broadcast a radio station on my website


Hello everyone,

i want to play a specific radio station (which broadcasted on a specific website) on my website too,

so, what are the softwares that i should use for this situation ?? & how can i get that radio station be brodcasted on a box in my website page ??

i searched google, but i found alls talking about creating my own radio station, but thats isnt what i want, i only need to broadcast specific radio station (thats already exists) on my website

You better check with a lawyer first, because you might get in trouble unless you have permission of the originating site. Sites are supposed to pay royalty fees for songs they play. So rebroadcasting one without permission would probably be illegal.

it's unlikely that a free internet radio station would find out or care if you were re-broadcasting their stream. i know you can use vlc to stream media, so it's probably possible to re-stream another stream with vlc. you could also set up iptables to redirect incoming connections to the station's main server.

edit: if they are playing the stream through an embedded player, you can probably just copy the source onto your page. if none of this makes sense to you, just say so.

If you told someone "If you murder Mr X. you probably won't get caught" and he goes out a murders Mr X. Does that absolve you of any moral or ethical responsibility in Mr X's murder? I guess that is what someone told that woman in Minnesota about downloading songs without paying. She now owes them about $12 million dollars in fines.

As for rebroadcasting something, I think that they would mind. If you just included a link to the site, I don't think they would mind as then they would have more traffic on their site looking at whatever ads that may be there and they would still make their money.

hello alan99,
1st thank you for warning me about that, but the radio station that i want to rebroadcasting, doesnt play songs its only a news radio station, & i will also ask them for the rights for rebroadcasting their station

you can probably copy and paste the <EMBED> code over to your site. just make sure you fix any relative links, that is if you see anything that looks like "/bla/bla/thing.swf" or whatever change it to "http://the.original.site/bla/bla/thing.swf".
