[QUESTION REQUESTS] Interview With Icecast Creator, Jack Moffitt


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I have the opportunity to interview Jack Moffitt, the original creator of Icecast. He discontinued his development in 2002-2003 (so here is your chance to ask some questions!).


jack.jpgI'm an entrepreneur and a hacker.


My current project is called Chesspark and is an online community for chess players built on top of technologies like XMPP (aka Jabber), AJAX, and Python.


Previously I created the Icecast Streaming Media Server, spent a lot of time developing and managing the Ogg Vorbis project, and helping create and run the Xiph.org Foundation. All these efforts exist to create a common, royalty free, and open standard for multimedia on the Internet.


I am passionate about Free Software and Open Source, technology, music, and photography.




Post your questions below and i'll forward them on to him and the development team!

When will icecast support the open source google video codec webm :)


you don't mind me answering right?


I'm pretty sure KH Branch has WebM support for a while now.

also the 2.4-beta support WebM and Ogg Opus.


Any thoughts on creating a solid open source alternative to Edcast and Butt?

While Edcast itself is an open source alternative to the shoutcast dsp.

another Open source project named: Mixxx is a decent alternative to SamBroadcaster.
