first question -

do you have a Shoutcast server set up?

if yes, is this on your PC or through a third party hosting company.

if it's on your PC - go to the sc_serv config file in your Shoutcast directory and browse through it (it's a text file) - you'll find your username and broadcast/admin password.

By default they are -

username - admin
password - changeme

if you're using a third party host - you'll need to contact them for a reminder email to be sent out to you.
