Question from a returning newbie

I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times. I apologize in advance.

Years ago, I made my PC a server and broadcast music publicly as an Internet Radio Station. It was just for fun really...to see if I could do it.

I'm trying to do the same now. I have a Windows 7 PC (desktop) that isn't doing much...still works well though.

I've read and read and read. Conceptually, I understand how I need to set up WinAmp, the Shoutcast plugin and the Shoutcast server. However, I can't get it to work. I'm not sure what elementary piece I'm missing. On one hand, I install the plugin and there is this weird red lettering or cross out on some of the menu tabs. And it doesn't look the same as in the tutorial diagram. Then I download it again, and it's fine. But I can't get it to work.

Thing is, I don't know where the issue is. I'm not understanding something fundamental. I have a Shoutcast account (free). I have all the pieces.

The server just won't start...or connect...or something. Not sure if someone has a definitive tutorial, step by step, that I can use. But I could sure use the help.

I appreciate all advice and information.

Cheers

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks

Google wacup. Register at their forum and ask their developer, DrO, your question.

There are better ways than Winamp to get your radio station on air....


Wacup isn't the complete solution some people think it is.... #JustSaying

I don’t use wacup, but DrO is the best authority I know for him to get his questions answered.
