There are several audio streaming protocols for encoding and streaming your live playlists to the internet. Live365 uses Icecast2.
Live365 uses a proprietary streaming server based on Icecast2. Streams are delivered in ICY and HLS, via secure and non-secure streaming URLs. This means that your encoder and/or automation application must be Icecast/Icecast2 compatible. Some encoders do allow for both SHOUTcast and Icecast by using multiple "slots". We suggest that you make Live365 an Icecast slot in the 1st position if this is the case.
