I am hunting for a Streaming Media Server (software), that will allow me to do the following.
#1: Using a web-based page, to start and stop the stream.
#2: Add songs to the stream and remove songs from the stream through the web page
Shoutcast, Windows Media Services (now the new (smooth streaming in newer servers)), Icecast (I have installed, but cannot seem to get it working).
I found this for playing the stream through my website.
So, that would work for playing the LIVE stream.
Now, just need to find a media server.
With WMS (Window Media Services) (2008 and below of Windows Servers)
I can create a Playlist with asp classic or net, and have it run through a database, LOOP and create a playlist.
However. What if I remove a song, or add a song.
Will the playlist update itself with the LIVE Stream? Or will the station have to be stopped and started up again?
That might have to be. I might have to play a commercial or some kind of a jingle or a station break whenever the update needs to take place.
(Just letting my mind wonder while writing this up.)
My dream is to run a radio station of sorts, from my home.
To add and remove songs from the stream through a web page, no matter where I am at.
Once I can get something like this up and running, I can then modify it in the future.
I would just like to get a station up and running. Mainly, just for my family at the moment.
Anyone with any possible ideas on this would be great.
