Broadcast Configuration

See the SAM How-To for useful information on purchasing your 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 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.

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.
