|Short description=Streaming media server
|Full description=Icecast is a streaming media server based on the MP3 audio codec. It will stream MP3s to virtually anything that will play MP3s, including XMMS, mpg123, Sonique, WinAMP, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, Ultraplayer, C3, and others. It was started as a shoutcast replacement, and is almost entirely ShoutCast compatible. Icecast's advantages over Shoutcast include: it uses less cpu and memory resources, you can have several streams per server, you can use multiple directory servers, administration is simple through either telnet, console, or the WWW interface.

Icecast

https://icecast.org/
Streaming media server

Icecast is a streaming media server which currently supports WebM and Ogg streaming including the Opus, Vorbis and Theora codecs. Also Icecast can handle other streams like MP3/AAC/NSV in legacy mode, but this is not officially supported.

It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily and supports open standards for communication and interaction.

Icecast was first released in 1999 as an alternative to proprietary and patent-encumbered streaming audio technologies of the day, which included both RealAudio and Shoutcast. Later, Icecast 2 brought improved metadata support, compatibility with Shoutcast clients, and more advanced configuration options, which were features that lead to widespread adoption in the internet radio community.
