How to setup Oddcast
The following instructions are a step by step guide to configuring
1. Download Oddcast :
2. Install Oddcast :
When your installing you will be offered some 'components to install'. The first three boxes are going to be ticked but you must also tick 'LAME encoder dll' aswell. This will ensure you can stream in MP3 format that everyone is compatible with.
3. Install LAME encoder dll :
Towards the end of installing oddcast a message box will pop up informing you that you must install a file called 'lame_enc.dll' into your Oddcast program directory (usually c:\program files\OddcastV3). Click NO as you can downoad the file here :
Copy the file into your oddcast program directory (usually c:\program files\ OddcastV3).
4. Load Oddcast :
Click the desktop or start menu shortcut for oddcast to load it.
5. Adding oddcast encoder :
Click 'Add Encoder' on oddcast. This will add an entry in the white box below, double click on this to configure it.
6. Configuring encoders 'Basic Settings' :
Bitrate: 128 tick use bitrate
Encoder Type: MPŁ Lame
Server Type: Icecast2
server IP: cp2.internet-radio.org.uk
Then go to YP settings at the top:
Public Server: tick box
Stream Description: Name of show
Stream URL: Level-1Radio
Then go to the top again and pick Advanced settings.
This is where you can record an MPŁ of a WAV of your set/show.
then hit OK
Nearly there now...
your all set up to stream, all you need is an input and some sound!!
From your mixer's output run a cable to your laptop / pc Line-in.
Stick a tune on and pick Line-in in the drop-down box next to the picture of the MIC in oddcast.
You may have to play with the 2 drop-down box's in oddcast to get the correct signal.
You will know when you have a good signal by the flashing peak Meter.
After you have the correct signal in oddcast, hit connect.... you should now be streaming.
(if not, try a re-start)
Any problems please contact a Moderator or Admin.
