It seems many people still use Winamp to listen to the stream.
Two weeks ago, my radio software SAM Broadcaster began to create unaccaptable bad sound and I wasn't able to solve it. So I looked for an alternative and found a nice freeware: RadioDJ. Because the AltaCast plugin didn't work with the AAC+ encoder, I needed to connect RadioDJ to the stand-alone version of AltaCast via a virtual audio cable (VB-Audio). Getting it running was a rather painful experience.
But I got complaints from Winamp users being not able to listen to the stream anymore. So I requested some technical support to get SAM Broadcaster running again. This is how it looks, btw., a user interface style from 20 years ago:
I think, I will switch to a Linux server somewhere in the far future and use Opus instead of AAC+. Hopefully more people have abandoned Winamp by then. But maybe bandwidth will be cheap enough to provide a mp3 stream for nostalgic reasons. :-p
It's the 1st of December and many organizations put their hat on the data highway and beat the drums to collect donatins.
A special case this year is the San Francisco based Internet Archive that wants to make a backup of its collection in Canada -- maybe to escape the reach of a Trumpian administration.
Since many years now, before soundcloud or even MySpace existed, I always found some pearls when I delved into the audio library. It seems to be the best place to carve something in stone on the internet. So if you have some bugs left in your pocket and you are thinking about donating it for some good cause, consider good old archive.org.
