BUTT "Broadcast Using This Tool"

### Compatibility: SHOUTcast V1.x, SHOUTcast V2.x, Icecast V2.x ###

Important: Versions below 0.1.16 don't work with the latest version of Shoutcast so please update using the link below.

BUTT (Broadcast Using This Tool) is a very simple program for basic streaming needs. You can't stream your MP3 collection like with other programs, but it is perfect for those of you that get audio from an external source such as decks/mixer or a microphone.

The advantage of BUTT over Altacast is that the MP3 encoder is included in the installation package so there are no extra downloads.

1) Download the file below, open the installer and follow the instrutions. Open the program.

Windows: https://danielnoethen.de/butt/release/0.1.25/butt-0.1.25-setup.exe

Mac OSX: https://danielnoethen.de/butt/release/0.1.25/butt-0.1.25.dmg

Linux Source: https://danielnoethen.de/butt/release/0.1.25/butt-0.1.25.tar.gz

Windows (Portable): https://danielnoethen.de/butt/release/0.1.25/butt-0.1.25_Win64_No_Installer.zip (can be installed on a USB drive)

2) Click on the Settings button to open a new Settings window. Click the ADD button under the Server section. Enter your server settings as below. Click ADD once complete:

Note: Your address, port, password and mountpoint (Icecast only) are provided inside the control panel - please log in to get these.

Icecast users: If you use Icecast then you will need to add a Mount (unless you use SHOUTcast mode). This is normally /stream or if you're using AutoDJ Switching Mode then it will be /live - You can enter an alternative Mountpoint but the HTML players that we provide may not work.

Note: Ensure that you select the correct Audio Device for your setup, this will usually be either Default Device or Microphone.
