  • I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong!

Is that some heavy metal, I can see in my drink?
I thought that I was wrong once, but I may have been mistaken :-)

Yes... It's back using a mishmash of heritage versions of servers, apps and stuff.

If you're running a Shoutcast station at the moment BEWARE of updates. The latest Shoutcast v2.6 is designed to monetise. $9.99/pcm for restricted audience and bitrate, plus access only via the Shoutcast directory.

I seem to have lost the ability to stream in AAC, so mp3 is going to have to do, for the moment.

I've also managed to have it stream via Alexa and carAlexa. It's pretty nice driving around listening to my stuff. Thanks for indulging me.

Got it work on my PC via the VLC player. Is there a stream that can be added to my internet radio?

I don't know. I used to use that stream address on my old (deceased) Sangean WFR-20/Reciva and it worked...

I tried http://perfidiousalbion.me:8040/index.html?sid=1 as an added station on my Frontier-based radios; it does not play.

If I open that link on my PC, I get the "Shoutcast stream status" page, requiring me to click on 'listen' and select a player to play it. That works (I used JRiver).

Not exactly my cup of tea, though...

Try http://perfidiousalbion.me:8040 

(i.e., without all the added stuff).  I added it to "my favourites" at the Frontier Nuvola portal and it plays on the Hama tuner.  The same stream also plays when added to "my streams" at Grace Digital's "myradiosplus" site and likewise on Reciva.

Well, I'm still here to continue to relate the saga of bringing LiquidLounge back from the dead...

The problem is that most of the stuff it used to run on has been "improved" and monetised. So it took ages to find a heritage version of Shoutcast which didn't require a $10.00/month sub even if you're not even using their servers. But I eventually found a ten-year-old version, which although it lacking a couple of useful features works quite well. A further problem was that the latest Winamp would just spontaneously shut down for no apparent reason, so once again LiquidLounge is running on decade-old software. I hope to achieve the levels of reliability LL maintained nearly 15 years ago when it would run for months unattended.

So apologies to all my faithful followers out there, both of you. Hopefully, it's back (again), spreading music from the sublime to the 'Gor blimey around the world.

Thank you for indulging my petty vanity project...

Did you look into use Icecast server rather than. Shoutcast?

Open source and still receiving updates.

Looks near enough the same to a player but you would probably have to change your source.

@Paul Webster Just so long as it works in my car and stuff like Alexa can play it at home. That's pretty much my needs catered for... Plus making fake ads...
