How do I: Setup SimpleCast to connect to SHOUTcast Server

You have set up a streaming server the next step is to create an encoder that can supply the streaming server with a source stream.

 

·        Click on Encoders button in SimpleCast

·        In the Encoders window click on the ‘+’ button (add encoder)

 

·        Select MP3 and mp3PRO and Click OK
Note: You may use the legacy ACM MP3 encoder but it is not recommended.  Configurations below for MP3 and mp3PRO encoder apply.

·        MP3 (PRO) Encoder & Streamer Configuration

 

o       On the Converter tab

 

§         Set Quality to Medium

 

§         Under Format select the format that you would like to use.

§         Check Auto Start encoder after 5 Seconds

§  Uncheck ‘Allow scripts in stream’.
Note: This will cause problems with stream.

o       Server Details tab

 

§         Server type is SHOUTcast

 

§         Server Details

·        Enter Host in Server IP field (Server Hostname like doc.mediaserv1.com)

 

·        Enter Port in Server Port field (Check your welcome email for port #)

 

·        Enter password in password field (Check your welcome email for your DJpassword)

 

§         Station Details

 

·        Type in your Station Name

 

·        Select the genre from the drop-down box or type in your own
Note: you may type in more than one genre comma separated.

 

·        Type in your website URL

 

·        Enter AIM ID (optional)

 

·        Enter ICQ # (optional)

 

·        Enter IRC Channel (optional)

 

·        Check ‘List on public station listing (recommended)
Note: this will list your station at
SHOUTcast.com

 

·        Check ‘Enable title streaming’ and be sure that $combine$ is in the field below ‘Enable title streaming’ to display titles.

 

o       Click OK

 

o       Your Encoder should now say ‘encoded (#) and streamed (#).

 

Setup SHOUTcast Statistic Relay

The final step is to create a Statistics relay for the streaming server.

 

A statistic relay simply grabs the current status and viewer count from each server, reporting the details to SAM. Without a statistic relay, SAM will not know where listeners can connect to listen to your music and it will also not accurately report the count of listeners connected to your stream.

 

·        Click on Statistics button in main window of SimpleCast

·        In the Statistic Relays window click on the ‘+’ button (add new relay)

 

·        Select SHOUTcast Statistic Relay, click OK

 

·        Enter SHOUTcast server details.

 

o       Enter Host in Host field

 

o       Enter Port in port field

 

o       Enter password in password field

 

·        Click OK

 

·        Statistic Relay should now say ‘Active (OK)’
