Stream audio out software


I have an mp3 file on my website that I would like to be able to stream and found a program that will do it for $40: http://www.mp3soundstream.com/

This program is probably not for Linux and probably uses an ftp program like gftp. Is there software for Linux that would help me stream audio files (mp3s) out of my website?

You might want to take a look at Icecast, GNUMP3d, or Ampache.

It looks like all these apps are for running a stream off your pc-my website is online (dynamic IP address): is there a way to stream audio from an online site?

Do you have access to install software on the server that your site's hosted at? If so, then you could install one of those programs and stream media from the server. That's really what those programs are meant for, so it's just a question of whether or not you're able to install software unless I misunderstand your intentions (which is quite possible! ).

I am the administrator of my home network and did install 2 of those programs, thing is that I was told that I need a static IP address to host an FTP site from my pc and Verizon DSL told me that to get a static IP address that I would need to upgrade to a business DSL account (or pay 2.5X).

I have an old pc running Slack 10.2 that I do leave on 24/7 and would like to use for this. Was my info wrong-if so, I need a HOW TO site for setting up an FTP site with a dynamic IP address.

Thanks!

verizon is leading you astray - unless they also dictate that you aren't 'allowed' to run servers on your account.

you'll need to register a static domain name at one of the free sites that do this, ie., dyndns.org, or no-ip.com (i use no-ip.com), and install their dynamic update client, and you're all set.

cheers,

Got it working

I tried some tweaking of my router (it has a Shoutcast setting which is set up for ports 8000-8005) and changed the port in gnump3d to port 8001. Then I disabled my no-ip program and just used my current IP address. I went to a pc outside my network, opened up firefox and typed:

http://1234.IP Addy.7890:8001

I was very pleased to see a web page that GNUmp3 made and I am now streaming....for today! I now need to figure out the write permissions in no-ip...or run no-ip as root. Is that safe?

well, it's been a while since i installed the noip duc, so i went back and read the instructions.

it is okay to run noip as root because once its read the config file in /usr/local/etc, it drops root privileges.

if you run noip as non-root, you'll have to point to a config file where the user has privileges.

that being said, you can always have it run as a daemon at startup. there are scripting instructions in the readme, however, the tar file also provides a script for redhat that works on fedora core.

cheers,

Thumbs up

Thanks for the info on no-ip.com, mrclisdue! I'd never heard of that site before, but it's quite slick. It's nice to have a resolvable address for my home server now instead of trying to remember my IP address of the day...
