BUTT "Broadcast Using This Tool"

Important: Please ensure that you have the latest version of BUTT installed, as versions below 0.1.16 don't work with the latest version of Shoutcast.

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 Edcast is that the MP3 encoder is included in the installation package so there are no extra downloads.

1) Download from http://danielnoethen.de/ and install. Open the program.

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

4) Back on the 'butt settings' window, click on the Audio tab. This will open your Encoder Settings where you specify the input, format and bitrate of your stream.

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