Roku Soundbrigde Streaming fra Icecast

Author:mike - Mon Mar 31 00:27:47 2008

I have to write this down while its fresh in my memory ...

At the office we have a Roku Soundbridge which is a unit with a lot of potentiale and right now i unleashed just a bit more of it.

My goal was that i wanted to play music files in XMM on my computer and somehow route the sound to the soundbridge (and the stereo at the office)

I tried a lot and i installed a lot of crap which i may not be using, but what i think i did is the following:

I followed three different guides to install the icecast server. Icecast are installed from ubuntus repository We start ice cast with:

# icecast -p 5BQcAllxH1J3o

which is an encrypted password made with the command mkpasswd:

root@mike-desktop:~# mkpasswd foo

The hash is different everytime you run it ... which for some reason is normal (i didnt bother looking into it)

The icecast config file looks like this:

I stole this from one of the eight or some guides i looked at this night, dunno which one but this works.

Ubuntus repository has a package names "xmms-liveice" which gives you an effect plugin that will stream the played file to the icecast server.

And then i programmed:

into my Ruko as "Radio Skive" (that's going to be fun next time my colleages wonder why the local radiostation plays the same artists all the time ... ofcourse depending on if they'l read this before that happends) 

Either way ... this works for me ... i spend three hours on it ... and forgot to  do my work ... luckilly im the boss :p 

.. as a small sidenote i found a program nammed "Soundbridge Commander", written in java and it gives me remote access to the Roku's display and on screen remote control.
