Please, enable the „legacy mode“. We are still running SHOUTcasts version 1.9.8 (v1)
Please, switch to your backup server in case of emergency.
PS: To switch to your backup server system simply change the server’s address. Same port. Same password.
L$ 1 / 24h –> PORT 60054
Give our in game server room a visit, please:
L$ 1 / 24h –> PORT 60030
Give our in game server room a visit, please:
Please, give our in game server room a visit and book your server directly.
If you paid for your server on the marketplace already simply drop us a line in game! Thank you.
We have had an outage in the US. All should be back up to normal operations.
Backup systems were not affected.
PS: Simply switch to your backup server in such a case: replace your server’s address with your backup-server’s address to switch – same password, same port.
Please, switch to your backup server system.
us.slstreaming.com should be back online soon.
Sorry for that.
Is SHOUTcast compatible with SAM Broadcaster?
Yes, SHOUTcast Servers are fully compatible with SAM.
All status-reports are available here: http://slstreaming.com?cat=8
Use your DSP’s „legacy mode“ (for SHOUTcast version 1.9.8 and not the new ver. 2), please. So it should not ask for your username when you setup your DSP.
Check out the screenshot here, please.
The shopping-bag’s status-monitor-histories report some false alarms but there were no outages.
UPDATE: Looks like there were some problems with those default DNS servers which are used by the monitor system. I gave it some more DNS server to fall-back to in such cases. Hope that will fix it.
Expecting fluctuating latency and short network interruptions: de.slstreaming.com
25. and/or 26. May 2011 between 0:30h und 6:00h CEST = UTC+2
(2:30h pm – 8:00h pm PST / SL-Time)
All looks very good now.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Normal operations resumed.
Feel free to switch back to your main server (if you do not have any audience).
Huds and shopping-bag-webpages are back.
Going to restart usa.slstreaming.com within the next minutes!
This server does not work the way it should do. We will provide a fix and a more stable server soon!!! Please, feel free to use your backup server.
us.slstreaming.de is also available via us.SLStreaming.com
jas.slstreaming.de is available via de.slstreaming.com
slstreaming.de is available via de2.slstreaming.com
And you can give our blog a visit via http://slstreaming.com
Regards, your ingame support by slstreaming.de\nZuhan Tomcat
SLStreaming offers the current stable SHOUTcast-server-version which is 1.9.8 and not the new beta.
So if you want to use the current winamp-plugin by shoutcast you have to enable the „legacy“ mode. So it should not ask for a username.
And yes, if you was unable to use your server you would get a refund!
Ingame support is back and available. Also visit your online-shopping-bag-webpage (touch your ingame-shopping-bag) for support via email.
SLS is available on the marketplace here:
Joozz! Thank you for your music.
I realy appreciate your chords. Keep playing the piano!
Joozz‘ streaming server is proudly sponsored by slstreaming.de
This is because of your limited upload bandwidth.
So do not up- or download files while you are on the air.
Also try to lower your bitrate!
If you use wireless LAN also try a different channel as your neighbor may use the same channel: try to use channel 1, 6 or 12(us) or 13 (EU). If that does not help you should switch to ethernet.

Since there are various versions of Traktor, and people aren’t always sure, buy a stream of the right size for a day or so, rather than spend the money for a whole month when you might have trouble using it (or have any doubts). Look for SLStreaming.com in search and teleport. You have to find next available Icecast server, not Shoutcast, because Traktor streams Ogg Vorbis only.
See Shoutcast tutorials for similar purchase and setups. Now there are just a few specific things for Traktor beyond making sure you have an Icecast stream from SLStreaming.com
The stream URL from the SLStreaming.com web page works fine in SL for the parcel’s music URL and some radios, for example, http://de.slstreaming.com:8001/lemonodo.ogg
The configuration remains active at each program startup unless changes are needed because a server goes down. Usually if the main server is down, the backup server is available to configure in this same way with no difference to the stream.
