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
These Shoutcast Guides will explain how to configure your music software encoder and broadcast
a live audio stream to our Shoutcast server. Once you have finished configuring the encoder 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:
Sam, VirtualDJ, RadioDJ, LunarCast, Rocket Broadcaster, Mixxx, Audio Hijack, Edcast, Butt Broadcaster, Winamp + DSP Plugin
Some of these programs have paid versions, like Sam and VirtualDJ, the others are free but well worth checking out.
Only need an encoder to listen to your soundcard? (external equipment) nicecast, edcast or Winamp will do the job.
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 no one else is streaming.
We stream old Essential Mixes when there’s no live shows.. but we’d much prefer to hear your mixes!
