8.6. Start your own MP3 radio station

SHOUTcast is the most popular software used for streaming MP3 to the world. (MP3 streams are not saved on the user's hard drive but are listened to as they're downloaded.) SHOUTcast comes from Nullsoft, creators of the Winamp MP3 player. Much as HTML editors made it possible for anyone to publish text and graphics on the Web, the SHOUTcast application and server (shown in Figure 8-14) makes it possible for the masses to broadcast audio over the Internet with a minimum amount of hardware and knowledge (although a good bit of bandwidth definitely helps).

Figure 8-14. The SHOUTcast DSP plug-in for Winamp lets you redirect MP3 streams to server software for Internet distribution.
