View Full Version : Question about Shoutcast
12th October 2001, 17:07
I am new to all of this still so please bear with me on this. I am wanting to use shoutcast to stream a talk radio type show. Is it possible to stream live phone calls through shoutcast? I know you can stream your mic through it but is there anyone that has streamed the output of a phone with it? I realize this is probably crazy but if you could just give me a little insight on the thought I would appreciate it.

Visit your local electronic/appliance store and ask if they have any phones with audio output. I have a Bell Canada business phone that has RCA out/inputs on it. There are plenty of other phones too with them.
So basically simpley buy a phone like that, and plug it's output directly into your soundcard, then run a mic into the input. This way your mic volume and the callers volume will be the same, and allow a perfect streaming conversation.
Then obviously use your soundcard as the input device into your stream application.