If you’re streaming from home, most likely you have a direct connection, so check that box. Your local tech support will instruct you on proxy server if needed. The only real change you’d make is to go from the backup to the main server shown in local chat when you wear and touch your shopping bag. It looks something like: main server: de.slstreaming.com
Do not enter that, because Traktor does not go to DNS (look up and resolve domain names). You need the static IP address from your web page. There you will find a table of IP addresses, similar to below, and also the correct numerical IP address appears on your web page:
Main server: de.slstreaming.com
de.slstreaming.com has address 220.127.116.11
Backup server: backup.slstreaming.com
backup.slstreaming.com has address 18.104.22.168
Therefore, instead of de.slstreaming.com at address, enter the static IP as follows:
Your port number, for example:
For mountpoint, enter any name you choose followed by „.ogg“
Enter the password as shown when you touch your shopping bag. If your password has nine numbers, nine stars should appear:
For format, select „Ogg Vorbis, 44100 Hz, 128 kBit/s“
Metadata settings can be as you wish. They won’t prevent you from streaming.
Now let’s get you streaming. We’ll start with another picture:
The critical part is what’s going on in the upper right corner. Make sure you’re looking at Recorder, not effects (Fx). Press the gray button with the transmitter tower icon on it. It should turn light blue and stay stable, not blink at all, to indicate a successful connection.
That’s really all there is to it. You’re streaming. All you have to do is play music and maybe monitor on a client such as SL, foobar or iTunes. Lemonodo has developed a unique setup for Traktor to use the mic and take advantage of dual soundcards (essential for cueing). But that is beyond the scope of this tutorial, since no two setups will be alike. The one thing we can add to basic music setup is recording.
Basically, give your file a path (directory) a prefix, for example, lemondo (anything will do). Press „…“ to get a GUI to find the path. You’ll need to make a decision on the file split. I’ve chosen the max, but I try to start and stop recording at one hour intervals so I can burn the wav to CD. That’s what you get when you record your stream check, a wav file, which runs large, about 600 mb per hour.
Once you have this set, go ahead and hit the record button just before you are going to perform. It turns orange. This screencap shows connection and record-to-file both working. You’ll be hearing server side on your speakers at Traktor workstation, so preferably on another machine, monitor the client. You can do this by simply logging into SL and turning on the stream, assuming the About Land -> Media -> audio URL is set to parcel music URL, for example: http://22.214.171.124:8001/lemonodo.ogg
Or you can listen in on iTunes or Foobar 2000.
Lastly, you can see your stream at web address, for example: http://126.96.36.199:8001/ (no mountpoint needed). Hopefully everything works as intended and you feel confident in purchasing by the month from SLStreaming.com for a long time. Call for in-game support if there are any questions or concerns.
If you hold a server by SLStreaming.de you can click on ‚geoIP‘ beside your server’s ’status report‘ and its ‚history‘. (Monitors last 30 days.)
There are two ways to generate stats.
(1) Wear your SLStreaming.de-HUD while you are on the air. (FREE/INCLUDED)
(2) You can generate data (at least every two minutes) for your server’s statistics 24 hours a day: universal in-game SHOUTcast connector to monitor your server 24hours a day. This SHOUTcast connector can be used with any SHOUTcast server. So you do not have to use streaming servers by SLStreaming.de.
See the SAM How-To for useful information on purchasing your SLStreaming.com Shoutcast stream. Before you start the stream, you need to set the encoder. Go to the Record section, Broadcast tab, Config…
A window opens. Simply copy and paste all of the numbers from the SLStreaming.com web page into the required fields. This shows a music only setup (MASTER radio button), Shoutcast selected, no change at default location of the encoder, 128 kbps, „Broadcast to a radio server,“ server IP address, port number, any name you want to give your stream such as your DJ name, your password (number of stars is equal to the number of characters in the password) and genre („Various“ if many). Click OK, and your encoder is set for streaming.
Click „Start Recording.“ Connection confirmation appears.
Play track. Here, the graphic shows we’ve ended play of a track on the left and started another on the right in a perfect VDJ style mix.
This is what your Shoutcast server looks like in the browser while the stream is under way. Simply enter the parcel music URL into the browser address bar to reach this page.
Another tab gives you your song history.
To get to admin page, select the tab then enter user „admin“ and your password, same as encoder.
Here you can see the log, do a kick in case a shared user failed to close connection (upstreaming connection) and other neat tricks.
Hit the „Stop Recording“ button and it gives you statistics.
Update, April 2011
Wear shopping bag and touch it. Web page address (keep confidential) appears in chat history, local chat and the blue menu, where you can go to the page in the in-game browser.
Server URL, port and password appear.
The config dialog on the broadcast tab is slightly different in VDJ 7.0.x Pro. Select MPEG (Shoutcast/Icecast2) and verify there is an encoder such as the LAME encoder in the file system. Start with 128kbps. Enter the server such as us.slstreaming.com, your port number (example 60050) and password.
