Icecast Stream Setup and information for Sam Broadcaster

SO for those of you who rent an Icecast stream from abyss the setup is very simple
 

Depending on what broadcasting software you are using each setup will be a little different
When you get your stream info in World you will see info in this format
stream IP - stream.abyss-shoutcast.com
stream port - 0000
stream password - urpass
Land URL - http://stream.abyss-shoutcast.com:0000

Land Url given in world by the rental terminals for icecast are missing mount point at end 

please use correct land url

example  ---  http://stream.abyss-shoutcast.com:0000/stream

  • Now its time to choose an encoder
  • If using sam broadcaster 4.2.2 then make sure to use MP3 (Normal)
  1. In converter Tab which will be first tab to show leave Quality at Fast Resampling
  2. change Format to your desired bit rate and settings ( I Recommend using 128kb/s, 44.1khz Stereo )
  3. Leave all other settings here alone and now click on server details tab
  4. In server type you are going to select Icecast
  5. Then select Icecast 2
  6. under server details you will enter all your stream info as follows
      • Server Ip = your streams IP (stream.abyss-shoutcast.com)
      • Server Port = Your stream Port (0000)
      • Password = Your stream Password
      • Mount = /stream     ---- (This can be changed by logging into centova cast control panel and changing mounts name)
      • Station Name can be anything like dj name or your club name
      • station description, Genre, and Website URL can be left alone no change as they are not used
      • Leave list on public station listing UnCheacked
      • Make sure Title Streaming is checked unless you do not want song titles to show in world or on shoutcast boards
      • then hit ok and your done
  7. hit the button that looks like a play button on encoders and if it starts you did everything correct and are now streaming live
  • If using Newer versions of sam broadcaster use mp3 (LAME_enc)
    1. In converter Tab which will be first tab to show choose your bitrate ( Recommended 128 kbps )
    2. Choose mode ( Recommend Using Stereo )
    3. Sampling Rate Leave as AUTO
    4. Then Click on server Details 
    5. Select at top Icecast under server type then below that choose Icecast 2
      • Same setup as above in 4.2.2 as for server Ip, port password
      • Username Leave as Source
      • Mount will be changed to /stream    ---- (This can be changed by logging into centova cast control panel and changing mounts name)
      • list on public station listing UnCheacked
      • Make sure Title Streaming is checked unless you do not want song titles to show in world or on shoutcast boards
      • then hit ok and your done
    6. hit the button that looks like a play button on encoders and if it starts you did everything correct and are now streaming live
  • Now setup streams in world by adding your land url to your land or shoutcast boards
    • remember to use the /stream at the end of the url example http://abyss-shoutcast.com:0000/stream
    • if you change the mount in centova cast control panel you will also want to change the mount in the encoders and land url as well
