Radio News

Jan 28 Tripradio changes: there's now a fallback stream which plays music when there's no DJ. As a result, the username is changed to tripradio - the password isn't changed. To get FTP access to upload fallback stream music, pm bod.

How to apply

Send a message to either bod , Teknos , or trainwreck on the IRC chat to get the streaming password.

Please also ask in the IRC chat channel #tripradio on Snoonet if you have any other questions.

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.
