Our stream provider updated the shoutcast server to the latest build, SHOUTcast Server v2.5.5 (Build 732) and now the software won't connect to the server. Provider contacted both the makers of B.U.T.T. and shoutcast. They are awaiting a response from both. Very frustrating. Looks like shoutcast broke something again. In the mean time, the provider downgraded our SHOUTcast server to v1 so we can connect. :( Otherwise, the program worked great!
Hi, Butt no work shoutcast server
Fantastic, lightweight piece of software. Some additional work required on the audio properties (eg being able to select input channels) but this is my goto streamer.
OMG! it's THE Program to broadcast for ShoutCast works perfectly! very stable, lots of choices!!
The tool is great, we've been using it to have our own-community internal radio for 3 years already suggestion - it would be great to implement something like auto-adjust input volume (automatically lower - so it doesn't go too high, won't you agree ?
