IceGenerator provides a direct stream generator for Icecast/Shoutcast servers.




IceGenerator provides a direct stream generator for Icecast/Shoutcast servers.

It streams MP3s to an Icecast/Shoutcast server without resampling it, saving CPU time. It features directory searches, MySQL/PGSQL support, M3U/PLS support, ID3 tags, META dynamic info, and a telnet interface. v

Main idea for this program is radio automation on a Icecast/Shoutcast server. If you have many server processes and CPU saving is your priority, u can use IceGenerator.

Obviously mp3s/oggs will be already resampled to allow their streaming on your bandwidth capability.

Here are some key features of "IceGenerator":

Automatically put into playlist directories full of mp3s, or a MySQL table
No resampling is allowed, so CPU is saved
MP3s/OGGs are played randomly or in alphabetic order, without repeating twice a song
You can loop the whole playlist at its end
When IceGenerator quits, finish its last song first
IceGenerator status is optionally reported to syslog/log file
Very useful when used with crond
ID3 support


Linux 2.x/FreeBSD/NetBSD/MacOS/Solaris/OpenBSD
You have to install libshout2. You can find it here
For ID3 support, you have to install id3lib. You can find it here
An IceCast/Shoutcast server
An Intel 486-like CPU class (maybe a fast 386-like will work)
A good broadband connection
