So i was out of town last night and we lost power early this morning. I got home a little while ago and restarted all my servers and the Rasberry. I can now ping the Pi but i still show feed down. Is there any way to listen to the feed locally on another PC like with scannercast in windows ? I dont know whats going on as this has been running 2 years flawlessly. Normally when i loose internet it comes right back up. Today its been down for about 12 hours.

Does the feed not show as up unless its on for a certain amount of time ?

So after doing alot of reading on other posts I dug out a mini keyboard and logged into the Pi and ran the command to start darkice again. It must of worked as when i was digging for more info I go thte text on my phone saying my feed was back up.

So my other question still stands. On my other feed running on windows I can open media player and connect to the IP of the PC and port and hear my feed. Does the Pi allow this somehow ?

Yes, if you install an ice cast server on the pi, stream to both icecast and bcfy.

The following post isn't exactly a step by step but gives the dirctions in general.

You already have darkice installed so you can skip down to the configuration part that starts "this section describes a streaming connection to an IceCast2 server"

Your configuration file should be at /etc/darkice.cfg, just add an icecast2-1 section. When you install icecast in the following paragraphs you will set the source password that the .cfg needs.

Good luck. If you run into issues, ask.

It showed it running. I actually have tried it a few times since. The program will show darkice as started but does not work. If i retype command it starts working. Not sure why.

At one point in the past, I had it somewhere in a boot script to 'sudo service darkice stop', pause 5 seconds then 'sudo service darkice start'

Of course, I borked the SD card and had to rebuild the Pi and now can't find where I put that command...
