Yes, you can use these kinds of programs only if you're a Pro user. Through our Icecast2 compatible endpoint Tube, you can use any program which supports the Icecast2 streaming protocol. Some programs do not allow Icecast2 streaming, but you can use others that support audio capturing and streaming via Icecast2 (for example, using Audio Hijack on Mac allows you to use any audio program with Spreaker).

How to create your Icecast2 mountpoint

Your mountpoint is composed by your Spreaker User ID and the Show ID of the Podcast you want your episode to belong to. The mountpoint follows this structure:

/user/USER-ID/show/SHOW-ID

So for example if your User ID is 123 and your Show ID is 456, your mountpoint will be:

/user/123/show/456

Additional mountpoint configuration

Options are added to the mountpoint using query string parameters and separated from one another using the & symbol. For example a single option looks like this:

/user/123/show/456?explicit=true

while multiple options looks like this:

/user/123/show/456?explicit=true&hidden=true

The following table list the available options.

explicit

Mark the episode as explicit

hidden

24/7 Non-Stop

Streaming 24/7 Non-Stop, available only to our a Publisher Plan, requires a slightly different configuration for the mountpoint. First of all, it needs an additional non_stop=true option to be added to the mountpoint, and a stream id to make sure in case of disconnection you can resume streaming to the same exact episode.

/user/123/show/456/stream/STREAM-ID?non_stop=true

STREAM-ID can be whatever you like (but just character and digits, no symbols or spaces), as long as it's always the same between reconnections. If it changes, a new episode will be created automatically. So, for example it can be:

/user/123/show/456/stream/VGYQH9?non_stop=true
