Hi everyone at /int/! We, some guys from /b/, have set up a radio server for Ernst, it is called Radio Ernstiwan
, the name being a pun derived from the popular "Radio Eriwan" (or Radio Yerevan for some). Now anybody can share his music, feelings or thoughts about the industrial output of the Ottoman empire during WW1 with his fellow Ernst brothers.
The address is: http://radio-ernstiwan.tk:8000
For listening just employ your favourite software which is able to play network streams and use the links in the upper right corner when a stream is on (pic 3 related, this is the "server status"-page when a streamer is active, otherwise it's empty). If you wanna start a stream yourself you will need a streaming software. I use "butt" (not kidding), which is a lightweight stream client without much configuration: https://sourceforge.net/projects/butt/
. You'll also need an account. For testing purposes I created a test account which everyone may use (IP 18.104.22.168, Port 8000, mountpoint "stream", Icecast-User source, passwort teststroem), pic 4 related. Later, you'll need a personal account, and since there is no front end for this, you can just send me a mail at ernstiwan at protonmail.ch
with the username you'd like to have, I will then generate an account for you. This is also the mail address to contact me outside of EC, in case you feel the need for it.
In case you are worrying about legal issues (which you should) and streaming copyrighted stuff: Our host (cryptoho.st) is known to be DCMA-friendly (which means they don't care about complaints), the physical server location is Romania, which is also known to be a safe haven for most stuff. Since it's the internet everyone should be aware that there is no 100% certainity, but we sure did everything we knew to set up this stuff in a way no one needs to worry.
Specs of the server:
Hoster: cryptoho.st, physical location: Romania
CentOS7, 1GB Ram, 20GB drive space, shared gigabit, unlimited traffic
7€/month, payment via bitcoin
Streaming software: Icecast 2.4
Sorry for crossposting, but in this case I hope it's justified. Have fun using the radio, and stream whatever you want, there are no restrictions whatsoever. Well, maybe calling for mass murder and the likes WOULD be restricted, but you know what I mean. Just make sure you don't hog up the stream when someone else also wants to use it - üarallel users are limited to 1 by server configuration. I will start a stream for testing purposes at 19:00GMT+2 (german time) or so, it will just be a music loop, so everyone can check whether he can connect to the radio. In case you have any questions: Feel free to ask, I'll help you out as good as I can.
