Question Icecast or Shoutcast?


I was thinking of setting up a streaming audio server of some kinda, obviously using uncopyrighted music

I know of shoutcast as i've previously used it on windoze& linux, I've only recently heard of icecast, which is better?

Go with Shoutcast.

Last I checked Icecast only broadcasts the Ogg Vorbis format. That really isn't a problem, but I think there is a lack of actvity over there. They seem to die off then come back to life.

Shoutcast is being developed by NullSoft and there is a Linux version of the server. Digitally Imported uses it.

edit: I can't type...
