Ices0 is a source client for broadcasting in MP3 format to an Icecast/Shoutcast server.
This is a fork of the Icecast ices0 utility, and has been carefully enhanced to be compatible with CentovaCast, Airtime, AzuraCast, kPlaylist and others, as well as standalone.
New features (over v0.4)
This version 0.4.6 features the following enhancements:
- Script module for easy shell scripting (i.e., for kPlaylist).
- Support for MP3 Unicode id3v2 tags (aka the infamous "garbage in
song titles" bug). MP3 stream metadata will always be UTF-8-encoded.
Note: Newer Icecast servers assume ISO-8859-1 for MP3 mounts, so you might need
<charset>UTF8</charset>as a mount param in your
- FLAC/OGG/MP4/MP3 transcoding support, including correct metadata from tags.
- CrossMix option to crossmix tracks at 100% volume (instead of fading) by Daniel Pettersson and Rolf Johansson.
- MinCrossfade setting to specify a minimum track length for which to enable the crossfader (for jingles etc.).
- Disabled cue file generation for reduced disk I/O.
- Works with new and old FLAC APIs (now works with libflac 1.3.2/1.3.0 instead of requiring the older 1.1.2 to compile).
- Support for M3U/M3U8 playlist files (ignore lines starting with #).
Note: M3U/M3U8 files should be saved WITHOUT a BOM.
- ReplayGain support throughout:
- MP3: reads
Note: TXXX frames "win" over RVA2, this is intended.
- FLAC: reads
- Ogg Vorbis: reads
- MP4: reads
- MP3: reads
- Fixed MP4/AAC support to work with libmp4v2.
On Ubuntu 18.04/Linux Mint 19.1, these can usually be installed with:
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libshout3-dev sudo apt-get install libmp3lame-dev libflac-dev sudo apt-get install libfaad-dev libmp4v2-dev
For the Python and Perl scripting engines, additional libraries are needed:
sudo apt-get install libpython-dev libperl-dev
You need git and a working automake build environment.
git clone https://github.com/Moonbase59/ices0.git cd ices0 aclocal autoreconf -fi automake --add-missing ./configure
configure's ouput. Ideally, it should end like this:
Features: XML : yes Python : yes Perl : yes LAME : yes Vorbis : yes MP4 : yes FLAC : yes
(This is a full build with all features.)
make sudo make install
