DeeFuzzer is a new light and instant application made for streaming audio and video over Internet. It is dedicated to people who wants to create playlisted web radios or web TVs with rich media contents including some metadata.


The easiest way to install the DeeFuzzer is to do:

sudo easy_install deefuzzer


sudo pip install deefuzzer

For a manual install, see INSTALL


Usage : deefuzzer CONFIGFILE

deefuzzer example/deefuzzer.xml &

Note that you must edit the config file with right parameters before playing. You can find an example for a draft XML file in the directory "example/" of this application (maybe in /usr/share/deefuzzer/example/ if installed with the help of

Since 0.3, deefuzzer doesn't print anything into the shell, then a right parameter is needed in the XML config file.

BE CAREFULL : at the moment, the multi-threaded implementation of deefuzzer instances avoids shutting down the streams with CTRL+C... You have to kill them manually, after a CTRL+Z, making this:

pkill -9 deefuzzer
