  • How to install shoutcast / online internet radio

    What is shoutcast?

    SHOUTcast is Nullsoft's Free Winamp-based distributed streaming audio system. Thousands of broadcasters around the world are waiting for you to tune in and listen.

    How do we install shoutcast?

    Generally you dont want to run shoutcast as root as that can be really bad. so we create a shoutcast user:

    1.) Login to root
    2.) adduser shoutcast
    3.) passwd shoutcast

    Now it will ask for a new password set this and remember it.

    Now login as the new shoutcast user.


    Installing shoutcast:

    Lets grab shoutcast from nullsoft:

    Code:
    wget ftp://ftp.skynet.be/mirror1/tucows.skynet.be/linux/files/shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6.tar.gz
    Lets extract shoutcast:

    Code:
    tar -zxvf shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6.tar.gz
    Lets tidy up the directory:

    Code:
    rm -rf shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6.tar.gz
    mv shoutcast-1-9-2-linux-glibc6 shoutcast
    cd shoutcast

    How to configure shoutcast?

    your going to want to edit the shoutcast configuration.

    pico sc_serv.conf
    or
    nano sc_serv.conf

    depending on what you have.

    Ok lets set some important configuration options. Change these settings in the file:

    MaxUser
    Password
    PortBase

    uncomment AdminPassword and set an admin password.

    Now at this point you can go threw the settings and change them to what you want or you can save and start shoutcast and it will work perfectly.

    to save crtl+x

    How do i start shoutcast?

    ./sc_serv sc_serv.conf


    Enjoy

        its working 100% i am using it but make sure your csf etc not blocked port such as 8000 or 8001 as you set in sc_serv.conf file and make sure password is correct and sorry for question but have you installed winamp + dsp plugin and setup correctly ? and run songs in winamp media player in your pc or laptop ? also your enter your server ip and port and password ?
        you should get able to get http://yourserverip:8000/listen.pls or chnage port as you allowed
        also be noted in winamp dsp plugin encoder should be mp3 format

        let me know if you still facing any issue

                it simply means the resource cannot be accessed this happens on opera a lot when nobody is streaming also you might note when you open for example port 8000 you still cant stream you need to open port 8001 aswell
