    *********************************************
    Howdy folks
    The Mods have allowed us to have a sticky here for those who have or are thinking of having SHOUTcast or any other Radio broadcasts.

    Just write your Link, the time of sending and also content if possible - this sticky will allways be visible for all to see.
    Try to keep the questions as little as possible so as not to clutter this thread up too much.

    Suggestions for making this even better are of course welcome

    Also, make reservations for local times:
    GMT is the easiest to understand.
    Scandinavia is GMT+1

    Please make your times in respect of GMT

    ***************************************
    Here is a small explanation of what you need and how to go about setting it up:

    First off, SHOUTcast suggest using WinAmp as the player.
    The 2 apps to broadcast you need are:

    shoutcast server 1.9.2 windows.exe
    shoutcast dsp 1.8.2b windows.exe


    Both to be found here: SHOUTcast

    The 2 files are the "Server" and "DJ" ones

    Good documentation can be found here: Documentation

    To setup these two apps:

    * First install both apps and make a shortcut to the desktop for the server part. This makes it easier to fire it up when needed. The DJ app is installed as a plugin for WinAmp.
    * When you have WinAmp open - press ctrl + P to open up the configuration.
    * Click on the "Plugins/DSP effect" tab.
    * Mark the "Nullsoft SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.8.2b" line.
    * This will open up another small window called "SHOUTcast source"

    This is how you configure how to send.

    Click on the "Output" tab
    Open up the "Yellow Pages" tab
    Make sure "Make this public" is marked.
    Fill in your description - mine is UKMan's KLF Radio
    URL = localhost
    Genre - that is what type of stuff are you sending
    AIM - n/a
    ICQ - 0
    IRC - #shoutcast

    Now click on the "Connection" tab
    adress = localhost
    Port - 8000
    Password - (dont touch that for now) its configured via the ini file.
    Encoder - 1

    Now click on the "Encoder" tab
    Make sure MP3 Encoder is chosen
    Set up your bitrate:
    Try first anything from 96 - 128 kbps/44.100kHz Stereo

    This is the bitrate you will be sending - it has nothing to do with the bitrates of your tracks!!

    Now you can close the "Winamp Preferences" window behind. This should leave you with the WinAmp player and the SHOUTcast Source window.

    Make sure your playlist is loaded in WinAmp

    Fire up the server (from the shortcut on your desktop)
    Start playing your playlist.

    Then wait for about 5 minutes untill the SHOUTcast server recieves all your data and starts broadcasting.

    The address for people to link to you is like this:
    Code:
    http://yp.shoutcast.com/directory/?s=your description
    The SHOUTcast server takes about 2 - 5 minutes before your link is visible. so be patient.

    Make sure you are sending data by looking at the "Main" tab on the SHOUTcast Source window.
    Now you can minimize the server window and start enjoying your own broadcast.

    Good luck and if you have any questions, just ask

    Finally - shut down all other apps (SoulSeek/Kazaa and other mind bogglingly system resource hogs) - otherwise your listeners will have to "buffer" your broadcast - and that sux big time

    Peace
    UKMan

    I'm going to delete these posts from time to time, by the way, to keep the topic clean.

    You guys are doing great !!

    I shall be off-line after today (26th may) for about 1 - 2months. Unfortunately, i have pressing private matters to attend to which don't allow me to access my pc from home. Hopefully i will however pop in from time to time from somewhere else just to keep up to date on whats happening. You can send me a PM if needed and i will try to answer any questions i can. However, there are quite a few of you now who have succeeded in broadcasting very successfully, so there should allways be someone else around to answer your questions

    Good luck and well done all who have made this a success

    c ya around

    Peace

    I&#39;m sad to see this &#39;Pinned&#39; topic die.

    It&#39;s not the contents which I hate to see go, but the member who started it.

    I talked to UKMan, and it looks like he will not be joining us here at the forum again.

    He always had nice, helpful things to contribute, and it&#39;s a shame so many of the n00bies will never get the chance to know him.

    Peace, and enjoy the sunshine, UKMan.
