    Hello,

    I have been making a shoutcast addon for whm.

    Ive coded what i think is needed and i need other peoples suggestions in what it should do.
    Its coded in perl and works with WHM fine.

    Currently it will install shoutcast to /home/user/shoutcast/
    Then it will allow you to edit the config file.
    When you click save it will start the shoutcast with the settings u entered.
    Everytime you make a new config it will start on save using the same shoutcast file. eg ./sc_serv sc_serv.conf.varable

    This works for resellers & root.

    Its in its alpha stage at the moment and i am looking for suggestions to add to it.

    I will release a beta after i get some suggestions and modify it a little more.

    Currently it does:
    Install to /home/user or /root if root
    Allows you to edit Config
    Starts the Shoutcast from the edited config.
    Allows Multiple configs and starts them with the one shoucast exec.
    Allows Resellers to Install shoutcast and run it without Ssh Access.
    ---------------
    Note more features will be added.

    ETA on a beta will be in a few days.

    A nice feature would be to have support for sc_trans, this would then give the broadcaster more control over on-demand* content.

    http://www.shoutcast.com/download/broadcast.phtml#posixdownload

    sc_trans works the same way as sc_serv in terms on configuration, and does not have a big impact on the server load when running multiples of itself. With sc_trans the broadcaster can create a custom playlist which can stream mp3s to the sc_serv for broadcasting.

    *In true sense, sc_trans does not provide on-demand content, the listener cannot select what they want to listen to, but only can listen to what sc_trans is playing and streaming to sc_serv. This does however remove the need for the broadcaster to install any mod or software on their computer, and also eliminate the need for their machine to be on and streaming 24/7.

    A good use for sc_trans would be when the broadcaster turns the radio to night mode (or something like that), where the server takes over the stream and plays until the broadcaster takes control again. (if that makes sense)
