Any solution to let connect to the stream only listeners having login and password?

Recommended Posts



We have several SHOUTcast (public) streams, and we would like to add some streams that would be accessible only to some selected users.

For our streams we currently utilize our own Linux/CentOS server and Centova Cast.


I am writing hoping to get ideas or guidance, perhaps from somebody having the above setup already in place?


I understand that having a list of "allowed" IPs would not work, because of the dynamic IPs rotation, thus probably is not the best solution? Additionally as we have already in place a firewall to serve the public streams (firewall which is allowing connections to all the IPs except the blocked ones) thus putting in place a new rule "blocking all the IPs except the listed ones" wouldn't be feasible.


Probably, but not sure, would be better a personalized login solution (user name and password) or just a common access password to be used by all the authorized users?


I will be very glad to get your help in order to move forward with the above project.


Thank you for reading and participating to this discussion.


Best regards

a simple web player secured with htpasswd that's connected to a not public shoutcast server is probably the easiest way to handle this. the page is then secured by the webserver and if you don't give out the stream information its much harder (not impossible) to see where the source is.


this is how id handle this

If you want it secured so only people with a password have it, just create a website and make it password protected and hand the password out to people you want to have it.
