How to replace shoutcast nsv server with streamcast nsv serv

Post by cwoodward » Sat Dec 04, 2004 1:56 pm

Hi,

I have a shoutcast nsv server running. How do I replace it with a steamcast nsv server? Yes, I'm asking for installation instructions.

Is there a way I can use one sc_nsv binary to drive a shoutcast stream and a steamcast stream at the same time?

What is your operating system please (this is to detail the instructions) ?

No, you will be able to feed one server at a time. BUT you will be able to relay the DNAS by Steamcast.

The OS is Linux. Right now I'm using sc_nsv server to stream 5 or 6 video streams to the world.

Ok, so you will have to upload steamcast and steamcast.conf (configuration file edited to suite your needs : passwords, logins, number of listeners, eventually the address of the current DNAS to relay, define if you need log files, name of the mount point (/stream.nsv for example))

Then CHMOD (with your FTP client or directly from the SSH session : chmod 755 steamcast).

When this is done, you'll have to start the server from the SSH command line and in the directory where it is located :
./steamcast steamcast.conf > /dev/null &

Your new server should be up and running. That's all :)

thanks bingo, sorry for the late reply was out of town this weekend.

Let us know if you need more detail, should be straightforward from bingo's instructions.
