Talk about doing my head in ... I've got 'Playit Live' sorted. Our stations
shows are on there waiting .. I've linked my stream from my 'Playit Live'
(Similar to Rivendell) account to Icecast and they report back '*on air*' -
but WHERE ????!!!!!, How the heck can people listen to what I'm sending to
Icecast? what is the URL that people need to visit to listen to our radio
station? ..
I've kicked the cat, Sulked for hours on end and even begged Icecast for
help, my wife has threatened to take the car and kids .. all to no
avail...😁😉😁😉 The only conclusion left is, I'm a total dummy or Icecast
like to make things as difficult as possible.
Before I finally give up and throw the whole thing out of the window. As
we're four floors up that might be dangerous for someone walking below ..
