Thanks for all the input, I experimented further with shoutcast and edcast, and did get things ‘kinda-working’- but there were problems..
Right now I’ve just been using my laptop, and it only has one soundcard.. and I kept running into the problem of seeing the music playing, but not being able to hear anything
But you Zara uses might be interested in what I did do using just my laptop..
By piping Zara Radio outputs through Virtual audio cable into Broadwave Audio Server, I was able to eliminate theshoutcast problem of the distortions that happen when one song fades into another. I did not have this problem with Broadwave, and I was able to hear the output on my laptop.
It seems to work great, and it was so very simple to set up.
I have not however actually set up a website to stream it to yet (my old one is long gone).
I still want to experiment with edcast a bit more, but I’m going to wait until my transmitter actually gets here and I get my other equipment unpacked and set up (it’s been sitting in storage a couple years now). I was trying to get familiar with streaming on the web, so I could simulcast the broadcast when I get it up and going. But I think I was getting ahead of myself – When I set the studio up I’ll have multiple computers to dedicate to the station for both on air and web.
Soon enough I’ll be back in the game..
By the way everyone, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!
