Streaming to Shoutcast

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Has anybody done this in OS X? It's my understanding that Audion can do it natively. I played around with it a bit but haven't tried it yet. I'm trying to set myself up as a DJ just for fun, and I would be using somebody else's Shoutcast server.

Any experiences, thoughts about this?

    Hmm, Shoutcast's FAQ states that there's currently no broadcasting solution for the Mac platform in any guise: Audion can decode incoming MP3 streams, but so does iTunes. I can't see anything on the Audion site suggesting it can stream either.

    You can listen, but you can't play, unless there's a PC in the chain somewhere, and I keep having interesting ideas to get that to work, which I just haven't got the time to pursue just now...

    Panic seems to think differently than Shoutcast does. Audion 3 can apparently stream to a Shoutcast server. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:

    Notice it says right in that panel that you're streaming to a Shoutcast server. it leaves the server part up to you, whether you run the Shoutcast server on your Mac using this perhaps, or whether you connect to a remote Shoutcast server.

    But I'm new to this too, which is why I was asking the questions... if I'm wrong about any of this, please correct me.

    Hmm, very interesting.

    When I've got some time to play around (not least punching holes in my firewall), I'll see if I can get it to work.
