On my player, of course i am shown the artist/track info, which is currently playing, from radioboss.
When I am doing a live show (a live interview) how can I show something like 'My Radio Station - The groovy talk show'? And/or is there a way to show default info, whenever I have the 'mic'...
Well, yeah; no, I wouldnt do that. However, I have much of my music already in flac (cd->flac). It is more a question of space on my auto dj account.
So, flac->mp3 isnt really 're-encoding' or I guess it's not re-encoding lossy. If I upload mp3s, there would be 2 lossy encodes...
In the autodj settings, you have to set up your encoder, format, bitrate, etc. Does this mean that it re-encodes mp3s? In other words, it doesnt just stream the mp3, as is? Can I upload .flac files, to prevent that?
I tried my two test players ^ on my other computer (win vista, same hardwired network) and got the same thing, stuttery icecast. However, on my phone, with cell data (not wifi) they work the same.
So, now i'm thinking my network either doesnt like icecast or doesnt like that particular...
After a bit of goofing around... now http://s2.radioboss.fm:8294/stream wont play, gives me "The file you requested could not be found"
--update, now that link works. It's hard to pin down. I will say Chrome works better than FF. (latest of each)
However, I put:
I understand that the stream quality is the same.
There seems to be two parts to icecast, user name or port number. Any of the streams, which use the user name work fine. The ones with port# 8294 do not.

I switched to icecast... is it me or is icecast buggy? my stream is all laggy, cant get to some of the server pages like http://s2.radioboss.fm:8294/ Not much is different, on my end, from using the shoutcast server and it was smooth, never a hiccup.
Oh, I have the shoutcast server. You choose one or the other, at sign up time, right?
I've read a little about icecast vs shoutcast. Seems like, for publicity, Shoutcast is the way to go. But, I'm starting a fairly niche station, so maybe i dont care about that as much.
Is it possible to...
Ok, then to add my brother to this list:
/stream is the mount where listeners will connect, set fallback to /brother
/brother - fallback to /home
/home - fallback to /office
/office - for your office PC
I think that would let Brother take over, then when he is done, either home (if...
So, lets say I have one computer, playing shuffle, at the office. Then I get home and I want to do a show, from my home laptop.
How can I make the server cut off the office pc, while I'm doing my show, from home? And then give back control to the office computer, to continue shuffling, over...
Playing with Radiologger... It doesnt want to record in flac. Either 48 or 44.1, stereo, when i hit record, there is an error,
"Encoder exited with an error. Please check recording format in settings."
Mp3 recording works.
The reason I might want to use radioLogger is that I want to have the...
