View Full Version : Service Providers Please

I need a live mp3 stream provider for my shoutcast relay. Does anyone have a problem with streamguys? And, can anyone recommend any other streaming services?

I used Streamguys (http://www.streamguys.com) for a long time and had little to no problems. Any problems on their end were quickly investigated and solved.
Another is AlinQ (http://www.alinq.net). While their prices may be a little more than Streamguys, I switched due to reasons pertaining to Audiorealm (http://www.audiorealm.com/stream/). The service is quite exceptional. Although being out in the Pacific Ocean can tend to crazy connections, I've experienced less hiccups with AlinQ than Streamguys.
I'm not badmouthing Streamguys. I was very happy with their service and level of customer support.
There was a thread started for listing streaming services...

Look for the section titled...
Server and Shoutcast DNAS Issues -> General -> In need of a server for SHOUTcasting? (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=36909)
Unfortunately, the thread is rife with off topic postings and some postings are rather old. There are some solutions that you might want to look into, though.
Enjoy! Good? Bad? Punt?
