Create your WebRadio


  • 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.
  • You will benefit from appearing in the search result of the Shoutcast Internet radio search engine.
  • A dedicated Shoutcast web page (http. .. IP + Port) will be available to administer and obtain information.
  • The titles of the songs and mix appear through Winamp thanks to the TAGinfo of your tracks.

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

We'll have to download three programs:
  • Winamp.
  • Shoutcast Plugin DSP.
  • Warning the server console has two versions, one older version is no longer available for download.
  • Install Winamp
  • Install the DSP Plugin. Go to Winamp Preferences > Effect/DSP > "Nullsoft Shoutcast source DSP."
  • Install the ShoutCast server console "sc_serv"
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.)

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
  • Install Winamp
  • Install the DSP Plugin. Go to Winamp Preferences > Effect/DSP > "Nullsoft Shoutcast source DSP."
  • Install the ShoutCast server console "DNAS v2 server"
  • Open the ShoutCast folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\SHOUTcast
  • Edit the "sc_serv_basic.conf" file with Notepad++
    • portbase=51601, password=custom_password, adminpassword=admin_password
  • Winamp must be open and the DSP plugin connected
  • Start the server console by clicking the "sc_serv.exe" file.

  • In your browser type " http:// IP:port " and there you can access the information page of your radio (example http://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:port/).
  • Then http://IP:port/ to administer the radio, you need the name and password defined in the config page.
  • Click "listen" to listen.
  • You can set the visibility of your radio as public (listed in the ShoutCast search engine results).
  • The server console should display the active connections.
  • If you have any connections problem, it is probably due to the firewall or router settings.

  • Then configure it to 128kbps 10 users.

  • Click "Start"
