Shoutcast is a music streaming server program. Shoutcast source code is not available, so it cannot be customized directly. There is an equivalent Open Source project named IceCast, but it is written in C++.

This package provides a pure PHP implementation of a Shoutcast server, so it can easily be controlled from PHP.

Introduction
------------

PHP Shoutcast Server is a proof-of-concept Shoutcast server written
in PHP. The project was started 18 June, 2005. It encodes tracks on
the fly using LAME and has a very basic in-built HTTP server.

Usage
-----

Open up config.php and change the path to point to a directory
containing MP3 files.

Download the LAME executable encoder and put it into the same directory.
xcLame.exe 3.92 was used during development.

Execute run.php through the command line.

To listen, connect to http://127.0.0.1:45400 with a compatible player.

Sample output:
Playing: The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony (Instrumental version).mp3

<Users Listening: 1>
* 127.0.0.1:59885        WinampMPEG/5.54

The HTTP server can be found at:
http://127.0.0.1:45401
