Stream using a remote URL

Hello

I am new to Shoutcast. I am trying to find out if there is way to do something like the following:

1. Playlist:{URL1, URL2 ....}
Its a playlist with URLs (Songs are accessible through URLs)
2. Shoutcast goes over the URLs in the playlist and broadcasts songs one by one.

Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks.

SHOUTcast doesn't work that way. the DNAS server provides a continuous stream and it's down to the source feeding the stream to provide the songs sequentially and the listening client then plays that. there is no way to have a listener client request a specific song from the DNAS server (some source clients can provide the means to do it).

Hi DrO

Thank you for replying.

I saw that people use a tool called LiquidSoap for achieving this functionality. I will try to use the same.
