• 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:

    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

    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...

    Using Python to Update Icecast Scanner Audio Feeds with a Raspberry Pi

    Quite a few people have been using a Raspberry Pi to feed audio to Icecast and RR using Darkice. I wanted to go one step further and make it so both the audio and scanner metadata (alpha tags) could both be fed from the Raspberry Pi.
