Streamer is a stand-alone stream encoder application for Windows. This is designed to take the audio from the soundcard, optionally pass it through a software compressor/limiter, and encode the audio to a stream in various/multiple formats for broadcasting on the internet.
This software does not produce or play any audio. StationPlaylist Creator and StationPlaylist Studio is designed for that purpose.
StationPlaylist Studio contains a stream encoder module but this is not suitable when using a mixing console. Streamer is required to record the audio output from the mixer and encode it to a stream.
Streamer is also required when using 3rd party automation or media player software.
Stream encoding can be taxing on the CPU, and Streamer enables encoding on a separate PC away from the automation software.
Streamer encodes the audio to a stream and sends it to a stream server for distribution to your listeners. We offer stream hosting, or you can use any other stream hosting company with Streamer.
