[Icecast] How to fire up Icecast?

Thank you, Johan.


I clicked on the bat file – and up came a nice screen saying something like “load http://localhost:8000 into your browser”.  😊  (Sorry for not being precise – my email is on a different computer to the dedicated one for Roon, on a different floor of the house.)


So I did just that – and got a nice screen which said “Icecast2 Status”.


So what do I need to do next?


Note: also on the first screen (which said “load http://localhost:8000 into your browser”), were some error messages – such as: ”hostname not configured – using default”.


Do I have to resolve these errors before Icecast will start working?

Just start the windows batch file (icecast.bat)

Hi there,


I have downloaded Icecast – see here:



I don’t seem to have a “.exe” file which I can click on to fire up Icecast?


Can anyone tell me what I need to do, to get Icecast working?



Thank you,
