What is SHOUTcast?

SHOUTcast was first introduced in 1998 and has become a widely recognized cross-platform proprietary software for streaming media over the Internet. The software provides an ideal webcasting solution due to its high compatibility with various media players including Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp, QuickTime and RealPlayer. SHOUTcast was specifically designed to enable broadcasters to deliver media content from their home PC (Windows or Mac) directly to their listeners’ media player. The software is also supported by numerous mobile applications, making it possible for your audience to access your content from a wide range of devices including cellphones, tablet PCs, and other mobile devices.
