Configure Line In with SAM Broadcaster & SHOUTcast Server

Take your radio station online

SAM Broadcaster is something of a genius. It’s equipped with the Radio/FM tools professionals use 🙂

SHOUTcast is cross-platform proprietary software for streaming media over the Internet. This software can broadcast to and from media player software, enabling the creation of Internet radio “stations”. SHOUTcast Radio is a related website which provides a directory of SHOUTcast stations.

The SHOUTcast software uses a client–server model using HTTP as a transport protocol. In real-time we can compare SHOUTcast Server as Apache Server that is responsible for providing live radio streams to listeners across the world. SAM Broadcaster manage all streams like songs, radio etc. for broadcasting.
