View Full Version : SHOUTcast Interviews?
28th May 2003, 14:07
I currently am running a radio station for a game. Rainbow Six if your wondering. :)
Anyways, I want to be able to have interviews with gamers and popular people involved in the gaming community. I don't really want to do it over the phone because thats just gunna cost a lot of money for the person I'm interviewing cause it'd be a long distance.
I'm considering getting a 1-800 number.. but I dunno.. they might be a little too much :|
So.. my last resort is NetMeeting. Is there anyway to set that up so I can have what I'm hearing through NetMeeting broadcasted?
Lemme know! Thanks.

Sure, if you put your Input in "Soundcard Mode," any sound your computer makes will be broadcasted through the SHOUTcast DSP. I guess this can be good and bad. If you're just running winamp and netmeeting, then it's good. If you're playing the game at the same time, you would get game sounds too (bad, I would think).
Btw, a few people have radio stations for games. How does that work? What does the stream do?

Oh no, Its not DURING a game. Its just a radio station that people can listen to while playing. :]
But if I wanted to play the game and for my listeners to hear the game goin on I think it'd just leave it on Soundcard mode as you stated.
But, I'm sorta curious if the NetMeeting idea would work because whenever I use Soundcard Mode only thing ppl hear is my mic. I know ur suppose to be able to hear the music in the bg, but it doesn't work on mine. I've got the fading 'n shit all right, but still.. it just always cuts off the music and only allows my mic to be on. \=
I always have to go back to winamp mode to let the music be hear. Thats why Im wondering if the NetMeeting idea would work.
Any ideas how to fix that? \=

Make sure your mixers are setup to broadcast the stereo mix and not just the mic:
"Click the Mixer or Open Mixer button and this should open both the Recording Mixer and the Playback Mixer (you will most likely need to move one of them to see the other).
In the Recording Mixer select "What U Hear" / "System Mixer" / "Stereo Mixer" (the name on this varies, it may be one or none of those)
In the Playback Mixer make sure the Microphone is NOT muted.
When you press the "Talk" button in the DSP the Microphone volume in the Playback Mixer should increase and the Wave volume should decrease. When you let go of the button the volumes should return to their previous settings."

Ok lemme ask you this.
When you click on the downtab of Soundcard Input, and NOT clicking talk, should the music still be heard? Cause as soon as I set mine to the 'Soundcard Input' selection its as if I'm holding down the talk button.
Here is a screen shot of everything and how I have it setup when I broadcast: My Playback Mixer, Soundcard Mixer and the shoutcast source. Maybe this will help out.
Btw, I think I've figured out how to get the netmeeting idea to work :)
Haven't tested it yet though.

I'll give it another shot...
What's strange to me, is that in my Recording Control, instead of "mute" under each slider, it says "select," and you have to "select" the input you want, ie, "stereo mix" (what you hear).

Yea, I personally dont know whats up with that either.
It used to say select but that was awhile ago. \=

just curious, what are you using? sound blaster live? that's what i have, i think. from what i understand, i think it has issues with shoutcast.
nonetheless, re-installing your drivers may help. ??
sorry i can't be more help,