Click Start Recording and play song. It looks like this with the default skin.
To hear your stream, set About Land -> media tab -> music URL to your parcel’s complete music URL (server and port), such as http://us.slstreaming.com:60050 and to verify by either listening in to the SL viewer or use a graphic visualization such as found in the view menu of foobar 2000 tuned to your parcel’s music URL.
Do you wonder where your listeners are from? Try the new HUD!
Locate SLStreaming.com in search and teleport there.
Get your stream by teleporting to the store, then teleporting to next available server of the size you want and paying the poster the proper rent for the desired rental period. In this example, we need just 10 listeners for test, but much more capacity is needed for a club, usually 50 listeners minimum, 100 best practice or even more for professional use (1000), all available from SLStreaming.com. The floating text above the poster should be bright green, indicating the port is available for rent.
When bought, information comes up on your screen and you should be able to load a link for your in-world browser.
Go ahead and bring up the screen in your browser or touch your shopping bag and you also get the opportunity to load this screen. Or load it in external browser and bookmark it. This is the best way to get all the current information about your stream at SLStreaming.com and it has the exact information you are looking for, including the URL for the backup server in case you ever need it.
Bring up your SAM Broadcaster main screen.
Go to the Encoders pane (lower right) and click on the big „+“ sign to add a new encoder.
We’re going to be setting up a stream in the most normal way. Note the selection, MP3 Normal.
You need to add the specifics for your encoder. These maxed out choices will work fine for you on your SLStreaming.com stream in many parts of the world (High Quality, 128kbps, Stereo, 44.1 kHz). Reduce only if your internet connection is poor.
On the Server tab, you need to add all of your SLStreaming.com details (Server IP, Port and Password). Make sure Shoutcast is selected. Copy from your browser or optional method. Make sure each field has just the data asked for, no extra spaces. Also, on the password, make sure the number of stars corresponds with the number of password characters. This example shows the stream is kept private because you may not be running a true 24-hour internet radio station suitable for listing in the Shoutcast directory, but turning on titles is extremely useful in case an in-world radio is set up to display information and switch to your stream on the selected parcel.
Usually you want to archive your streamcast, so don’t neglect this tab. Check the box and choose a file location. You can personalize the file name where it says „stream.“ Notice all the choices about limiting the file. Usually it is best to do about a one hour file manually, because then you it won’t get cut off mid-note and you can easily burn it to CD. The file opens automatically when the stream starts, and closes when you shut down the stream.
Click OK, and your encoder is now done. It will be the last one on the list. Go ahead and hit the screwdriver icon to open it, and you should see all your information just as you left it.
Time to start the selected stream. Click on the triangular arrow-like icon to start the stream. It connects.
Here the stream is under way. The VU meters at the deck and at the encoders are active.
The way to stop the selected encoder after you are done streaming is to simply hit the black square icon near the start arrow you hit previously.
On Desktop B, Sam has some great statistics, which are more appropriate for a full internet stream radio station. In world, many stream radios tell you how many listeners there are without the invasive registration that Sam might require. However, the log is very important to diagnose problems such as skips in the stream (maybe lower kbps needed) or indication of tracks that failed to play. If Sam can’t find certain tracks, it goes through the playlist very fast until it finds one it can load with no error reporting except in this log, where an error message might appear in red.
This image shows how you as owner of a parcel (or member and in proper role of certain groups) can go to About Land -> Media tab and set your audio URL to the music parcel URL from SLStreaming.com web page, for example, http://us.slstreaming.com:60084
This is what your stream looks like in a browser at example address http://us.slstreaming.com:60084 when not streaming. Note this screen may also appear as completely white in Shoutcast if not streaming.
This is what you want to see when the stream is up and running. You can also see the maximum number of listeners on this page.
Finally, there are other pages associated with your web page, such as song history and admin. For admin, you need to use the external browser because of pop-up for the login as admin and your assigned password.
An earlier version of this tutorial lives here.
Visit your online shopping bag to get the current address.
Use the button beside each server to get a predefined subject (port and SL-name).
Thank you all for using slstreaming.de
Answer: Simply teleport to your server’s touchscreen. Touch it once to unlock the touchscreen and click on START for each server, please.
Send an Instant Message to Zuhan Tomcat in-game, please.
Please, also use the new Email-Support-Service. (Check your online shopping bag.)
Some customers want/have to use the IP address directly:
Open your shopping-bag-webpage to find out your server’s IP, please.
