Introduction

The aim of this document is to show you what needs to be entered in the different options in the plug-ins configuration window to allow it to work with the DNAS server (sc_serv2) and Transcoder (sc_trans) configuration examples. The setups covered are:

  1. Connecting as a source to the server in SHOUTcast 2 and SHOUTcast 1 (legacy) modes
  2. Connecting as a DJ to a transcoder in SHOUTcast 2 and SHOUTcast 1 (legacy) modes


Configurations

In all of the example configurations, it is assumed that Winamp has been chosen as the input source for the stream(s) being created and that all of the passwords used are the same as those in the DNAS server and Transcoder example configuration files. Remember that you should change the example passwords when setting up your SHOUTcast system.

The choice of the encoder used is left as something for you to decide upon considering the DSP plug-in supports MP3 and AAC along with all of the different bitrates, etc. However this should not cause an issue with the example setups used but is something you need to decide upon as part of the general process in setting up a SHOUTcast system.

Finally the name of the options as shown in the english translation of the plug-in on its 'Output' tab (see Source DSP - section 3.2) will be used in this file to identify the options which need to be entered. This is mentioned incase a localised version of the DSP plug-in is used (a nice feature implemented in version 2 of the plug-in).


Direct Source to a SHOUTcast v2 DNAS Server

Connection Tab

Direct Source to a SHOUTcast v2 DNAS Server

Server Address : localhost (or the IP of the server if it is different from the local machine (see Source DSP - section 3.2.1 for more information)).

Port : 8000 (or the value set for 'portbase' (see DNAS Server - section 4.8)).

Stream ID : 1 (or the value set for 'streamid' for the relevant connection being made to the server (see DNAS Server - section 4.12)).

DJ / User ID : this can be left blank and is not used with a source connection.

Password : testing (or the value set for 'password' (see DNAS Server - section 4.8)).

Use SHOUTcast v1 mode (for legacy servers) : ensure this is UNCHECKED.


Directory Tab


Here you can enter any details as required to identify or provide contact details for your stream to any clients connecting or when viewed on the SHOUTcast Directory listing.

Make this server public (Recommended) : The usage of this setting depends upon the value 'publicserver' in your server configuration. See DNAS Server - section 4.14 for details.


Direct Source to a SHOUTcast v1 DNAS Server (Legacy)

Connection Tab

Direct Source to a SHOUTcast v1 DNAS Server (Legacy)

Server Address : localhost (or the IP of the server if it is different from the local machine (see Source DSP - section 3.2.1 for more information)).

Port : 8000 (or the value set for 'portbase' for the SHOUTcast v1 DNAS server used).

DJ / User ID : this must be left blank and is not used with a source connection.

Password : testing (or the value set for 'password' for the SHOUTcast v1 server used).

Use SHOUTcast v1 mode (for legacy servers) : ensure this is CHECKED.

DJ Source to the Transcoder in SHOUTcast v2 Mode

Server Address : localhost (or the IP of the server if it is different from the local machine (see Source DSP - section 3.2.1 for more information)).

Port : 8505 (or the value set for 'djport2' (see Transcoder - section 3.3)).

Stream ID : this can be left as the default value ('1') as the Transcoder effectively ignores this for this connection though may be used in future versions.

DJ / User ID : dj (or the value set for 'djlogin' for the respective DJ account setup in the sc_trans configuration (see Transcoder - section 3.3)).

Password : noise (or the value set for 'djpassword' for the respective DJ account setup in the sc_trans configuration (see Transcoder - section 3.3)).

Use SHOUTcast v1 mode (for legacy servers) : ensure this is UNCHECKED.
