Description

  • There's a free method that allows you to host a Webradio your PC using Winamp and Shoutcast.
  • The quality and number of listeners will depends on your connection.

  • A dedicated Shoutcast web page (http. .. IP + Port) will be available to administer and obtain information.

Implementation of the V1


Here are the elements needed for our Web radio:
  • Winamp
  • A server console
  • DSP Plugin

Download V1


We'll have to download three programs:

Installing the V1

  • Install Winamp
  • Install the DSP Plugin. Go to Winamp Preferences > Effect/DSP > "Nullsoft Shoutcast source DSP."
  • Install the ShoutCast server console "sc_serv"

Configure the V1

  • Open the Shoutcast folder (on Windows Seven 64-bit):
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\SHOUTcast
  • Open sc_serv.ini, using Notepad or Notepad ++
  • Edit the following settings:

MaxUser=10
Password=Your_custom_password
  • Test your port, it must be open (firewall and router).
  • PortBase = Your port (8000 by default)
    • In this example the port: 51601 is being used
  • To activated this IP relay settings, remove the ";"
    • RelayServer = xx.xx.xxx.xxx

Configure DSP Plugin:

  • Open Winamp > DSP plugin.
  • Configure the port based on the modifications made to the "sc_serv.ini" file.
  • Check "Use legacy SHOUTcast V1 Protocol".
  • In the Yellowpages tab check if this is not already the case, "Make this server public (Recommended)" and the "Track Title" box if you want Winamp manages names sent to the server.
  • In the Encoder tab choose "MP3 Encoder" and select 128kbps, 44.100kHz, Stereo.
  • For the Input tab, leave the settings on Recommended.
  • If you do not have a static IP, you can use No IP for dynamic DNS and URL redirection.

Using the V1

  • Winamp must be open and the DSP plugin connected.
  • Start the server console:

  • In your browser type http:// IP:port and then you can access the information page of your radio.

  • Click "listen" from another PC or Locally.
  • The server console should show a connection (bottom right of the server console there is the number of people connected to your WebRadio.)
  • Go and find your Shoutcast radio, it will be displayed after a certain period of time (10 to 20 minutes.)

Implementation of the V2


As for the old version we need the same programs, but this time all are available on the official website.
  • Winamp
  • The server console
  • The Shoutcast DSP Plugin

Download the V2


Installing the V2

  • Install Winamp
  • Install the DSP Plugin. Go to Winamp Preferences > Effect/DSP > "Nullsoft Shoutcast source DSP."
  • Install the ShoutCast server console "DNAS v2 server"

Configure the V2

  • Open the ShoutCast folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\SHOUTcast
