Default IceCast streaming via ReaCast plugin

The ReaCast plugin has been a hugely useful tool for us with our broadcast platform, as it's enabled shows around the world to be able to easily broadcast mixes, with VST processing, by just using one programme - Reaper!

We've just moved radio service provider, and their associated streaming server is IceCast rather than SHOUTCast. The ReaCast plugin explicitly states that it serves to SHOUTCast, and despite searching for solutions on this forum and elsewhere I can find no way to add the additional information needed for IceCast streams (e.g. username, mountpoint etc).

Seeing as IceCast is open source (as opposed to ShoutCAST), do you think there's any way that IceCast could be added to the ReaCast plugin?

Current streaming apps are nowhere near as stable and adaptable as using Reaper, so it would be a fantastic addition, particularly during these streaming-focussed covid19 times!

I got it running. Wanted to use it to stream my mix to a client but latency is to high to work with him on the mix in realtime. Any improvement suggestions?

Thanks for posting, I had watched these links before but I'm not sure they're the same as our use case.

We're using Airtime Pro's service as our radio host, which streams via IceCast. From the details we have they don't seem to match with what the person in the videos is describing.

The details we have to connect look something like:

Username: MyUsername
Password: *****
Host: radioexample.in.airtime.pro
Port: 8001
Mountpoint: /radioexample_show

I haven't been able to find a configuration of those details that would allow broadcasting via ReaCast, but I'd love to be proved wrong!

I'll take a look and see what's required for ReaCast to work with icecast (I don't think it was ever specifically targeted previously)

Thanks! The problem with icecast ist latency. Would be so cool to have some kind of webRTC plugin so we can deliver our mixing sessions to the client in "realtime" to work on it together. Ideally with mp3 to wav quality depending on on the available bandwidth.

How did you get on, does it seem that it might be possible?

Hey, I'd just like to add my voice to this and say it'd be excellent to have ReaCast with the option for IceCast. I think a lot of broadcasters using IceCast would enjoy having the flexibility of Reaper involved in their encoder.

Just checking in as to the possible inclusion of IceCast support with the incredible ReaCast plugin! Do let us know if this can be a feature in future updates; love all your work!

+1 would be helpful for my radioshow, especially during pandemic, where broadcasting directly in their studios is impossible due restrictions, only via remote.

I registered just for this. An Icecast plugin would be great. Any updates on this?
