When I comment out the RR section of my DarkIce config, it connects to my IceCast server without problems.

When I uncomment the RR section so that it will start streaming to RR, DarkIce bombs out.

Just to be sure, I commented out my own IceCast config to make sure they were not conflicting...it still wouldn't connect to RRs audio server.

Here is my config:

[icecast2-2]
bitrateMode = vbr
format = mp3
quality = 0.1
channel = 1
lowpass = 5000
server = audio3.radioreference.com
port = 80
password = FORMYEYESONLY
mountPoint = /48924277
name = Durham County Public Safety
description = (including local Medevac and Media Helos)
genre = Scanner
public = yes

try
bitrateMode=abr
bitrate=16

I can never get LAME mp3s to work right with vbr, but it could just be my hardware.

this is my darkice config for one of my feeds

Code:
[icecast2-0]
bitrateMode     = cbr       # average bit rate
format          = mp3       # format of the stream: ogg vorbis
sampleRate      = 22050
bitrate         = 16        # bitrate of the stream sent to the server
quality         = 0.8
server          = audio3.radioreference.com
                            # host name of the server
port            = 80      # port of the IceCast2 server, usually 8000
password        = ############  # source password to the IceCast2 server
mountPoint      = ########### # mount point of this stream on the IceCast2 server
name            = Comal, Wilson, Guadalupe, Atascosa, Bandera County Public Safety
                            # name of the stream
description     = Comal, Wilson, Guadalupe, Atascosa, Bandera County Public Safety
                            # description of the stream
url             = http://www.radioreference.com
                            # URL related to the stream

I fixed it...

It was a couple of things, and it appears that you have to configure your channels JUST right to stream to multiple servers.

Now I'm streaming to my own icecast server for my personal use and to RR's server for general use.

Thanks for the help guys!

Durham, NC Public Safety Feed is now only! Woo Hoo!
