I Cannot Find The Answer....

The server that my websites are on have given me ssh access, and I have 4 Shoutcast folders on the server for audio output. All I want is to set up one of the folders for NSV, but cannot seem to find the answer. Everything leads to live streaming from my computer instead of my server...

I have the sc_serv file, the config file, etc in the shoutcast folders. Do I need anything different for live NSV?

; SHOUTcast Distributed Network Audio Server configuration file

; If you want to manage multiple configurations, just copy
; this file to another name, and run sc_serv with that name
; such as:
; sc_serv.exe sc_leet.conf

; ***************************
; Required stuff
; ***************************

; MaxUser. The maximum number of simultaneous listeners allowed.
; Compute a reasonable value for your available upstream bandwidth (i.e. if
; you have 256kbps upload DSL, and want to broadcast at 24kbps, you would
; choose 256kbps/24kbps=10 maximum listeners.) Setting this value higher
; only wastes RAM and screws up your broadcast when more people connect
; than you can support.
MaxUser=100

; Password. While SHOUTcast never asks a listener for a password, a
; password is required to broadcast through the server, and to perform
; administration via the web interface to this server. This server should
; consist of only letters and numbers, and is the same server your broadcaster
; will need to enter in the SHOUTcast Source Plug-in for Winamp. THIS VALUE
; CANNOT BE BLANK.
Password=*****

; PortBase. This is the IP port number your server will run on. The
; value, and the value + 1 must be available. If you get a fatal error when
; the DNAS is setting up a socket on startup, make sure nothing else on the
; machine is running on the same port (telnet localhost portnumber -- if you
; get connection refused then you're clear to use that port). Ports < 1024
; may require root privledges on *nix machines. The default port is 8000.
PortBase=80**

; ***************************
; Optional Parameters
; ***************************

; ***************************
; Logging configuration
; ***************************

And so on.....

What needs to be done for this to stream live video, maybe with audio??

Thanks

BTW I am great at mimicking. This was set up for me by someone else a while ago. Help will be greatly appreciated.

The server along will not provide you with a stream, as the server just serves a stream. If you want to do a live encoding from some source, like a Webcam, you are going to neeed a Windows box and run the NSVTools. If you have pre-encoded NSV videos there are tools that will allow you stream those from the same box as the server.

Steps to encode/send live video stream to remote shoutcast server

1. Download NSV Tools (http://www.scvi.net/software.htm)

2. Connect your webcam/dv cam to a Windows-based computer (via firewire/usb)

3. From the NSV Tools package, install and configure the software NSVCap (http://www.scvi.net/liveenc.htm)

4. After configuring properly in NSVCap, tell it to start capture (video and audio)

That's it. NSVCap encodes and sends the result to your remote shoutcast server. You can view/hear the result with Winamp at the proper address, i.e.,

your-remote-shoutcast-server-ip-or-domain-name:your-remote-shoutcast-server-port/;stream.nsv

You can also view the result on a webpage if you use an Active X webpage player(http://www.scvi.net/activex.htm). Hope this helps.

PS If you prefer a command line app to accomplish the above, you can use nsvenc from the NSV Tools package instead of NSVCap.

Ok, maybe I didn't clarify. I have all the NSV tools, the encoder, live capture, etc.... Is the config file for my auido streams the same for viedeo streams? I get how to configure the live capture to send it to my website thus server, and what port I want to stream on.... Again, this is greek to me... DO I need to make alterations to the sc_serv file? Do I need a different file than sc_serv?

In other words, I have the tools, I need the proper config files for the shoutcast foler..... Get it now?

You create 1 header txt file.

You can use any port you wish, however the default port is 8000.

You configure sc_conf according to your specific requirements.

You can find more information here :

Server configuration file (sc_conf )

- You must reset the password

- You must set the maximum number of connections allowed

- Optional You can select an alternate port number

Yes.

A lot of people use Winamp for the source program for audio. So, you'd have your Windows box using Winamp with the DNAS plugin, sending audio to the server.

Everythings the same, except you will use NSVCAP to send video instead.
