Hey all as i have now concerted fully to ubuntu im now stuck as to how i would stream music / dj sessions to a shoutcast server.

On xp i used to use win amp , virtual dj, and sam broadcaster.

Is there anything similar to those i can use on Ubuntu.

Thanks for any help.

IDJC is the only thing you need to replace sam, winamp w/milkdrop

takes about 5 min to install and is super simple to use and setup, also i have had people tell me how much better the sound is on the receivers/listeners end

Rhitmbox has Prodcast, Last.fm and Radio (as well bashee) ... Vlc but has something more ... take a look at VLC

Here are three streaming tools to consider:


VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/streaming.html)
FFMPEG (http://ffmpeg.org/)
Icecast2 (http://www.icecast.org/)


Shoutcast, from the name, is probably a copy in some way of, or at least inspired by, Icecast. Icecast has been around longer.

All three are in the Ubuntu repositories and easy to set up. All three can do live streaming, too.

For playing / receiving, you have Rhythmbox, XMMS, VLC, Amarok, MPlayer, Miro and others.
