Decided to Stop Lurking and Post a Question Non '-cast' Streaming


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Been lurking around here off and on for over a year and figured it's time to come out of the shadows (creepy I know). My fiance and I used to do radio via Blog Talk Radio but knew that at some point we would want to be more independent.


However, in that independence (from what I can see) we will have to depend on some type of '-cast' hosting (Shoutcast, Icecast whatever).


I have Direttore Pro which I like but in order to stream it needs Winamp running in the background (which I don't like). I also have Broadwave (paid) and an Alesis mixer to be able to use Skype (just so you know what I have on hand that might be of use).


So, say I wanted to use a Go Daddy streaming sever (not really just as an example), what would be my options for automation and streaming that did not involve Shoutcast, Outcast or any other -cast? Even if I have to use Winamp would I have any other options to get my stream to the net?


I have also tried SAM, which I like but it is not going to be in the budget anytime soon.


Thanks in advance and I have really enjoyed the forum thus far. Hope that at some point I have something valuable to add.

Shoutcast and ice cast do have standalone software which means you don't need winamp, edcast and altacast are examples of these. Or if you want to use a windows media server you could use windows media encoder to stream to it. For my play out I use Radio DJ version 1.5.8 which supports the shoutcast DSP plugin which is basically the win amp plugin but instead of using Winamp it uses radio DJ

I love shameless plugs, been guilty of a few myself LOL. So I am still exploring possibilities. The server that I am looking at using has a Linux OS so does that mean I am limited to using Icecast?


Shoutcast runs on Linux just fine. we use version 1.9.8 haven't been able to figure out V2 yet it's so darn complicated.
