Setting up your streaming software

Here's the details you need to know to setup your streaming software.

Primary DJ Server

Server software Icecast2
Hostname tripsit.fm - not tripsit.me
Port 8000
Mount point /tripradio
Username (or "Account") Leave empty
Password Apply to get password
Streaming format mp3 only, 128kbit - not 320kbit!

Note: Sometimes the "/" in Mount Point "/tripradio" is not required and added automatically. If you cannot join, try removing the "/" and try reconnecting. If that doesn't work, go back and add the "/". For whatever reason, it can be very finicky sometimes.

Testing Stream

Use this stream for testing before applying for the main server password. The testing stream is not public. You can listen at http://tripsit.fm:8000/tripradiotest - try testing it on your mobile phone or another computer to see if the audio quality is good.

Server software Icecast2

Basic guide to DJing

If you are totally new to DJing, here's what you need to know:

  • For Mac, I recommend Nicecast. I think its the best one out there and streams meta information.
  • For Mac and PC, the butt streaming software is good. However, I do not think meta information can be broadcast:
  • Step 1: Select Stereo mix as Audio device.
  • Step 2: Configure the server as per the server settings above
  • Step 3: Press Play to start streaming.
