Question Is there an open source equivalent to SAM Broadcaster?


I've been trying to find some good Linux radio broadcasting tools for a while now and haven't had much luck. I've been using Winamp & Oddcast in WinXP, but I'd much rather run my station from a Linux box. Is there anything similar to the SAM Broadcaster that's free and open-sourced on Linux? I tried setting up XMMS and Darkice, but that just wasn't cutting it... it was just doing a stream based off my soundcard output, and I only want the music to be streamed, not the rest of my system's sounds I also tried setting up Jack, but didn't get too far. I'd really like something like SAM though b/c it has better shuffling, or even something like GJukebox which has web-based requesting built in. I'm streaming an Ogg Vorbis stream through Peercast as well. Any ideas? thanks...

[edit: added link to SAM site in case someone doesn't know what I'm talking about]

No, Icecast is just a DSP. SAM is a complete radio management and encoding solution... it handles all your playlists, requests, and everything.

Yeah, that is exactly what i'm looking for, too.. any application, if one looks for "shoutcast" etc, just receives streaming, while what is needed is to connect to a server (IP, pwd and port) to upload the stream. In Windows i use WinAmp with ShoutCast plugin, but WinAmp does not exist for Linux (i use Suse and even Icecast appears not to have Suse versions)..

Does anyone have any idea of other ways ??

As with other posters, I am also looking for internet broadcast software. However, I'm relatively new to linux (5 months), and have never broadcast on the web before, so I'm especially keen to find something basic, fairly idiot-proof and easy to get the hang of while I learn the ropes and start playing about with more advanced features.

Software advice, help and direction would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers.

Hope this helps

I have been researching this problem for a while now and there does seem to be a viable solution concerning Internet DJ software for linux. The Programs name is IDJC (Internet DJ Console). From my experience with the program, if you don't need mp3 support its ok to just install it using your native package manager, but if you require support for other formats such as mp3 and ac3 you must compile it from source. The source code is available from their site (it's not allowing me to post the url -- lol) If you have never compiled from source before the key commands are usually ./configure ; ./make ; ./make install. Although I'm sure there are plenty of instructions available for such actions through a good google search.

IDJC looks great - going to give it a shot

Thanks siruther666 - IDJC looks like what I was looking for.

My roommate's been running a streaming 80's station for several years now, and has stuck with SAM because of its features. I've been searching for a solid replacement, and considering writing one on my own, but now that I've found this I'll give it a try.

I also just found "somasuite" but think IDJC is closer to what I was looking for.
