Brutish Sailor Posted April 27, 2012 Share Posted April 27, 2012 Another way of streaming setup for those interested. Configuration: All control for broadcast through a mixer, and easy to take skype calls on the air. Player: Winamp Broadcast Prog: Jar cooked version of Edcast for winamp http://code.google.com/p/edcast-reborn/ Price range: Maybe too expensive for your blood depending on what you got laying around. Maybe really cheap as well. Materials needed 1) Run two soundcards (one with a line in another with line out, another with a line in) in a decent comp 2) Get the latest Jaramondo cooked version of Edcast (I use winamp) http://code.google.com/p/edcast-reborn/ 3) Get a mixer: 2 channels not including Mic required (xynex 802 is perfect) 4) Run two comps side by side. iF THE SECOND COMP WILL RUN SKYPE IT WILL WORK. NO BIG BUCKS HERE. 5) Crappy mic 6) 3 of 1.5 mm jacks (your soundcards input/output size) to stereo 3.5 (your mixers size) cords. The setup should be like this: COMP 1: Winamp and EDCAST with two soundcards (or good onboard and plugged in soundcard) and WIN 7 Comp 2: Skype with cheap plug mic. NOTE 1: DO NOT USE WHAT U HEAR. IT WAS NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE IN THIS TUTORIAL. GET IT OUT OF YOUR HEAD. Step 1: Plug in the cheap mic to Comp 2. Attach it to your mic you talk on when you broadcast live. Step 2: Put your broadcast mic into "mic 1" jack on mixer. Step 3: Run your main out L and R channel on your mixer to one of the two sound cards on COMP 1 via cord mentioned in Materials needed 6. This cord should go to this sound cards line in. Step 4: The OTHER Sound card in comp 1 should have a 3.5 line out running to L and R of the next channel on the mixer. (Another cord mentioned in materials needed 6) NOTE 2: PUT STICKER on This mixer channel that says "Music" recommended. Step 5: On the next mixer channel, run the L and R connection to the line out of Comp 2's soundcard. (Use another cord mentioned in Materials needed 6) NOTE 3: PUT STICKER on this channel that says "skype" recommended Step 6: ON COMP 1, Run Winamp and Jar cooked edcast. Step 7: Shut off your speakers. stop using them for broadcast comp. OR hook them up to your line out HEADSET JACK on mixer WITH ADAPTER. FROM NOW ON, ALL YOUR AUDIO GETS CONTROLLED FROM THE MIXER. STEP 8: SELECT EDCAST TO LISTEN IN on the name of whatever the soundcard with the line in is. ( the one mentioned in step 3) PERFECTO. YOU NOW HAVE THE ABILITY TO TALK AND FADE THEM IN AND OUT. ON THE AIR. YOU NOW HAVE THE ABILITY TO MANUALLY ADJUST AUDIO LEVELS. ALSO USE COMP 2 FOR YOUR MUSIC DROPS. RECOMMEND INSTALLING MICHEL JINGLE MAKER ON THIS ONE. Too easy.
