This is the Radio Ernstiwan thread, the radio made by Ernst for Ernst. If you want to tune in you need a media player which is able to handle network streams, VLC, Winamp and many others do the job. Just go to the radio home page and click one of the links in the upper right corner when a stream is on (pic 4 related). If you want to do a stream yourself, then you need a software which is able to create an audio stream and direct to an Icecast-server, because that is what the radio is running on. The most popular setup is to use your butt :-D (https://sourceforge.net/projects/butt/
), and in case you need to have more than one input channel you want to stream (for example microphone and music) to use butt and VoiceMeeter combined: https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/
- with VoiceMeeter you can define multiple input channels and direct them to a virtual output channel, which butt recognizes.
For streaming you'll also need an account. Radio Ernstiwan has a public stream which everyone can use when it's not occupied (see below). There are also personal accounts, which can be used by streamers to ensure that they can't be blocked by someone else. In case you want to get a personal account, write a mail to ernstiwan at protonmail.ch
, our dedicated radio helpdesk team will immediatly start working on your request! There is also a calendar for announcing streams, you'll have to create an account at https://zoho.eu/
and then write a mail to the above address and tell me your registration mail, so I can authorize you for the radio calendar. Not the most elegant solution, but so far it's the best we got. Since the calendar is intended for collaboration, everyone who has an account will be able to see your registration mail address, so don't use your private mail (which you probably shouldn't do anyway). The calendar is linked on the radio main page. There are no restrictions in what to stream, it can be music, any kind of readings, podcasts, you while munching on your cornflakes, whatever. You like it: chances are everyone else also likes it!
Connection data for the public stream:
address: radio.ernstchan.xyz, port 8000 (the domain has changed from the initial radio-ernstiwan.tk)
If you have trouble connecting, just post your questions in the thread, there are several people who already have a working setup and can help you out. If you want to help and support Radio Ernstiwan, then your best bet is to listen and stream the hell outta it, since this is what is was made for. Luckily there is no need for financial support. In case you wonder about privacy/copyright issues: Our host flies the flag of St.Tome in the caribbean, the physical server location is Romania, and it is known as "privacy-orientated" and DCMA-friendly, so we should be on the safe side here.
- Front page integration: Ernstadmin is wörking on a front page message whenever a stream is on, so that you don't need to check the radio page or the thread to see if a stream is on.
- I'll make a little howto page and integrate it on the radio main page
Thanks to Ernstadmin we already have a link to the radio page in the upper right of the EC front page. Otherwise things look breddy good. We have 2 (former) RfK hosts who are interested in making german-based program, and on /int/ we have quite a few guys who volunteered as streamers, so there's plenty of stuff to listen to, which is awesome, big thanks to everyone involved by the way!
