MixLive.ie Streaming Project
Hi, I’m Eoin, a freelance applications and web developer from the Republic of Ireland, yes I’m self thought.
I came online in 1998 and instantly got hooked on design and it has lead me on some pretty weird journeys.
I can’t sleep at night, my mind is always active, so I had to come up with new ways to feed my imagination.
MixLive.ie has been one of the most fun projects for me, the fact that people are listening gets me excited.
We spend many late nights chatting about music and design, I can’t see myself doing anything else, I love it.
I got together with a couple of my geeky friends, to create something a bit different, and this is the result.
Our love for electronic music drove us mad, we developed this idea that turned into network of live streams.
We hope to take this project further into the near future, eventually, maybe setting up a network of live streaming studios in Ireland.
When I was studying music technology and sound engineering, there were many students involved in journalism, media, broadcasting and sound related courses. But there’s not many radio stations or studios in our city, so I’m having mad ideas about introducing this project to colleges, students can come in and do their work experience, and do what they love most, broadcast their own live shows.
I think this is a great opportunity for us all to work together and build something unique, or build on what we have already created.
We own and manage all our own dedicated servers, so if anyone is thinking of setting up their own live music project, get in touch.
MixLive started as a test platform, using various streaming technologies for delivering live audio and video streams across the web.
Our first channel Ambient Lounge came online in 2010, and has since reached 1000’s of listeners world-wide, that just amazes me.
This has inspired us to continue our live streaming project, MixLive.ie was originally designed to host one or two live streams, but
has since transformed into an online portal to some of the best music streams and online radio stations you’ll find on the internet.
Our main focus for MixLive has been electronic music, while we’re always interested in hosting other music genres/styles as well.
Want to start an online station or stream your music event? we can help you to get connected with professional broadcasting tools.
In 1998 Nullsoft (Winamp) offered a free ShoutCast DNAS server you could run on your pc and stream live audio to a few listeners.
If your computer had enough ram and your dial-up could handle the excitement, it felt like you were on your way to radio heaven.
Today’s internet speeds are lightening fast, enabling us to deliver uninterrupted live streaming media to any device in any location.
The whole concept of streaming live media across the globe has fascinated me since 1990. Shoutcast and Icecast have stood the test
of time, helping millions of online broadcasters deliver live media to a global audience. Many radio stations, dj’s, performers, singers
and music venues still use the same technologies today to stream live music, talk and radio shows to their listeners across the globe.
A home setup wasn’t enough for hosting multiple live audio streams, MixLive channels are hosted on dedicated streaming servers.
We’re working on making all streams load securely behind SLL, meaning all MixLive http stream URL’s will be changing to https.
