Live Caller Advice
for those who want to do live caller requests on the air (where the caller is actually heardon the broadcast) via the internet, I stumbled across something earlier tonight. here are the programs I was using:
Winamp 2.9 w/ SAM Encoders DSP
Microsoft Game Voice Share (connected to a friend's connection)
basically, I started gvs first and had it connected. was chatting with my friend for a bit. launched winamp (SAM encoders auto-loaded since i was selected beforehand). I started it broadcasting to my server, playing music. no errors. switched mixer recording to Stereo Mix (or Mixed out) and still no issues.
I heard: my friend , my music playing in Winamp
He Heard: my music , me
now, I dont know if his voice was actually transmitted via shoutcast, but I suppose it was since the recording source was set to include it.
hope this helps some ppl out. apparently SAM encoders is the key in this issue since the regular shoutcast DSP has problems broadcasting while gvs is running.
