Icecast is a server.
Icecast installs at /usr/local/etc/icecast/ this install dir is the default directory.
under FreeBSD4.7 is located at /usr/local/etc/icecast.
Icecast will stream-serve from its default 'staticdir'(ectory) location you specified in
/usr/local/etc/icecast/icecast.conf. just dump the mp3's in the
'staticdir' location .... working? let me know!
Do you have 'Shout' installed? Shout is a streamer. it streams data
(mp3's for example) to the server Icecast.
in shout's ini file at /usr/local/etc/icecast/shout.conf there is an
entrt 'mount'. mount points to a dir name that *you* create under
icecast roots install dir.
#vi shout.conf and change 'mount default' to 'mount myMount#1' and
copy your mp3's to myMount#1
1/ start icecast at tty2. load OK?
2/ altF2 and login on tty3
3/ at tty3 do this shoutcast -? ... look for the -d option
4/ #shout -d /path/to/shoutcast.conf
5/ it's streaming ... look at tty3 and see titles and "dot" markers
6/ winAmp http://x.y.z.w:8000/myMount#1 .... working ok ????
7/ AltF2 and login to tty4
Put other mp3's in myMount#2
copy shoutcast.conf to shoutcast2.conf
edit shoutcast2.conf and change line
'mount myMount2#1' to
8/ at tty4
#shout -d /path/to/shoutcast2.conf
streaming ok ?
9/ at winamp http:/x.y.z.w:8000/myMount#2
<p>10/ Let me know how it goes .... email rather than list please :-)
