How to integrate the SHOUTcast plug-in

Integrating SHOUTcast with OtsAV involves three simple steps:

Step1: Download the SHOUTcast plug-in.

Step2: Install the SHOUTcast plug-in.

Step2: Configure SHOUTcast with OtsAV.

Note: We obviously cannot provide support for the SHOUTcast plug-in itself. We will endeavour to provide you with a basic step-by-step guide to get you started though. For more information on the SHOUTcast plug-in we recommend you visit Nullsoft's Winamp and SHOUTcast web sites.

Note: Shoutcast broadcasting is effected when in Old School mode. As volume levels are adjusted externally, and mixing is done externally, it's not possible for OtsAV to capture the final output. Instead, you should connect a cable from the main output of your external mixer, and connect it to the line-in on your soundcard.
Shoutcast would need to be setup to use the signal from your line-in connection.

Step 1.

How to download the SHOUTcast plug-in

Note: It is important you download the correct version from the link directly below, as the latest official website version of SHOUTcast does not work with Artist/Titling/Album updates in OtsAV. (SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.9.0 is the most recent version which does work fully (linked below), however, beware the official website download uses this same version number for the download setup file even though it is really the newer and problematic SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.9.1 inside).

To download the latest fully working version of SHOUTcast plug-in, click this link here.

Note: If this link does not work you can alternatively try a Google search for "SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.9.0" (file size should be 492KB if correct installer with v1.9.0 inside, therefore do not download the version directly from
