Virtual DJ

Once you have downloaded and installed Virtual DJ you are ready to configure it to broadcast to your SHOUTcast stream.

With Virtual DJ running go to the Record tab and then choose the Broadcast tab from the list to the left as shown below. Click the ‘CONFIG…’ button to begin your configuration.

 

The Broadcast configuration screen will now be open and ready for you to input your settings.  Working form the top leave Auto-Start de-selected then select Shoutcast(MP3) and a Bitrate of 96Kbps to get you started. (Your Second Streaming stream will support connections of up to 192Kbps, however, whether your ISP connection can maintain this will depend on the number of applications using your internet connection, cable/wifi quality, how many hops your providers’ network takes to reach the backbone of the Internet, contention ratios etc. We recommend you start at 96Kbps as a baseline, the quality of audio at this rate is near CD and will provide a great listening experience for most listeners.  It can take some trial and error to find the best connection speed to use, even with a fairly poor connection you should be able to sustain a minimum of 48Kbps).  Next select the ‘Broadcast to a radio server’ option and then enter your server’s IP address in the Server field, your port number in the Port field, choose a name for your broadcast and place that in the Name field and your password in the Password field, optionally, you can add information for the genre of music you play in the Genre field.  Click ‘OK’ to save your information, you are now ready to begin your broadcast by clicking the ‘START RECORDING’ button in the Broadcast window, once connected you can go back to your Browser, Sampler, Effects tabs etc. to run your performance, when you are done broadcasting simply return to the Record tab and Broadcast to click the stop option.
