With Impulse Media Player you can broadcast your music / recording device over the net.
To do so, you have two kind of server to choice:
  • Windows Media

While WMA does not require any additional file, streaming in Shoutcast need two separate softwares.

For lame.exe, just put it in the Impulse Media Player root directory.
To set up and run shoutcast server, you can take a look to the getting started guide.

By the way, here's an hint to run a shoutcast server using a simple configuration.

- Go inside Shoutcast program directory, open the scservsimple.conf file

go to the line
publicserver=always, comment using ; token and replace with
publicserver=never

add the following line:
portbase=8005.

since default port is often busy , using this port you have more chances to connect in.

Once you have updated the conf file, just run scserv.exe_ as admin and start it using simple configuration.

If you have success, you'll able to connect to shoutcast and spread your music over the network !
