SHOUTcast is a free-of-charge audio homesteading solution. It permits anyone on the internet to broadcast audio from their PC to listeners across the Internet or any other IP-based network

SHOUTcast's underlying technology for audio delivery is MPEG Layer 3, also known as MP3 technology. The SHOUTcast system can deliver audio in a live situation, or can deliver audio on-demand for archived broadcasts.

I was thinking this would be the perfect thing for the UG community, seeing how we all love music. I will absolutely be a DJ, hands down. We got a server up.

Ideas
Classic Rock Hour
Metal Hour
Gear Talk Live
Modern Hour
Legends Hour

Have you ever done this before? It's freakin' sweet! Earlier today, I was bored as hell just laying on my bed. I had an erection, so I started to use my penis as a gear stick and I was pretending I was driving. Has anyone else here ever tired this?

I have 6-7 gigs of pure classic rock...
I have mics, but do you need fast internet? I've got dialup that goes like 50 kps.

We can see how it works out.

There's no punk or ska

Those are just ideas, we will add some stuff of course.

I've got a mike and a good broadband connection. I'd be happy to help out for the classic rock hour.
#14
i might be able to do the modern rock hour... if we get the whole thing on its feet that is.

oh, replace the classic pop with punk or something...

I don't want to DJ or anything but if you need a website layout and code and stuff, I do that professionally. Unfortunately my connection here at home is not going to be able to handle that sort of bandwidth (I live in a house with 5 people who really like Torrents), and I can't divert that sort of bandwidth from the line I have at our office, or I'd be glad to host it.

haha he does... he does. smooth criminal and thriller are some of my fav. songs...
but that would be basically all we could have...

and i think no one would really volunteer for "Michael Jackson Hour"

yep, i can't find you if your on.
#24
i would do it if there was some way i could do a grab bag hour of just anything goes, but mainly centered on alt. rock and punk. i've got well over 30 gigs of music, so don't worry about me having limited content.

#26
would it be a live cast or archived cast? i think live would be cool but its too hard cause we got things to do... unless we could do like some late show form where we do new when we can, but have reruns when we need them...

EDIT:

or maybe even subs.

I have a fairly decent mike, but I don't have any music I could contribute. I could do something on some weekends, but I've been busy recently, I don't know.

But enough of my babblings, this is a really good idea, I hope it sticks. Good luck.

Playing music which you don't own is illegal in some countries.. probably America..

I can contribute though. Graphics, the website, coding.. that kind of thing. Hit me with a PM if you need 'owt.
My name is Marc! Silly username.

Well, I have a decent computer right now....2 GB DDR2 ram, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card, running cable internet, and a 3.2 GHz processor.

In a few months when college starts, I'll have 4 GBs DDR2 ram, GeFroce GTS8800 graphics card and a duo core 3.2 ghz processor.

Actually, as long as you clearly state on the website itself what you are playing, and also mention it down the mic, it is legal. I used to do one of these websites until it got closed down.
