Software name : M3W
Software version : 2.1
The interface is pretty easy to understand, if you have done any streaming before. If not, you will need to understand a little about how it all fits together, but its not so difficult.
- host name or IP number
- port number
- mount point
- login type
First of all, you will need to open the broadcast configuration panel which holds the details for the server. You can find this configuration panel under the options menu item.
The broadcast configuration panel looks like this:
Now, let's enter the details of the server into the appropriate fields. Thie first thing you need to know is what kind of server you are streaming to. If you use the icecast1 server, you should use the x-audio login. The new version of the icecast server, icecast 2, understands the http login. Both servers, as well as the shoutcast server, speak also the icy protokol. Which, however, is somewhat outdated and should be avoided if possible. If you are streaming to an Icecast server you will not need to enter the User field (just leave it with the default 'source').
When entering this data make sure that you don't have anyone looking over your shoulder as M3W password field does not hide the password so anyone looking at the screen will be able to read it. Some notes on the fields:
Generally the mount point will be given to you by whoever is managing the streaming server, if they haven't given you one then make one up just don't use special characters in the name. In some streaming encoders the mount point should be preceded with a forward slash (/). In M3W this is not necessary.http:// infront of the hostname or IP.
An example config my look like this:
When you are ready press ok.
