We thought it might be fun to create a new channel where members could run their own live shows.
If your music software has an encoder that connects to a Shoutcast v2 server, you’re ready to stream.
Each broadcaster gets a dj account and login details for connecting to our Shoutcast streaming server.
Broadcasters can submit their live event and manage their own live events from the events dashboard
First you will need to join our MixLive Discord server where we’ll discuss your new radio show details.
We’ll then setup a broadcaster page for you, you need to give us some details about your radio show.
You can choose a one hour time-slot from our Open Stage radio schedule, shows are in GMT timezone.
Then you can access the events dashboard, where you’ll be able to create and edit you live events.
You can send any updates for your broadcaster page and radio show directly on our Discord server.
Check our Shoutcast guides below for helpful info on configuring different music software encoders.
Once your encoder is connected, you can check your live stream by visiting Open-Stage radio page.
MixLive staff will go over the setup with you on our Discord and get you connected to our server.

Quick Guides – Configure your music software encoder and connect to a Shoutcast version 2 streaming server
Some of these programs have paid versions, like Sam and VirtualDJ, the others are free but well worth checking.
If you only need an encoder to listen to your soundcard (external equipment) nicecast, edcast, Winamp will work.
We’re using Automated playlists, when a live broadcaster starts streaming, the Auto-DJ will fade out automatically.
When a live broadcaster stops streaming, Auto-DJ will fade back in, so there’s no dead air between dj changeovers.
You are free to use the stream whenever you like, unless another show is scheduled for that time, check the dj schedule first.
You can pick any free slot from the dj schedule, hover over Open Stage in the top menu and select Open Stage Radio Shows.
