General Questions from an Experienced Newb

Hi! I'm currently using a hosting provider to stream my station. I have been using Securenet Systems for a little over two years. I'm looking at other options.

I have a few questions for those who are familiar with Shoutcast. I do not want the Enterprise level of Shoutcast, and these questions apply to both the "we host" and "shoutcast hosts".

1. Our station is fully licensed with SoundExchange and all the others. Is there any way to get song/performance reports through this system or is there a third party tool?

2. How do our listeners connect to the stream? Is it a simple link, something we can embed, or do they need to download a third-party program to listen?

3. Right now our encoder is on the same PC as our radio automation software (Simian). Will this work with Shoutcast or do we need a different computer?

Thanks for all your help.
