SHOUTcast is a software application that allows anyone to stream audio over the internet. It is commonly used for creating internet radio stations.
No. SHOUTcast is proprietary software and uses some proprietary data formats.
SHOUTcast is installed on a server. It receives an audio source, such as an input from an audio application. SHOUTcast converts the audio data coming from the source into a streaming audio format consumable by anyone connected to the internet. Anyone who wants to listen simply opens the URL in a compatible software client, such as a media player.
Shared hosting doesn't normally support SHOUTcast, mainly because of the bandwidth it uses.
Yes. Check what the bandwidth limitations are, and if there are any fees for exceeding them.
Most mp3 players and services can play SHOUTcast audio streams, including Winamp, iTunes, and Windows Media Player. VLC Player has removed support for the SHOUTcast protocol due to licensing concerns.
There is a free version of SHOUTcast. It does not include monetization features, analytics, or support. Premium editions of the software provide some or all of these features and also allow for the use of CDNs.
Yes. You can set up a SHOUTcast streaming server on your web hosting account, then connect to it from the SHOUTcast app on your own computer. Although you can skip the server and broadcast directly, this isn't recommended.
You can run SHOUTcast on Linux, Mac, or Windows web hosting, providing your plan supports it.
Yes. SHOUTcast supports the streaming of video.
SHOUTcast v1 is not supported by modern browsers, as it uses non-standard ports which have been deprecated. SHOUTcast v2 is fully supported, and also adds API support.
There is no set limit, because it depends on the bitrate, which will vary depending on whether you're broadcasting audio or speech. It also depends on how many users are listening.
If you plan to broadcast high-quality audio, or build a large audience, a dedicated server is a good idea. It will provide room to grow, while giving you complete control over the software. As with a VPS server, check the bandwidth limits carefully.
Yes. You can submit your SHOUTcast-based internet radio station to iTunes. Your station will need to be approved before it appears in the directory.
Take a look at Icecast v2, or use a subscription service that offers a full hosted radio platform.
