With RadioDJ you have to use a stand-alone encoder.

Which is no more difficult than using built in encoders.

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, We ran RadioDJ alongside a standalone encoder and rarely had any issues.

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

1) MB Recaster MB Recaster


Did You Know: You can connect the RadioDJ history plugin to the CurrentListeners.txt file in MB Recaster to give you a listener count.

2) Sound Empire Caster ($0.00)


This is standalone encoder that recently came to my attention.

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 may be an alternative if you still want to use Stereotool or other DSP sound processing. Just place the required files in the SECaster program folder.


If you get a blank message box pop up while trying to run SECaster you may need to install Visual Basic

Visual Basic Download unzip the folder & install the correct version for your operating system.

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

Download Edcast Here

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

Happy streaming!