Get twice for your money!
Here you even get access to a second server you can use in case of emergency!
The backup server is always located within a different serverroom in a differen city.
(No server has 100% uptime over several years.) In case of an outage you could simply replace your address with the address of your backup server to switch to your backup server. Same port, same password!
So if you main server’s address is jas.slstreaming.de and your backup server’s address is slstreaming.de you would have to shorten the address in order to use your backup server system.
Also shorten the address within your parcel music url.
And no, you do not have to shudown your backup server. Simply let it run! So you can switch fast.
PS: Switch to your backup server once to test it, please!
There was a restart of ’slstreaming.de‘ for maintenance.
Your main server on jas.slstreaming.de and ms.slstreaming.de have not been restarted!
If your backup server is still offline you may need to restart it yourself. You can directly control your server via its touchscreen.
You can watch your server’s status in-game using your touchscreen or via your online shopping bag.
PS: All backup servers should be back to normal operations now.
You may use Winamp with an installed SHOUTcast-plugin:
The DSP-shoutcast-plugin for winamp is already the new beta 2 version. So you have to use its……legacy mode…
…when you setup the plugin within winamp for SLStreaming! (So it should NOT ask for your username.)
SLStreaming still uses SHOUTcast-server 1.9.8
(1.) Get https://shoutcast.com/Winamp
(2.) Setup your SHOUTcast server via CTRL-P -> Plugins -> Effects/DSP -> Config the plugin’s ‚connection‘-settings.
(There are also other plugins you may want to check out:
such as jetcast)
Muse is for free!
(Also for available for Apple PCs!)
[6:28] Irkalla Caudron: my friend S. B. told me about your streams, and I will never use another again. You’re the best in SL with service, and price.
[6:29] Zuhan Tomcat: thank you. may i quote you within the blog with your sl name? xD
[6:29] Irkalla Caudron: absolute ^^
Your server starts up within 5 minutes after payment here:
Thank you for using.
Do you use Traktor? If so icecast is what you want. Try one.
The username to use one of those icecasts is „source“!
You have to choose a name for your mountpoint when you setup your icecast-connection.
If your mountpoint’s name was set to „/listen.mp3“ your ingame music url was: http://us.slstreaming.com:YOURPORT/listen.mp3
(If us.slstreaming.com is the address of your mainserver.)
There will be one store only where you can book and renew shoutcast and icecast servers.
Wear it, touch an available server and choose the amount you want to spend.
You can even pay into each gift-card even if you do not own it. Simply choose your card’s id when you use the gift-card-service-terminal.
(Each gift-card has its own card-id.)
Watch the current bandwidth usage yourself in realtime.
You can watch the bandwidth usage within the store here:
Each server is connected to the internet with 100Mbit/s. (mega bit)
That equals to 12500KiB (kilo byte) <- Used unit by the bandwidth monitors.
us.slstreaming.de even has 250MBit/s
So if the sum of TX (transmit) and RX (receive) was higher than 12500 the server would be a bottleneck and your stream may skip. In that case I would add more servers and rebalance the workload.
Answer: Here you do not get a notecard! All you need is displayed within the text over your box!
Unable to find your box? Please, visit the in-game store. It will help you automatically.
Also give your online-shopping-bag-webpage a visit. (Touch your in-game shopping bag for your private URL.)
Here you can find a list of your servers and everything you need to know to connect to your server as source and listener. There is also a link to teleport in front of each server’s touchscreen.
If you have any problem setting up your client you can now also send an IM to wolwerin Blackheart in-game.
Question: Icecast server returns „Could not create listener socket on port …“ when I click on start within the in-game dialog-menu.
Answer: In this case the server is already up (so the socket is in use). Check its webpage and if it is up you can connect to your server with your client.
Please, join our group which is called „SLStreaming.de SUPPORT“. See you there!
Or IM Zuhan Tomcat directly.
BLOG USAGE: Due to too much spam users must be registered and logged in to comment.
jas.slstreaming.de is out of order
Backup server does work.
Sry for that.
I hope jas.slstreaming.de is back up soon.
[4:55] Zuhan Tomcat: hi
[4:55] Zuhan Tomcat: thx4using!!
[4:56] ZiZo Galicia: yvw Zuhan 🙂
[4:56] Zuhan Tomcat: you are using slstreming for more than a half year now
[4:56] Zuhan Tomcat: thx4that
[4:56] ZiZo Galicia: and thanks 4 providing
[4:56] Zuhan Tomcat: xD
[4:56] ZiZo Galicia: cause its the best 🙂
[4:56] Zuhan Tomcat: may i quote you within my blog? with your sl name?
