MuSE is a user-friendly tool for network audio streaming.
MuSE provides the free software community with a user friendly but powerful tool for network audio streaming, making life easier for indypendent free speech online radios.
MuSE is an application for the mixing, encoding, and network streaming of sound: it can mix up to 6 encoded audio bitstreams (from files or network, mp3 or ogg) plus a souncard input signal, the resulting stream can be played locally on the sound card and/or encoded at different bitrates, recorded to harddisk and/or streamed to the net.
When sent to a server, the resulting audio can be listened thru the net by a vast number of players available on different operating systems.
To be operated MuSE offers graphical interfaces and a documented commandline interface in the good old unix style.
Here are some key features of "MuSE Streamer":
· Mixes up to 6 channels + 1 soundcard input channel simultaniously
· decodes and mixes both ogg and mp3, from files or network streams
· encodes at different bitrates and sends multiple mp3 or ogg streams to icecast, shoutcast and darwin servers.
· offers two different intuitive user interfaces and a documented command line interface
· play, stop, pause/resume, position and volume for each channel, looping thru playlists and reconnecting automatically to lost server connections
· efficient multithreaded architecture with emphasys on performance to support older CPUs
· reusable API interface to the core mixing engine permits to adapt new interfaces
· libogg 1.0
· LAME 3.93.1
Stream servers supported:
· Litestream lightweight and efficient mp3 streaming server
· Icecast mp3 and ogg streaming server
· Darwin Streaming Server with Icecast emulation
· Shoutcast mp3 streaming technology
What's New in This Release:
· this release backports several bugfixes done in the 0.10 branch where Xant is developing the Carbon/OSX GUI and finding bugs, among them some quite important ones that is worth to have freezed here. The next major release will take some more time, requiring a relevant rewrite of the MuSE core switching to float DSP, meanwhile all GNU/Linux users are encouraged to upgrade to this version improving stability and usability. */ changes in Ogg/Vorbis encoding are now applied various memory leaks have been found and fixed little noise on the left channel mix is fixed code cleanup for recent compilers unstable ncurses GUI removed from trunk unstable scheduler removed from trunk updates to manpage and documentation
