How to Pick a Radio Host

How to ensure you don't get ripped off by a streaming host. Its important you know who you're dealing with when doing business online. SHOUTcast Reviews and Stream Host Reviews don't always help and can easily be faked. Ensure that the company behind a radio streaming website is legitimate before signing up with them.

Is SHOUTcast right for me?

SHOUTcast is right for you, If you need a solution to broadcast live internet radio it can easily be integrated onto any existing website. You can broadcast as little or as much as you like, you can also have DJs connect to broadcast from multiple locations if you wish.

What is bitrate (Eg 128kbps)?

Bitrate refers to the quality of the stream. The industry standard is 128kbps which is a high 'CD stereo' quality stream. 64kbps is more like FM radio and 32kbps is more like telephone quality. If you're playing music, we recommend 128k - but for voice only, 64k. Lower quality streams at 32k are more useful if you expect a lot of listeners with poor quality internet, such as dialup or 3G (mobile).
