MuSE - stream your audio over the internet
] [-e [
] ] [
MuSE is an application for mixing, encoding, and network streaming of sound. MuSE can simultaniously mix up to 6 encoded audio bitstreams (from files or network) plus a souncard input signal. The resulting stream can be played locally on the sound card and/or encoded as an mp3 bitstream sent to a broadcast server. MuSE offers two intuitive interfaces (graphical and console) to be operated realtime and can also run in commandline mode.
MuSE is being developed in the hope to provide the Free Software community with a user friendly tool for network audio streaming, making life easier for independent free speech radios.
COMMAND LINE USAGE
Command line options in MuSE are position sensitive: all the encoder options affect the last encoder specified, all the servers are relative to the last encoding specified, all the server options affect the last server specified. In that way you can specify as much encoded streams you want and as much servers you need for each of them.
In fact MuSE can stream at multiple bitrates and to multiple servers.
