• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Broadcastify Streaming with RaspberryPi Raspbian Stretch

    Has anyone been able to setup Darkice to stream scanner audio on the latest Raspbian version 9 (Stretch)? As I understand, Darkice does not need to be compiled as it already natively supports mp3 encoding. Any help is appreciated.

    Raspberri Pi Streaming issues

    So almost at my wits end here and about to the throw in the towel and admit defeat. I have been running a PI 3 for the last few month fine with darkice. Only real issue I had at first was that the only way I could get it to stream was after the pi was booted I had to open up a web page and then...

    Raspberry Pi using Darkice bitrate inconsistency

    I am broadcasting a scanner feed using a raspi2 with darkice. In my darkice.cfg I specify using a constant bitrate of 16kbps on 1 channel (mono), but my feed is listed as 32kbps on the broadcastify website. There really isn't anything complicated about this setup, what am I missing here? Thanks

    Nothing but static (pops and clicks), using darkice

    I think I'm close here, I can get the feed to go online, and I'm not getting any error messages, but I am getting pops and clicks of static and nothing else. Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong here? I'm including my darkice configuration file. The stream is located at Kingston Peninsula...

    Linux, Darkice, Alsa, plughw and sample rates

    I'm currently having some trouble getting darkice to play nicely with this sound card. I've figured out that this sound card will only open capture at 48000. If I stream at 48000 it sounds great, but the specs for Radioreference call for 22050kHz. Streaming at 22050 is impossible using...

    "PlugComputers" (ie SheevaPlug) as Streaming Audio Server

    I tried searching for this, because I thought someone must have done it before, but alas no luck. In looking to reduce total space required to operate a computer that does nothing but stream audio to the RR servers, I remembered the SheevaPlug that was announced a ways back. While some people...

    Frequently offline

    I am experiencing a problem where the feed is going offline often. This is a new installation of a feed, and, haven't had consistent operation with this feed yet. The source is an Ubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS server using darkice 0.19. It will not stay online for more that about 80 minutes before RR...
