How to set up BUTT

Last Updated: Dec 19, 2013 04:39PM EET
Butt is a simple IceCast v1/ShoutCast v1 compatible tool that takes one audio stream of your soundcard and relays it directly to the server. When properly set up all you have to do is run Butt then just play the music in an audio player or speak into your microphone without needing any extra interaction with the streaming software.

This is butt's main window. Click on "Settings".

This is the window that will appear. 

Firstly, click on the Audio Device combo box and select the source of sound that you will use.
Then, you have to set up the server infos. Click the "ADD" button under the section "Server".

To find the required information go to the homepage of your account in Radiojar some time before your show.

In the yellow box, under the "Broadcast link", there is all the information you need.
(In the same way you can use the Broadcast link of your station, if you are an administrator.)

So, you have to fill in the blanks with this information.

The first thing you should do is to select IceCast.
In the section "Name" you can write whatever you want.
In the section "Address" you have to write the IP address which is at "HOST" of your Broadcast link.
Do the same for "Port", "Password" and "Mountpoint" .
Finally click "ADD".
Now, select the server you just added.

Next, go to stream settings.

In the section "Channel" select "stereo".
In the section "Codec" select "ogg".
We recommend you to choose a Bitrate of 96k as it is a good quality.

Save the changes you have done.

Go again to the main window of butt.
To start streaming click the play button. You should see this:
