View Full Version : Broadcasting streaming audio from website
24th February 2003, 21:23
I would like to broadcast streaming audio directly from my website. I don't want to go through www.shoutcast.com Is there any Winamp software to do this or do I have to use Windows media player or real

Why don't you want to use shoutcast? It is the best one IMO because many stations use it and many people will have access to it.

I want to be able to provide a link stating "listen" on the website It seems like why should I go through shoutcast. listeners would have to go to shoutcast to connect???

I'm pretty sure you can use links with ShoutCAST to send people to your station. Not sure since I haven't had much experience with it, though.

Hey....thanks for responding. Now that I'm thinking about it.....there should be a way to directly hyperlink to the shoutcast station.......anybody do it before?

This would be better served in one of the SHOUTcast forums :)
DNAS link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport/listen.pls
Replace yourDNASip with the ip of the DNAS (SHOUTcast server) and yourDNASport with the DNAS port (default is 8000)
Also, machines on the same lan as the DNAS (you) need to use the lan ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
Machines not on the same lan as the DNAS (the rest of the world) need to use the real, world-visible ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
See RFC1918 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1918.html) for more information. Scroll down and look for the section titled: 3. Private Address Space
How to find your ip address (Part I). (http://www.whatismyip.com)
How to find your ip address (Part II). (http://www.computerjohn*******misc_tips/how_to_find_ip_address.htm)
Finally, you can get a static name, such as foo.bar.com (not as cool as that, though :)) from http://www.no-ip.com or one of the other myriad of Dynamic DNS Services (http://dmoz.org/Computers/Software/Internet/Servers/Address_Management/Dynamic_DNS_Services/).
Then, your links would be:
DNAS link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport/listen.pls
Once your DNAS (SHOUTcast server) is up, use FreedomAudio (http://www.freedomaudio) to embed your stream.

Festerhead.....YOU DA MAN! Now I'm gonna go back and try to understand that :D Hopefully with that you're saying a user can just click listen on my website and the audio will start
Sorry about posting in the wrong section

Once you get your DNAS up and running, you have sevaral links at your disposal.
For simplicity, let's assume:
1. Your ip is 123.345.567.789
2. You're running your DNAS (SHOUTcast server) on the default portBase (which is 8000)
3. You have no DNAS errors.
A link to your DNAS page would be http://123.345.567.789:8000
A link to directly open your stream would be http://123.345.567.789:8000/listen.pls
Use your favorite editor to include these urls in http href tags or other window opening procedures.
Remember, though, to understand and keep in mind your network configuration. That is (again), machines on the same lan as the DNAS (you) need to use the lan ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
Machines not on the same lan as the DNAS (the rest of the world) need to use the real, world-visible ip of the DNAS to connect/listen. :)
