How do I setup an Icecast server for broadcasting audio in my network?

1

Broadcasting the output of the soundcard as an internet radio stream is a reliable way to stream audio in a network. This can nicely be used to e.g. transmit audio in a wireless LAN to another computer or any other device capable of playing internet radio streams.

However I did not find an easy step by step guide on how to set this up.

2. Edit Icecast2 configuration

Open the file /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml as root in an editor. For security reasons you should setup passwords in the section:

admin hackme

If you changed the or you need to do so on the source or relay side as well. That means leave it default or change it in the ices2.xml file (see below) as well. The same will need to be done in the Ices or Darkice configuration files.

You also need to define the hostname where your stream can be reached:

localhost

Leave it as localhost (no need to give a resolved IP there) when you only want to stream in your local network. The default port...

3. Edit defaults

Open the /etc/default/icecast2 file as root in an editor. The last line needs to be changed to

ENABLE=true

That's all for Icecast2. Of course there are many more settings you can play with. In the configurations files there are explanatory notes on...

So you want to make your own Icecast server on your un-managed VDS? Well we can help! Before we start I will mention that this will NOT be an in depth guide on how to use SAM broadcaster. This is a fairly bare bones tutorial on how to get you up and running quickly.

The first thing you will want to do is download the Icecast server client from http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/icecast/

Once Icecast server installed we will need to edit our config.

The main setting we care about here is the servers password. The default port should be fine unless you are running multiple instances.

Now that we have Icecast setup how we want we can install SAM broadcaster. During the install process you will be asked to install a database. I am going to use...

Icecast? Don’t worry, I am not going to talk about chiselling sculptures out of ice here. Icecast is a server—an audio streaming server to be precise. It can broadcast both MP3 and Ogg Vorbis format audio in the form of streams. What I wanted was to be able to access my music library on my iPod Touch while at home. So, I was looking for a way to stream my music over the home network. After a little search and review, MPD (Music Player Daemon) with the Icecast server seemed to be the best option.

With this set-up, you can run even your own Internet radio. You can select the bit rate of the stream, the number of channels to stream, and the quality of the Ogg streams…there are numerous options to choose from.

My own radio? Wow! Where do I begin?

It’s fairly simple actually. We will cover the basics about creating and using a basic MPD set-up, which can be used as a local streaming service on your machine. Personally, I find it better than most players out there....

The DEX 3.4 DJ and VJ software pre-release hit the streets a few days ago and introduced a few new features including internet radio broadcasting support with Icecast.

What is Icecast? From the company website:

Icecast is a streaming media server which currently supports Ogg (Vorbis and Theora), Opus, WebM and MP3 audio streams. It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily and supports open standards for communication and interaction.

Direct Icecast integration in DEX 3 means creating an internet radio station and broadcasting your mixes is a cinch.

There are quite a few internet radio platforms you can use to broadcast a radio mix show from including Radionomy (free, and you can make money by gaining listeners and running ads — we’ll touch more on this in a later blog post), Mixify (free and paid) and Shoutcheap (paid).
