"WORKS! EASY! Can you say that about Icecast or WinAmp?"

April 23, 2013  |  By mike_mjs6161970

 |  Version: BroadWave Audio Streaming Server 1.27

Pros

WORKS! I am surprised to see the 'novice' comments on here. This software could not be more easier to configure (I could not get icecase or winamp to work at all, let alone stream audio to my website). Let me help you all out:
1. Install. (The trial version is free for 14 days)
2. Click Options, (uncheck run when computer starts, if desired)
3. Configure your compression, I used 32 for both, 16 and 8 is kinda scratchy.
To stream on the web, you will need a domain name if you do not have a static IP on the outside internet, no-ip.com is free. Novices: google this to see how to set up static IP's and port forwarding.
4. Novices and some 'Advanced users' that I have seen on here: Click the live tab and edit the default My Broadwave stream, your sound in device is what you set to stream sound from your sound card in your computer. Open your computer volume controls and select 'recording', then select the object you want the sound to stream from (microphone, line in, cd, etc).
5. Done.

Cons

It is quite pricy, but you do get a license key that is yours forever DON'T LOSE IT! They are based in Australia, but so far I have not needed any support.

Summary

Now I have had to do some research to get this to stream to different web browsers. The '.mp3' seems to work on most browsers that I have tested (Chrome, Iphone4,4s,5, IE 7,8,9,10) Remember: many mobile devices ignore 'auto play' (google this for explanation). I will share my code below that you need to put in your default document. I used port 10002 (because the my main site is on port 10000 (http://mikiecam.sytes.net:10000).
The fallback section is for web browsers that can't play mp3's. I used google's flash player (you can try others).

Press play for sound:
<audio controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay" height="32" width="320">
<source src="http://mikiecam.sytes.net:10002/broadwavelow.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" />
<!-- Fallback -->
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
flashvars="audioUrl=http://mikiecam.sytes.net:10002/broadwavelow.mp3&autoPlay=true"

"Product works, but not free"

December 14, 2012  |  By jslussser

 |  Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.25

Pros

Works great when working...

Cons

It's not free. I have the required links to their sites on my web page but they will not provide the code. In addition, it spams my streaming computer with the "buy it now" links each time the computer is rebooted, even though I'm not running the streaming software. I'm hoping I can find somewhere to effectively complain of their misleading advertisement.

Summary

I wouldn't buy this if hell froze over. They will NOT respond to e-mails and questions about the "FREE" issue.

"It has taken over my PC"

August 21, 2012  |  By Wings92126

 |  Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.21

Pros

Don't know. I want it off my PC.

Cons

Keeps popping up in unexpected places. Uninstall worked for a while, then it magically appeared again. Unintalled again and cleared out of startup. Rebooted, and then it showed up again after a while.

Summary

It's OUR computers, not Broadwave's. If you don't want go give up control over your PC don't install it.

"Been using this software for a while."

July 19, 2010  |  By shultzieWV

 |  Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.14

Pros

Very stable, easy to use. I have been using it to broadcast my online scanner for sometime now.

Cons

May not have some of the features other more expensive platforms have but it is very good for the price. Customer support is great.

Summary

I think of this software more as a utility. It does a great job of getting audio out onto the net. Keeping this in mind if you are wanting to put together an online radio station you may want more flexibility with the music library. I personally have not used this side of it much going more for live audio feeds (scanners, radios).

"This Streaming Audio Server Program Rocks be on bellief"

July 16, 2010  |  By newrockclassics

 |  Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.14

Pros

It does all the work for you, in audio files mode it streams, manually created playlists with ease and even has a loop feature for constant play. Plus one nice feature is the ability to start on contact by a listener

Cons

It would be 6 stars if it had one feature.....the ability to rearrange the audio files in a more random order without going thru the trouble of always having a playlist

Summary

Excellent product for online radio broadcasting

"nice but ehh..."

May 31, 2009  |  By djblalock

 |  Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.02

Pros

Stream live, easy to use, new-broadcaster friendly, No ads played live, set up a playlist of any music files

Cons

have to pick between pre-recorded or live, sometimes scratchy, not much features, have to purchase support, banner ad in Win. Media player

Summary

It was easy to use, but eventually I got tired of it... it will make you want to pay about 300$ for SAM Broadcaster ; )

But nice feature for first-time broadcasters that don't want to pay to broadcast!

"Spyware (wish I could give less than 1 star)"

September 25, 2007  |  By Ocvist

 |  Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.01

Cons

Installed and had a bunch of windows pop up on the screen. Closed them, went to programs. What I found there was a bunch of links (about 30) to different programs, including telephony services. There was no warning or option to opt out from the installation. Removing the software (using Add or Remove Programs) removed only the core software leaving the rest of that garbage behind and had to be deleted manually.
