How to Integrate SHOUTcast

Last Updated: Aug 31, 2017 12:25PM PDT
Adding a live radio or music stream into your apps is a great use of digital media. It gives your app a customized and robust functionality for users to enjoy. Apps for the music, radio, church, non-profit, and educational industries would be great candidates for a SHOUTcast stream.

Note: If you've already set up a SHOUTcast account, please proceed to Step 3.


1. To begin, choose a streaming product that works for you. Click Download or Show More under each option to reveal more info.

2. If you're going with the unmonetized option, DNAS 2.4, click the button below Getting Started to read the set-up overview. You can also check out the SHOUTcast Forum for more info.

3. Once you've set up your SHOUTcast account, you will need to locate the IP address and 4-digit Port number for your stream.
Please make sure your live stream URL is in the following format:

http://(ipaddress):(port number)/
*When you enter this into your web browser, you should be taken directly to the SHOUTcase server website.

**You can easily find this info by right-clicking on the audio file after you save it to your desktop. Select "Get Info" or "Properties" and the pop-up window will give you the necessary information.

(If you do not know the IP address, you can use this tool to find the IP address using just the domain name.)

*If you have trouble finding this information, please contact SHOUTcast so they can help walk you through the steps.

4. Then add the following extension to the end of your URL:  ;livestream.mp3
For example, your URL should look like this example:

5. Finally, include this URL into a Music feature functionality or a Website functionality in your app and you're all set!
