We are setting up an online station and we are having problems with the stream shutting down and playit live is frozen we have to shut it down reopen it to get it working again we are using a VPN so is shoutcast or Icecast which is the best and which version?
Thank in advance
It depends what you want to achieve with your streaming. Personally I prefer Icecast (version 2.4). It is straight forward to set up and broadcast to a 'mountpoint' and then listeners can listen to the same 'mountpoint'.
Sorry i did mean to say VPS windows 10 version, since we last spoke i have found out that it is to do with the sound card settings.
With it being a VPS there is no built in sound card like a normal pc you set the encoder as no audio, this was tried with radio boss and station playlist and both now work.
The problem with play it live we found is there is no setting for no audio you must add something in so is there anyway round this.
