User Reviews

  • When people ask to see my butt, I have no problems getting my butt out and showing them. I show them how flexible it is and how easily I can get it to do what I want. I show them all the different streams that can come out of my butt. It's fantastic. Buttastic, in fact.

  • 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!!
