New to SHOUTcast & wanting to setup an radio (HELP PLZ)

Hello to all i'm jonathan & i am bout to start hosting an on-line radio for a lot of djs in the (DFW - Texas) & i can use some help on what i should use to make this happin?

Here is a list of what i have to use & what i need..

  • Server: (2) Dell / PowerEdge SC1425 whit 4 x Intel Xeon 3.20GHz (64-BIT), 4 GB of Ram & 1x 1TB Hard Drive. (One is Running: Windows Server 2003 SP 2.0) & (Two is Running: Windows Server 2008 r2 sp1) Note: Can run any OS if need be & the two servers are running from my house that has a 7Mb line an can get big if need be.
  • Web-Host: Unlimited Space, Unlimited Transfer, Unlimited Databases @ www.fmslick.com
  • SHOUTcast DNAS 1.9.8 (Current Stable Version)
  • Winamp 5.62 (No sound card so i am running N.O.P. Null output plugin v1.0)

  • Deejay: A way to let dj's play live over the internet / no being hooked up at my house, some type of login sys would be nice!
  • Website: A way to show what/who is playing & a good Content management system that an run a site like this would be nice!
  • Playlist: A way to have playlist play at set-times like 1am - 2am an etc. A program or plugin would be nice.
  • A way to stream to all type's of device's. maybe like a file or some then that connect the device(s) to my radio.

That is really all i can think of, So umm yeah if anyone can help me whit this? & If you help me an we get this up & running ill give you some web-space, link on the page whit a thank you page for who all helped out, or some then for helping.

1.) I think the best way would be to run the DNAS on a linux server if possible. Linux OS was designed (I believe) with networking as priority. Run the DNAS (and Transcoder if you get it) on Linux.

2.) If you can, drop the old legacy DNAS and run the new v2. The Transcoder can run different playlists at different times and is much better at handling DJs than direct connections to the DNAS. If you're dead set against using the beta v2 DNAS you can still use the Transcoder in legacy mode. The only caveat is the music also has to be on the same computer as the Transcoder.

You could get Sams Broadcaster http://spacial.com/sam-broadcaster. It makes things very easy and does a good job but it cost $300 bucks, I think they still have a trial thing. I have used it for years. You can go here to see my setup http://djwallaceonline.com
