Note that for an sc_trans connection you can not directly use the sc_trans port to check your setup. Instead for the sc_trans test port (9878) you will need to monitor port 8054 and for the sc_trans live port you'd use port 8052, or the main port 8050 - please use the '''test port''' for testing!

!!!sc_trans, special considerations

As you will stream directly on the main electro-music.com channel some special thought has to be given to the the connection. Especially, when your show is over

  yous must disconnect

from the server again, or else silence will be aired. There is a kick utility to be used by stream ops to ban you from the sc_trans channel for a while when you do not adhere to this rule.

You can not use the main sc_trans port (9876) for testing - use the test port (9878) for that (and to listen use port 8054 then). These ports are set up totally identical, so that after testing the only thing you will have to change in your setup is the port number.

!!!Server information
>>bgcolor=#dee3e7 border='0px solid gray' padding=5px<<
Electro-music.com uses two types of streaming servers that you can use to broadcast your music on radio.electro-music.com.

*There is an sc_serv (SHOUTcast D.N.A.S.) server that supports many ports you can stream on. These ports can be switched into the main radio stream by a stream operator, or they can be used on their own for a more private streaming session.

*The other server is the sc_trans server (SHOUTcast Transcoder), this one has one port that will bring you on the main radio stream without any operator intervention, and another port that is used for testing.

Both servers use the Shoutcast streaming model, so you will need a streaming client that is able to stream in the shoutcast format. Some clients are mentioned at the bottom of this article.

There are several clients around that support the shoutcast format, for details see the bottom of this page. All clients will need similar setup details before you will be able to stream successfully.

!!!Connection setup
>>bgcolor=#dee3e7 border='0px solid gray' padding=5px<<
To be able to connect to a server you will need the following information:

(:include Radio.StreamingConnectInfo:)

In the sc_serv (DNAS) model there are public ports (8130, 8132, 8134, 8136 and 8138) and there are private ports. There also is an open port (8056) which can be used for [[Radio.OpenPortStreaming|Open Port Streaming]].

The private ports have passwords known to their owners only - when you forgot your password please contact one of the [[http://electro-music.com/forum/groupcp.php?g=24864|stream ops]], they can look it up for you, or you can go to the {_chat_room_} to ask for help, usually there will be some stream operator around.

In the sc_trans model there are two DJ ports, one used for testing (9878) and one used for broadcasting (9876).

(:include Radio.StreamingPasswords:)

!!!Audio routing setup
>>bgcolor=#dee3e7 border='0px solid gray' padding=5px<<
To be able to to get music into your streaming client you will need to set up some audio routing. This very much depends on your particular audio setup and your computer's operating system. In general you will need to select a sound source in the streaming client, and this can be either an external source (i.e. an audio in connector on your computer) or an internal source (i.e. a program that generates audio, or a program that mixes audio).

On a Mac or on a Linux system you may have the most flexible routing, for OSX there is soundflower and for Linux there is Jack (although I do not know how well Jack is integrated into streaming client software).

Still on windows there is some room to move as well. Some audio drivers support a "what you hear" audio device which can sometimes be selected as a streaming source. An alternative could be VAC, or Virtual Audi Cable, a virtual audio port allowing for routing around audio on a PC, this is not free software though.

For a more detailed explanation how to set up your audio routing pick one of the following links:

!!!Testing your setup
>>bgcolor=#dee3e7 border='0px solid gray' padding=5px<<
Note that for an sc_trans connection you can not directly use the sc_trans port to check your setup. Instead for the sc_trans test port (9878) you will need to monitor port 8054 and for the sc_trans live port you'd use port 8054, or the main port 8050 - please use the '''test port''' for testing!

To test or troubleshoot your connection the easiest thing to do is to set the connection up as good as you can, and then at your failure point go to the {_chat_room_} to ask for help.

There are also some things you can try without help from others. There is a [[Radio.RadioInfoSrv2 | port overview page]] which has a lot of detail once you know what to look for.

*The left column, status, shows a lit light for a port that has a client connection and a dull one otherwise. When it is lit you are, or at least something is, connected to that server. When it is not lit you either nothing is connected or your stream title or song title has some non ASCII characters in it, or one of those bits is too long too be handled by the server - keep it ASCII and short, at least while testing.

*The listen column shows a speaker symbol you can click on to listen to the audio which currently is on that port [this currently does not work for the Chrome browser] - the speaker will be lit up yellow when there actually is audio, and dull otherwise.

*The channel column will show the stream title that you have set in your streaming client (prefixed with electro-music.com).

*When you hover your mouse pointer over the light bulb in the leftmost column a popup window will show with some additional info. Check your bitrate here, for switched ports this '''must''' be set to 128 (kbps).

You can check out your server page http://radio.electro-music.com:8070 (use your port instead of 8070) as well and you should see something like this:

For a more detailed explanation of how to connect a streaming client to a server pick one of the following links:

*using [[Radio.ConnectInfoEdcast|Edcast or oddcast]] as a streaming client for Windows or Linux
*using [[Radio.ConnectInfoButt|BUTT]] as a streaming client for Windows, OSX or Linux
*using [[Radio.ConnectInfoNicecast|Nicecast]] as a streaming client for OSX
*using Reaper as a streaming client
*João had some nice freeware Mac client setup
