Hi is it possible to stream from the box over the network to a shoutcast dedicated server i think it is possible there must be a plugin around or someone could create a addon for me any hints would be great thanks

reason being that wire trailing around the house to pc isn't easy would be better when it is goin from the wireless conenction on the box to the web as i think anyone would think so utilise the stuff the dreambox 7020-s i have has to offer

Streaming over your wireless connection can result in poor results in my experience, as 11g does not really have enough spare capacity. Reformatting of the stream would cause a significant delay and require some hefty processing, but it has been done IIRC. Search the forum for more.

I'm not an expert in this area, but I do use the VLC client on the PC to watch the stream directly from the dreambox via the web interface. I use an 11g connection, and it's marginal on bandwidth if the wireless connection is not at 100% sig. That is also due in part to both the bridge and the WAP suffering from being overwhealmed by the huge volume of data, a known problem with my specific (Linksys) hardware/firmware.

My knowledge beyond that is not much cop I'm afraid.

Yeah, i wrote somewhere about transcoding the dreambox output using VLC, and broadcasting it that way over the net. Tricky, and limited by the small ADSL upload bandwidth. Looking forward to my ADSL2 connection, and the increased upload speed and what I can do with that.

Right, well dont know if its what you need, but read this thread I started first. http://www.satellites.co.uk/php-bin/forum/showthread.php?t=53249

I basically figured how to stream from DB7020 using VLC, and then transcode the video and broadcast over my net connection. You're limited by upload bandwidth which is 256k for most ADSL, however I'm getting ADSL2 soon, where I will have 1.3Mbit upload, so looking forward to the increase, will really be able to put out a decent stream then. The only thing I haven't really solved is an easy method of changing channels, but it is doable. Once you've read that, you can try this in VLC, its got all the settings for a transcode:

:sout=#transcode{vcodec=WMV2,vb=192,scale=0.5,acodec=mp3,ab=64,fps=15,channels=1}:duplicate{dst=std{access=mmsh,mux=asfh,url=:8154}}

Ok, from right to left, you have the video codec to transcode into, I found this one to best quality but you may wanna try divx.

Video bitrate, important number, you wanna maximise it obviously, but you cant go too high due to upload limitations.

Scale, reduce the resolution of the video, makes it a small window on the stream, can be maximised and still looks ok. Audio codec, mp3, not tried much else there.

Audio bitrate, 64k, pretty much the lowest acceptable.

Turning down the frames per second of the output to 15 gives alot smoother output.

Channels 1 cuts down the audio again, this is a pretty skimpy transcode, but I've found it watchable.

MMSH is the streaming protocol, so in windows media player, you could access the stream mms://your.ip:port.

Muxing type, asf is the only one compatible with those settings.

Finally the port you're going to broadcast on, 8154 here.

So for instance, plug all that into VLC, and you wont be able to see directly what you're outputting. If you open WMP, then goto mms://127.0.0.1:8154 you will see you're output. Good luck, anymore questions, maybe talk you through it.

i'm a little confused what it is exactly you want to do? i'm not too familiar with shoutcast, but from what i know its an audio streaming solution by the guys behind winamp? so what are we trying to stream here exactly, and to what?