[4:57] ZiZo Galicia: sure np 🙂
If you want to have a higher max count of listeners you can just let me know!
I do upgrade your box for free during your current lending period so your settings would not change!
Downgrade costs 100L$
(Well you can also book another server which supports less or more listeners yourself so you would not need to ask me.)
You can download the free version of Winamp and install the jetcast or any other shoutcast plugin to become the source of your radio station.
If you have any question you can now also ask Marsha Fizzle in-game.
Chrystal Bingyi: i think i can say – they are the best cause i tried some before i came to you !
Gorewing Wachter: im very happy hehehehe love bugging my friend with my strang music lol hugs
[8:02] Coolhack Caproni: i have been using your streams for about 5 months now
[8:02] Coolhack Caproni: love them
Within the last months the average bandwidth usage takes about 5-15% of the available resources only!!!
[11:28] Zuhan Tomcat: hi does anybody know a windows shoutcast client which supports the mic and is for free?
[11:31] S. S.: there is a mic feature in winamp
[11:32] P. J.: some plugin for winamp i think too
[11:32] Joran Yoshikawa: Mh there is a plugin with micfeature in winamp
[11:32] Joran Yoshikawa: It is one of the shoutcast Streamers
[11:32] Joran Yoshikawa: let me check rea fast
[11:35] Joran Yoshikawa: this plugin features a mic support
[11:35] Joran Yoshikawa: http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details/141993
When you set your server to be public it is listed on http://yp.shoutcast.com
Note: You do not need to set it to „public“ if you want to use your server for private use only. (Such as listening to music with your friends only.)
Public usage (public internet radio) may need a licence if you stream protected music by others.
If you perform live or stream your gig or only use your server with friends only you do not need to have a licence.
A real internet radio licence is available for 1 EUR / day (GEMA) via the gema webstore. Let me know if you have any question.
Regards, Zuhan Tomcat.
Yes, you can use the second output to setup your backupserver. So you can switch fast in case of emergency.
Please, do not use auto-connect if it is the backupserver! Thank you.
Please, use something higher such as 96kbit/s or 128kbit/s.
24kbit/s does not work in-game and may let the player get stuck so you would even need to restart SL if you want to listen to streams using your SL-client.
Regards Zuhan Tomcat
SL-resident Strahd Bandler now offers support for customers of SLStreaming.de
He is familiar with SAM, too, so if you have any question about the SAM broadcasting tool
let him know!
I do refund for no reason within 14 days after your first booking.
I also do refund if your main- and backupserver is offline at the same time.
(Please, read on here if you do not know how to startup your backupserver.)
Please, let me know if you have any question.
You can send me an instant message in-game: Zuhan Tomcat.
Or post your question within this blog.
Please, touch your box once and click on „status“.
You can also open its webpage via the menu, too. If the page is white or if it says „server temporally down“ the DJ is not yet connected!
Once the source is connected the webpage is up and you can login there as „admin“ with your password.
Green text indicates that this server is available for booking.
White text indicates that this server is already booked.
Red text indicates that the in-game-box is using the backupserver and you can start, stop and request the backupserver’s status via its dialog-menu now.
I do recommend to use the domainnames
slstreaming.de has address 188.8.131.52
ms.slstreaming.de has address 184.108.40.206
jas.slstreaming.de has address 220.127.116.11
Traktor users have to use the IPs listed here!!!
When you setup your client (such as winamp via CTRL-P->plugins->dsp/effects) to connect to your server (as the source of your stream),
please, check your connection settings:
Within the server’s address DO NOT USE http in front of your address and put the port into its seperate field.
Please, reset your password within your client’s settings. DO NOT USE copy’n’paste! Normally it is a blank character within your password somewhere.
If you clicked on ‚reset password‘ you would have to restart each server as well in order to apply the new password. (Please, use your in-game touchscreen.) The webpage will be updated within one hour. You can use your touchscreen to get the current password.
Yes, open your server’s webpage and click on ‚admin login‘. Use ‚admin‘ as username and your password.
A streaming server’s webpage is up when the DJ is connected to the server. So if you get a blank page (or if it says ’server down‘) the server is running but the DJ is not yet connected.
SLStreaming.de is dedicated to audio streaming within Second Life.
