Winamp ====>> Shoutcast Server

Allows me to have a live radio station using Windows XP.

How can I do this in Ubuntu? (using the same shoutcast server)

Meh, I'm guessing that it's not do-able. That sucks.

i can't remember how winamp/shoutcast works, but you could try audacious, it's very similar to winamp, or vlc. but maybe you're talking about using it another way :confused:

you can use something like streamtuner to help find stations too.

edit: i think i remember how winamp works and streamtuner and audacious works the same way.

Sure there is, just go to shoutcast.com and click on any of the tune-in links then tell it you want to open it with your own media player, for me it opens in totem. There used to be streamtuner, it doesn't seem to be working any more.

Additionally, rhythmbox and amarok both support last.fm, jamando, and magnatune.

No, I'm looking for something with a plugin to play TO a shoutcast server. I think I'll just go for the solution that I already know works (Winamp).

it is possible to fix that, mine stopped working but i think i editted a config file somewhere to get it working again. (i'm using a very old distro though so things have probably changed in more recent releases)

there's also tunapie if you can't get streamtuner working

i kind of had a feeling you'd be talking about something else lol. i've never done my own stream but maybe Icecast is compatible?

First off, have some patience. Don't expect people to reply within 20 minutes of you posting.

Secondly, this isnt' even a support forum. Try one of those when you have a question like this.

Thanks guys for the help... I've decided to stick with my original solution for doing this. I respect the people who at least tried to help. That's what makes the Ubuntu community so great.

I use Shoutcase all the time.
Easy way is to install XMMS (ver1.x) its just like older Winamp. Takes very little resources and works flawlessly with Shoutcast.
