Subject description: Streaming media
 

Thought I would take a look and see if I could get SHOUTcast DNAS streaming media server to run in Puppy. They ask you to register before downloading so reluctantly I did that. For Linux if you want to run your own server they offer pre-compiled binary packages for 32bit or 64bit. I didn't see any source code offered, so decided to give the 32bit server package a try.

Version is 2.5.1.724

I did a few tweaks to permissions and file names. Figured out how to have a config file that loaded and worked. Not much editing needed. There is quite a lot of documentation included in the package. The main binary is named "sc_serv" and it starts and runs OK. It continues as user "root" and seems fine like that. Tested in Wheezy, Slacko 5.7 and Precise.

I made 2 scripts, one for Start and one for Stop which have menu entries and pop up notifications to let the user know the status when you click them. I placed the main directory in /root/my-applications since the server is writing to log files. Alternatives would be to use /var or run from /mnt/home if available.

Regarding streaming source clients, I tried Darkice/Darksnow but that did not want to work for some unknown reason. The streamer program butt (broadcast using this tool) on the other hand worked OK. Other source clients are available.

To view what is happening when the server is running just direct your browser to localhost:8000 (or whatever port number you have used if you have changed away from the default). Use the admin password to look even deeper. To broadcast over the internet you may need to set up your port forwarding in your router.
