I recently got asked about systems that allow streaming audio (music
specifically) from a linux server. I've previously set up the RealMedia
software, and it worked ok. I was using it for video streaming at the
time. I was wondering what people's experiences have been with free
streaming servers on linux? I guess it could also be a commercial
product, but I'd prefer something free.
Shoutcast looks promising (thought not Free free). Will windows and mac
clients need anything special to listen to the streams from such servers?
