We thought it might be fun to add a channel where members could run their own shows.
If your music software has an encoder that connects to a Shoutcast server, you can stream.
Each broadcaster gets a dj account and login details for connecting to our streaming server.
Broadcasters can submit live events and manage their live events from the events dashboard
First you’ll need to contact us to have the Broadcaster role added to your members account.
Then you can access the events dashboard where you can create and edit you own live events.
Check the Shoutcast guides below for info on configuring your music software encoder.
Once your encoder is connected, check your live stream on the Open-Stage radio page.
Check this list below for some popular music programs with encoders that connect to a shoutcast server
Sam, VirtualDJ, RadioDJ, LunarCast, Rocket Broadcaster, Mixxx, Audio Hijack, Edcast, Butt, Winamp + DSP Plugin
Quick Guides – Configure your music software encoder and connect to a Shoutcast version 2 streaming server
Some of these programs have paid versions, like Sam and VirtualDJ, the others are free but well worth checking.
If you only need an encoder to listen to your soundcard (external equipment) nicecast, edcast, Winamp will work.
We’re using Automated playlists, when a live broadcaster starts streaming, the Auto-DJ will fade out automatically.
When a live broadcaster stops streaming, Auto-DJ will fade back in, so there’s no dead air between dj changeovers.
You are free to use the stream whenever you like, unless another show is scheduled for that time, check the dj schedule first.
You can pick any free slot from the dj schedule, hover over Open Stage in the top menu and select Open Stage Radio Shows.
