yup, but I saw that he's looking for free ones, so I thought SCv2 will do.

    Hi,

    I use FSC too but let me advise you, the free service crashes a bit.
