[Icecast] ezstream question

Hi Timothy:


Thanks for the idea.


However the radio station is on a remote vps running the linux Ubuntu 14.04
operating system.


We use to use another automation package prs but it hasn't been updated in
quite some time and it was becoming unstable and I kept having to reboot the
automation to make it follow the server clock because it kept drifting and
shows were not starting on time.


Now I have all of the streams using the ezstream and ices combination along
with Icecast and everything is running much smoother because the prerecorded
shows are being launched from scripts via cron jobs.


I am going to try Geoff's suggestion and also I am going to see how well
mp3gain does with the mp3 files we have on the server.


I'll let everybody know what I decided to go with.


Thanks for all of the suggestions.

Larry, if you have a mac laying around, a solution would be to try Nicecast
from Rogameba. i'm not sure if i'm spelling this correctly but the point to
me making mention of this is to say this, the effects aren't all that
accessible. so, if you were to do that, sighted assistance would be

 just a thought. hope it helps.

Hi all:


I am managing a radio station that has 7 streams.

I am using icecast, ices and ezstream on the streams and overall it is
working pretty well.

One of the streams is an old time radio stream and I use ezstream to run the
prerecorded shows.

The streams are 128K mp3 streams.

Also this station is running on a VPS using Ubuntu 14.04.


My question:

Is there a package or some sort of way I can apply dynamic compression to
the stream?

The old time radio stream plays many different old time radio shows and the
volume is inconsistent.


If you need more information please let me know.
