Installing Ezstream

Ezstream is an Icecast 2 client. It allows for auto dj streaming using a playlist. There is a directory with audio and a text playlist. This playlist is loaded and plays one file after another and encodes and loads it into the Icecast server for live streaming out over the internet.

There is a simple xml config file for various settings. These install command lines may need to be tweaked for specific OS.

I’ve got a few EzStream clients running on various VPS and both EzStream and Icecast are pretty bulletproof once you get them up and running and configured correctly.
