Broadcasting live DJ style

Postby netgooroo on Sun Jul 06, 2014 11:04 am

This is a topic that I explored when I was still using Ubuntu main distro and was not able to find any solutions.

I was hoping that since #Mint is a multimedia focused distro, there is some kind of option for me to broadcast live streaming music as well as being a DJ non shoutcast style. Unless there is a way to utilize shoutcast so that it works with Mint.

If there is a way to do this, could someone please point me to the process so I can get up and running?

Thanks.

I've seen that thread already and
#1. it's old... and
#2. I'm looking for something more "user friendly" er.. plug n play type of process.

I can do some stuff on the command line and, and somewhat comfy changing some basic settings but, I still like to "play it safe" and use apps that I understand work out of the box without me having to change any settings. :)

So, anyone else?

I use Icecast as a streaming server along with BUTT to push the stream to the Icecast server. Icecast runs on one of my Pi's and it handles it very well.

Let me know if you need any further help.
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

I tried icecast when I was still using Ubuntu main fork with Internet DJ Console and I could never get a live stream to work. So, any help with setting that up with step by step "how to" would be great.

Also open to using BUTT or any other front end. I was told MIXX could be use to stream as well..

Download BUTT and then contact me via PM and I will provide the settings for my Icecast server for you to do some testing. If this works for you then you can decide to setup your own Icecast server.

Sox(read the man page but tldr you can pipe it!!) can be piped through so you can really have no limits there. Also if you like sequencers or trackers LMMS is fairly easy to use and is a lot of fun. It's like a good Fruity loops.

Hey guys,

Sorry I have not been on in a while. Since I posted this thread, I have installed MIXX and LMMS. MIXX broadcats live. I just need to configure a server to use it. FREE if at all possible.

Again, I appreciate all the input.

Looks like MIXX can use a Icecast server, which i can offer to you for some testing. Please PM me so i can provide my server settings.
