"WORKS! EASY! Can you say that about Icecast or WinAmp?"
Version: BroadWave Streaming Audio Server 1.27
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).
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.
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:
