SHOUTcast hosting is a streaming audio solution that allows radio stations to effectively broadcast audio online (this is known as webcasting). You broadcast through the internet instead of broadcasting through radio waves. It is powerful and stable, meaning you can throw all of your internet radio traffic at it without having crashes or other problems. There are 3 stages to the broadcasting process. You don’t need any complicated or expensive software or hardware at your end either; a simple desktop PC and broadband connection will work fine.
Very much so. SHOUTcast is an industry-standard platform used by thousands and thousands of radio stations all over the world. Its wide compatibility means people can listen with most players and operating systems. Listeners will be able to connect to your MP3 stream from all over the world, with all the popular media players, including Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp, Realplayer, XMMS, and many more media players besides. Although incredibly simple, it can cope with even the heaviest demands and will not break under pressure. Its simplicity works to the broadcaster and listener’s favor.
Shoutcast is an internet broadcasting tool usually used for audio streaming. Radio stations or end-users can use it to bring audio or video content to an internet audience. SHOUTcast uses mp3 (MPEG Layer 3) technology for audio delivery and NSV for audio/video delivery.
If you want people to hear what you have to say, online radio is the fastest, most accessible way to do that, and ShouCheap.com offers the most professional solution to achieve your goal.

The SHOUTcast protocol was designed to support Internet audio broadcasting. How does that work? The DJ sends audio data from his personal computer to a central SHOUTcast server that then turns around and streams it out to any connected listeners.
