I've noted some issues with trying to listen via VLC, but assumed it was due to the local server thing.

Tried stream64.mp3.m3u with Windows Media Player. Doesn't work. (Windows Vista)

Tried stream64.mp3.xspf with VLC Player, i get the title of the song (excellent choice btw!) but it still doesn't play. What am i doing wrong?

OK, I've changed a little, due to some incompatibilities I noted.

24 Kbps: http://xcc.thruhere.net:8000
64 Kbps: http://xcc.thruhere.net:9000

Most likely nothing, I changed the server around due to incompatibility with WMP, try it again and see. A friend has been checking out a chipmunk infesting the 24Kbps line.

64 Kbps worked nicely for me! On the 24 Kbps i got some... "lag?" (fragmented audio... pauses every couple of secs)
On this link: 64 Kbps: http://xcc.thruhere.net:9000 I'm listening to Orbiter Radio!!!

Was that your voice after the Guns 'n Roses song?

Yeah, probably, it won't have been anyone else's!

It's a crappy in-monitor microphone at the minute, I need a headset.

According to my output monitor, though, the bandwidth is actually twice what I configured it for, which is odd. I'm looking into it... enjoy the hold music.

I have it working with Winamp now. Though, everything is very squeeky. Winamp says it's playing at ~ 94 kb/s, which is faster than what your server says it is streaming. Could this be causing that?

It won't be helping. I've had this problem using edcast with the shoutcast DNAS server. Trying to balance off this problem and fix it or tackle the compatibility issues with Icecast, which does stream in the right bitrates.

Right bitrates: perhaps. Audio: None.

The previous configuration was working just fine. Now i hear nothing.

I know this isn't a very helpful post. What kind of information do you need from me?

I never got the chance to test the old setup with Winamp, since it was updated before winamp testing and after my testing with VLC. So I'm not sure about compatibility with winamp before, at least on my end.

Ok, ok. That was an informative but complete fail. Shoutcast it is.

Still messed up bitrates, but closer to what I want... both seem to be spewing out close to the 128 / 100 mark now.

I have both up, sounding exactly the same, tested with WMP. This is looking ever more like an impractical solution for a radio station, huh?

I have it playing alright on my end now, at least no noticeable pitch problems. Occasional buffering lag, but I know my internet is crappy on my end.

EDIT: My buffering issues have seemed to pass. Probably since the bitrate is a little lower now. Sounding good.

I thought I saw some VLC player users in the mix somewhere. Glad it's working, at least in part.

Streaming in various bitrates at a frequency all of our own, burning into the orbital sunset, chasing the sun... we are Radio Orbiter.

Do you take requests!?

I'd like to make the first one in Orbiter Radio, please.
