Website/Domain Integration

Integration with your web site

You can integrate your SHOUTcast server with your current web site so that visitors to your web site can listen to your radio. There are several different ways of doing this, some of which are explained here.

In all of these examples, replace 69.175.39.146:8500 with your SHOUTcast IP address and port number, shown on your Centova Cast control panel.


Windows Media Player integration

This displays a Windows Media Player bar on your site. The radio station plays in the media player bar. Simply copy the HTML code below, edit the "URL" section appropriately and paste it into your web page. The "Value" setting of the URL should be the "SHOUTcast URL" shown on the Centova Cast SHOUTcast control panel page.

<object id="MediaPlayer" type="application/x-oleobject" height="36"
         standby="Please Wait..." width="148"
         classid="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6">

    <param name="enableErrordialogs" value="0">
    <param name="_cx" value="3916">
    <param name="_cy" value="953">
</object>

RealPlayer integration

This displays a RealPlayer bar on your site. The radio station plays in the RealPlayer. Simply copy the HTML code below, edit the "URL" section appropriately and paste it into your web page. The "Value" setting of the SRC should be the "SHOUTcast URL" shown on the Centova Cast SHOUTcast control panel page.

<object id="RealPlayer" height=99 width=378
         classid="CLSID:CFCDAA03-8BE4-11cf-B84B-0020AFBBCCFA">
    <param name="SRC" value="http://69.175.39.146:8500">
    <param name="controls" VALUE="ControlPanel,InfoVolumePanel">
    <param name="console" VALUE="Clip1">

    <embed type="audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin" console="Clip1"

           width=275 autostart=false>
</object>

Adding a WinAmp "Listen" link

You can add a WinAmp "Listen" link to your site. Visitors can click on this link to listen to your radio broadcasts. To do this, create a link on your web page with the target the same as your SHOUTcast URL appended with "/listen.pls". It should end up being someting like "http://69.175.39.146:8500/listen.pls".

Example HTML:

<A HREF="http://69.175.39.146:8500/listen.pls">Listen Using WinAmp</A>

Remember to replace the URL with the one shown on your Centova Cast control panel.
Adding a RealPlayer "Listen" link

You can add a RealPlayer "Listen Using RealPlayer" link to your site. Visitors can click on this link to listen to your radio broadcasts via RealPlayer. They must have RealPlayer installed for this to work. To do this, firstly create a text file called "listen.ram". This file must have the following line (replace with your SHOUTcast server IP address and port number):

http://69.175.39.146:8500/listen.pls

Upload this file into your public_html folder on your web site. Now create an HTML link to this using the code below:

<A HREF="/listen.ram">Listen Using RealPlayer</A>

Remember to replace the URL in the listen.ram file with the one shown on your Centova Cast control panel.

"On Demand" Streaming

Instead of the normal broadcast mode, SHOUTcast can operate in "On Demand" mode. In this mode, mp3 files are streamed to a listener when they connect to the server using a special URL.

To use this mode, use the Centova Cast "File Manager" to upload an mp3 file (for example "mymusic.mp3"). Then create a link on your web site to the following URL:

http://69.175.39.146:8500/content/mymusic.pls

Your HTML code should look like this:

<A HREF="http://69.175.39.146:8500/content/mymusic.pls">Listen To MyMusic</A>

Once again, replace the URL shown above with the one shown on your Centova Cast control panel.
