Radio Tray is an online radio streaming player that runs on a Linux system tray. Its goal is to have the minimum interface possible, making it very straightforward to use. Radio Tray is not a full featured music player, there are plenty of excellent music players already. However, there was a need for a simple application with minimal interface just to listen to online radios. And that’s the sole purpose of Radio Tray.
plays most media formats (based on gstreamer libraries)
ShuiCast is a plugin for both Winamp and Foobar2000 that provides the ability to broadcast various audio formats to a few of the major broadcasting servers. It is a continuation of the Oddcast/Edcast streaming software that can stream to either Icecast or Shoutcast servers, integrating changes made by the AltaCast and Edcast-Reborn spinoffs.
Stream to IceCast or ShoutCast
Support for Ogg Vorbis, LAME (lame_enc.dll), and AAC (libfaac.dll) – note lame_enc.dll and libfaac.dll must be downloaded separately in order to use these formats
Multiple encoders (you can simultaneously broadcast in multiple formats at the same time)
Standalone application as well as plugin for Winamp, RadioDJ and Foobar2000
Metadata not only from media player (i.e. Winamp) but also from a file, a URL or a window
Peak and RMS Meter
Live Recording (you can switch on/off without disconnecting the encoder)
ShoutVST is a VST that enables streaming sound into Icecast and SHOUTcast directly from VST hosts, ideal for streaming live performances directly from applications like Traktor or Ableton without the use of loopback methods.
MOC (music on console) is a console audio player for LINUX / UNIX designed to be powerful and easy to use.
You just need to select a file from some directory using the menu similar to Midnight Commander, and MOC will start playing all files in this directory beginning from the chosen file. There is no need to create playlists as in other players.
However if you want to combine some files from one or more directories on one playlist, you can still do it. The playlist will be remembered between runs or you can save it as an m3u file and load it whenever you want.
Need the console where MOC is running for more important things? Need to close the X terminal emulator? You don’t have to stop listening to the music – just press q and the interface will be detached leaving the server running. You can reattach it later, or you can attach one interface in the console, and another in the X terminal emulator, no need to switch just to play another file.
MOC plays smoothly, regardless of system or I/O load because it uses the output buffer in a separate thread. It provides gapless playback because the next file to be played is precached while the current file is playing.
Internet streams (Icecast, Shoutcast) are supported.
Icecast is a streaming media (audio/video) server which currently supports Ogg (Vorbis and Theora), Opus, WebM and MP3 streams. It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily and supports open standards for communication and interaction.
butt (broadcast using this tool) is an easy to use, multi OS streaming tool. It supports SHOUTcast and Icecast and runs on Linux, MacOSX and Windows. The main purpose of butt is to stream live audio data from your computer’s Mic or Line input to an Shoutcast or Icecast server; recording is also possible.
It is NOT intended to be a server by itself or automatically stream a set of audio files.
