Everest cast is a online radio control panel featuring Liquidsoap auto dj with options of streaming to both Shoutcast and Icecast simultaneously. Upload your mp3s using the built in web based uploader or your favorite FTP program. Create and schedule playlists for your station ID and advertisements to play every X amount of tracks.
HTTPS Streams included with all Everest cast servers. Stream will play on any webpage regardless if it starts with http or https.
One of the best features of Everest cast is the ability to schedule relays.
A relay is where you redirect another SHOUTcast or Icecast stream to your stream, so your listeners hear the secondary stream. This has been possible since the birth of SHOUTcast, the difference is now you can relay mixed servers (SHOUTcast > Icecast or Icecast to SHOUTcast)!
With Everest cast you're able to run both SHOUTcast and/or Icecast, either a single instance or both at the same time from the same source (auto dj or live).
To add a stream (channel), at the bottom of your Everest cast Main Home Page, click on the Add channel button to bring up the wizzard which gives you the option of SHOUTcast v2 or Icecast and a format choice of MP3, AAC+ and FLAC. All Everest cast accounts include unlimited channels.
Everest cast includes several widgets you can embed on your website (just like you would embed a Youtube video). Currently playing, last played tracks, shoutouts, allow listeners to vote on tracks, current DJ online widget and many more.
We have a page set up with some of the widgets.
You can connect your laptop, desktop or other compatible device to your Everest cast panel seamlessly and without inturupting listeners. The automated fade from auto dj to live will take place as soon as the DJ logges in. You will first need to download and install one of many free and paid pieces of software for your Windows or MACs/Apple.
First you will need to set up at least one DJ by clicking on DJs in your Everest cast panel on the left. After you have created your DJ, you will find the details needed to go live on the right side of the DJ page.
You must have You Tube streaming enabled in your Everest cast panel in order to use this feature. Important note! You Tube is very strict with copyrights and will automatically and very quickly flag any content their system detects as so (most all popular songs today)
(1) Goto the You Tube Live Streaming Dashboard and login.
(2) Once inside the You Tube Streaming Dashboard, goto the very bottom and look for the Encoder Setup.
Everest cast allows you to enter your Tune In Radio API Credentials which will list the currently playing track in the Tune In Directory (great way to gain more listeners), and also use it to create a station playlist.
You will need to contact Tune In at address firstname.lastname@example.org, provide them with your station ID and ask for your Partner ID and Partner key. (free)
