Broadcast A Live Show On Open-Stage Project
We thought it might be cool to create a channel where members can run their own shows.
If your music software encoder connects to a Shoutcast server, you can stream live music.
Broadcasters can submit live events, and manage them from events dashboard.
Our Shoutcast Guides will teach you how to configure your music software encoder and broadcast a live audio stream to our Shoutcast server. Once you have completed the encoder configuration and connected to the shoutcast server, check your live stream by visiting the Open-Stage radio page.
First you will need to contact us and have the Broadcaster role added to your user account.
Once you become a broadcaster, we'll send you the info you'll need to connect your encoder.
Here's a list of some popular music programs that can connect to a Shoutcast Version 1 or 2 stream:
Some of these programs have paid versions, like Sam and VirtualDJ, the others are free but well worth checking out.
If you only need an encoder to listen to your sound card, (external equipment) nicecast, edcast or Winamp will work.
When a live show starts, the Auto-DJ will fade out, if the Auto-DJ detects no live stream it will fade back in.
Each broadcaster will have their own dj account details, for connecting to our Shoutcast streaming server.
You are free to use the stream whenever you like, if no other dj is connected, check the live events page.
We like to stream old Essential Mixes when there's no live shows.. but we'd much prefer to hear yours!
