I can't tell you which is the best, since I'm justing starting out with this too and only tried one program: Gjukebox, a MP3/Ogg jukebox with a webinterface, which is supposed to support audiostreaming through Icecast (site is down for 2 days now) and Shoutcast. The program seems nice to me, but I find it very hard to install (has a lot of dependencies like LAMP, ogg-vorbis, some Perlmodules, cdparanoia etc).

I hope other people come up with some alternatives, because I'm interrested in this subject too.

I sometimes use my Icecast server to stream music over the internet. I use ICECAST as streaming server and ICES to down sample audio and feed into ICECAST. I am using it on Slackware 10.1 and the installation was pretty easy...the tricky part could be the configuration files...

Do you use Icecast 1 or 2? What do you mean by "to down sample audio"? I am looking for an alternative for Gjukebox. Perhaps Ices is what i need. Can it play MP3-files and feed those to Icecast?

Thank you,

Maarten

I use Icecast 2 (the latest version). By downsampling I mean re-encoding it at a lower bit rate (usually 24 Kbps from a typical 128 or higher) to save on bandwidth. Check out the 3rd Party Apps section on the Icecast website. Ices works for me but there are other tools available. Check it out...

Tux

Edit: Icecast website seems to be down since couple of days...
Edit Again: Yes, it can play MP3's and Ogg's both.

Question Linux Radio Tools?

I'm also searching for a good Linux radio solution. I've been using Winamp and Oddcast under WinXP, but I'd much rather run my station thru linux. I'd love to find something similar to SAM that's open source and free...but I haven't been able to find anything. I looked at GJukebox as mentioned above, but it hasn't been updated since 2002 and I'd like to use something that's still being maintained.

I need something that can broadcast in Ogg Vorbis and MP3 and can work with Peercast (or possibly Alluvium in the future?)

thanks...

Hi ZephyrXero,

You might want to check out Jinzora.

A full-featured, stable package that orders your MP3's (don't know about Ogg, check out the site), collects album art and song lyrics automatically (if enabled) and can stream to soundcard or third-party Jukeboxes.

It can be embedded in several CMS's, like Mambo.

I happily used it until today. I rebooted my machine and for some strange reason my complete FTP-dir, holding all my songs was gone! Don't know what the h*ll happened, but it probably has nothing to do with Jinzora itself.

Good luck,

Maarten
