    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.

Hello,

I am new to the forum. I would like to feed data using a Raspberry Pi. I am looking at this on URL Raspberry Pi RTL-SDR Broadcastify - The RadioReference Wiki , to set this up. Everything seems pretty easy to do. But I'm not sure what I need to do with the following part.

------------------------------------

Create the following configuration file at /etc/ezstream_bcfy.xml and replace with your mount, password, and stream name. If you plan on having multiple streams make sure and create a separate named configuration file (i.e.'/etc/ezstream_bcfy2.xml) for each stream and reference accordingly in your command script below.

<ezstream>
<url>http://audio#.broadcastify.com:80/your_mount</url>
<sourcepassword>your_source_password</sourcepassword>
<format>MP3</format>
<filename>stdin</filename>
<svrinfoname>Stream Name</svrinfoname>
<svrinfourl>http://www.broadcastify.com</svrinfourl>
<svrinfogenre>Scanner</svrinfogenre>
<svrinfodescription></svrinfodescription>
<svrinfobitrate>16</svrinfobitrate>
<svrinfochannels>1</svrinfochannels>
<svrinfosamplerate>22050</svrinfosamplerate>
<svrinfopublic>0</svrinfopublic>
</ezstream>

I know how to make the file and save it. But I'm not sure what "mount" and "stream name" is. Can anyone help me with this? I would like to get one feed setup and running. Thanks.
