Edcast Standalone How-to Tutorial - Icecast or Shoutcast

Step 1 - Install Edcast Standalone

Download Edcast Standalone software and install it.  This is a free application that can broadcast live audio to Icecast or Shoutcast servers.  Edcast doesn’t require any other software to operate (hence the name ‘Standalone’), and is ideal for 24/7 live streaming environments such as streaming an AM/FM station over the internet.
