QuoteMotivationOver the years, we and many of our customers have discovered bugs or other undocumented deficiencies in both Icecast and SHOUTcast, and we wanted to build something better that fixes all these issues. We also wanted to make integration easier for streaming platforms and web developers. Lastly, we wanted to build modern streaming features that are better aligned with the needs of broadcasters in the 21st century.In the process of creating the Radio Mast Streaming Network, we used our stream monitoring to discover several stability issues and broken features in Icecast. As the old saying goes, "if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself", so we took it upon ourselves to build the Rocket Streaming Audio Server to power Radio Mast's global audio CDN, which has been rock solid ever since. We're excited to now share this great technology with the wider internet radio community.
Quote from: Kai on October 14, 2023, 08:42:25 PMNo, no...Rocket Streaming Audio Server is a modern REPLACEMENT for Icecast or Shoutcast, as already writen in the title of my post.So, you use it instead of an Icecast- or SHOUTcast-Server.Rocket Streaming Audio Server is a completely new written 64-bit Server-Software, written from scratch in C++. The only thing, that this software has in common with Icecast, is that it uses the same configuration syntax as Icecast or SHOUTcast.So, why should you use it?Here a quote out of the documentation of Rocket Streaming Audio Server:So, if you want to know, why this server-software is better than Icecast or SHOUTcast - go to their website and/or read the documentation.
