View Full Version : Broadcast on different qualities

23rd November 2006, 14:50
Hi there,

I'm very new to Shoutcast and thereofr have a lot of questions.

Another is this ...
I have noticed that some broadcasters have about three links. One for very good quality, another for good quality and yet another for average quality.
How is this done and how do the links look to the different sound qualities?

The Broadcasters who have different qualities of streams all have 2 or more servers setup while the Source plugin is using different outputs with different bitrates each set to go onto a specific server

good luck
