This hint seems like an abbreviated version of a message I posted on the Shoutcast user forums in March: To broadcast under Mac OS X:1. Follow the instructions at to download, install & configure the Shoutcast server. Note that this is a Unix command line program that you run in the OS X Terminal and configure by editing a text file. It has no GUI (so if you're totally unfamiliar with Unix you'll most likely need to do a little homework first).2. Download the excellent abandonware program MacAmp Lite X (aka MALTX) from This is regular OS X native program with a nice Aqua-style GUI. Abandonware means MALTX was formerly commercial/shareware, but is now free (though unsupported). You can use either the last final release 1.1 version or the newer (beta) r10c2 (1.5b) version. You'll need a name & license code to register MALTX and the Plug-ins Power Pack (included in the download) but they're right on the web page you download it from.3. Follow the instructions in the "Broadcasting Read Me" under MALTX's help menu to configure the Broadcast plug-in's preferences (in MALTX's preferences window) and point it at the IP address and port of the shoutcast server you downloaded, installed & configured in step 1 (this can reside on the same machine as MALTX or a different one).4. Make a playlist of some mp3s or oggs or aiffs or wavs or whatever (MALTX supports lots of formats). Start it playing, click the Start button in the Broadcast plug-in's prefs and that's it, you're on the air.__________________Bo OrloffWub-Fur Internet Radio -fur.dhs.org
I really like MALTX and would prefer to use a real time playlist manager like MALTX, but in my experience with it... for one thing it will suck the life dry out of a CPU when broadcasting (mainly because you do downsampling via MaltX I believe (as opposed to the Shoutcast Transcoder (sc_trans) that downsamples via the CLI and lame mp3 encoder. Still a bit hefty on the ol CPU... but doesn't cause the stream to skip while encoding. Also - don't know what causes it - but MaltX will crash on a fairly frequent basis. PRob hitting some bad MP3 or something, but with a collection of 53k mp3's I am bound to have a few bad ones... When MaltX crashes... you get dead air.So far the only reliable, cpu friendly solution I have found is using the shoutcast server (sc_server) and the shoutcast trasncoder (sc_trans).

Winamp is a media player for Microsoft Windows originally developed by Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev by their company Nullsoft, which they later sold to AOL in 1999 for $80 million. It was then acquired by Radionomy in 2014. Since version 2 it has been sold as freemium and supports extensibility with plug-ins and skins, and features music visualization, playlist and a media library, supported by a large online community.
Version 1 of Winamp was released in 1997, and quickly grew popular with over 3 million downloads, paralleling the developing trend of MP3 (music) file sharing. Winamp 2.0 was released on September 8, 1998. The 2.x versions were widely used and made Winamp one of the most downloaded Windows applications. By 2000, Winamp had over 25 million registered users and by 2001 it had 60 million users. A poor reception to the 2002 rewrite, Winamp3, was followed by the release of Winamp 5 in 2003, and a later release of version 5.5 in 2007. A now-discontinued version for Android was also released, along with early counterparts for MS-DOS and Macintosh.
Winamp was first released in 1997, when Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev, formerly students at the University of Utah, integrated their Windows user interface with the Advanced Multimedia Products ("AMP") MP3 file playback engine. The name Winamp (originally spelled WinAMP) was a portmanteau of "Windows" and "AMP". The minimalist WinAMP 0.20a was released as freeware on April 21, 1997.Its windowless, menu bar-only interface showed only play (open), stop, pause, and unpause functions. A file specified on the command line or dropped onto its icon would be played. MP3 decoding was performed by the AMP decoding engine developed by Advanced Multimedia Products co-founder Tomislav Uzelac, which was free for non-commercial use. It was compatible with Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0. Winamp was the second real-time MP3 player for Windows, the first being WinPlay3.
WinAMP 0.92 was released as a freeware in May 1997. Within the standard Windows frame and menu bar, it had the beginnings of the "classic" Winamp GUI: dark gray rectangle with silver 3D-effect transport buttons, a red/green volume slider, time displayed in a green LED font, with track name, MP3 bitrate, and "mixrate" in green. Overlength title appear as slowly scrolling text (or "marquee").. The skeuomorphic design somewhat resembles shelf stereos. There was no position bar, and a blank space where the spectrum analyzer and waveform analyzer would later appear. Multiple files on the command line or dropped onto its icon were enqueued in the playlist.
According to Tomislav Uzelac, Frankel licensed the AMP 0.7 engine June 1, 1997. Frankel formally founded Nullsoft Inc. in January 1998 and continued development of Winamp, which changed from freeware to $10 shareware. Despite the fact that there would be no extra features by paying $10, Winamp's popularity and warm reception brought Nullsoft $100,000 a month that year from $10 paper checks in the mail from paying users. 2b1af7f3a8
