With RadioDJ you have to use a stand-alone encoding solution.

Which is no more difficult than using a built in encoder.

RadioDJ and Sound Empire Caster

Using a stand alone encoder solution means RadioDJ can be left alone to do what its does best and that’s AUTOMATE music, promos and jingles.

Its a method we used when we ran a backup stream for an Internet radio station a few years back, We ran RadioDJ alongside a standalone encoder and rarely had issues.

Here are just some of the free Internet radio stream encoders available.

1) Sound Empire Caster ($0.00)

Sound Empire caster 1.2.7

This is standalone encoder that recently came to my attention developed by someone from Ukraine.

Download SE Caster Here

Just unzip the program folder and place on the C:\ drive outside of the program folder.

It supports DSP plugins so it may be an alternative if you still want to use DSP sound processing. Just place the required DSP files in the SECaster program folder.

Please note: If your antivirus software complains just add the Sound Empire Caster program folder to the exclusion list in your Antivirus software and Windows Defender.

2) MB Recaster MB Recaster

3) Edcast: The original stand alone encoder (Shoutcast v1 & Icecast)

It should connect to Shoutcast v2 servers in legacy mode at least it did on our test server.

Happy streaming!
