What do I need to stream with ShoutCast and or IceCast?

In order to succesfully broadcast you need only a few simple things. First is a computer that has Windows, Mac, or a Linux operating system installed. Second is a broadband connection. It is required you have a broadband connection to stream properly without any lag or buffering issues.

If you plan on taking your streaming to the next level you could get yourself a mixer and a microphone to add some style and uniqueness to your broadcasts. It would not hurt to have 2 computers if you are going this route. 1 that would handle the music and voice part of the stream and 1 that would handle commercials and sound bytes and such.

I would also check out the products over at Spacial.com such as SAM Broadcaster and SAM Vibe.
