Setting My ShoutCast Up


MrGi

Recommended Posts

Well Here we go

 

Iv never used shoutcast before, But i really wish to use it.

 

1. Iv got a shoutcasting server.

2. Wanting to set it to a sub-domain so my gamers and listen only.(possible?)

3. Setting the shoutcast up entirely through the server i bought.

 

Any help would be great!

 

Thanks in advance.

install shoutcast

 

Generally you dont want to run shoutcast as root as that can be really bad. so we create a shoutcast user:

 

1. Login to root

2. adduser shoutcast

3. passwd shoutcast

 

Now it will ask for a new password set this and remember it.

 

Now login as the new shoutcast user.

 

Installing shoutcast:

 

Lets grab shoutcast from nullsoft:

wget [url="http://www.shoutcast.com/downloads/sc1-9-2/shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6.tar.gz"]http://www.shoutcast.com/downloads/s...-glibc6.tar.gz[/url]

Lets extract shoutcast:

                               tar -zxvf shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6.tar.gz

tidy up the directory:

                              rm -rf shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6.tar.gz
mv shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6 shoutcast
cd shoutcast

configure shoutcast?

 

your going to want to edit the shoutcast configuration.

                              pico sc_serv.conf 
or
nano sc_serv.conf
depending on what you have.

Ok lets set some important configureation options. Change these settings in the file:

 

MaxUser

Password

PortBase

 

uncomment AdminPassword and set an admin password.

 

Now at this point you can go threw the settings and change them to what you want or you can save and start shoutcast and it will work perfectly.

 

to save crtl+x

 

starting shoutcast?

 

./sc_serv sc_serv.conf

or You can ask DirtySouthRadio to contribute :)

he has already 135.000 + tracks in rotation (Y)

 

Indeed MrGi .. make it yourself easy and pay what is needed to the royalties .. staying honest, also in the making of internetradio, is still the best way to do your broadcasting even your shoutcast stream has a small amount of slots

 

Good luck with your project and Happy Holidays !

ps : please share your website or http: listen link with fellow BW members .. or add it to the BW station directory

 

Either buy cd's and stream illegally. or pay royalties and buy CD's and stream legally ;)

Visit and listen @ BW !

I agree .. and I think We all did

I discovered all of the answers on my own mistake after mistake

even I'm into radio since 1978

 

The following is a quote of a friend of mine, he is an IT specialist, knows everything about pc's, owns his own datacenter and his first steps into the digital world he made at the beginning aka birth of the first "modern" pc's .. at that time everything had to be written into the DOS language etc etc ...

Well these days .. he is even saying to Me .. "thats something that I didn't knew untill now"

it explains that the digital world of streaming is a world apart of what is known as the IT world

So as starter to a project all have to agree that making mistakes is part of the job :)

 

Maybe other members know similar occasions who happend during their experiences

HAPPY HOLIDAYS and MERRY XMas 2 U ALL ! (Y)

Visit and listen @ BW !
