|Shorah All -
Beginning tonight we will be uploading our broadcast using a different (and better I hope) method.
No longer on Ustream (with its never ending adverts injected)
Instead we will be using a private shoutcast server (private = no adverts!)
The process for listening in is relatively easy and some of you may be already familiar with shoutcast
If not, its pretty simple:
First, open any browser and in the address bar type this: http://188.8.131.52:6042 - push enter
This will bring you to a status page for the server - if we are broadcasting you should see a line that reads:
Server Status: Server is currently up and private.
Next - in the top center click the "listen" link and a file will be downloaded - this will bring a file entitled "listen.pls" to your local computer.
Click this file to open it and it will launch what ever music player application your computer has associated with it (i.e. Winamp, iTunes, etc.). If you don't have an installed music player you will need one. Choose from below:
Get Winamp here
Get iTunes here
Get Windows Media Player Here
At this point you should hear the live broadcast as well as see displayed the currently playing track.
As a side note: back on the webpage that will still be open in your browser you will see a link for "Song History" - this will report the last 10 titles that have recently been played on the server.
For you Apple device / iOS users - open safari - enter the above address - tap listen and the stream will automatically play - no further steps. Put your earbuds in and enjoy!
Hope to have you all join us this evening for a fun night of listening, laughs and music journey.
If anyone can't get this to work or has any questions I can be reached on Skype at Planetary.dmr
