all you need is a computer that has web server software on it. I use a

mac so it would be easier to explain it on that but it shoudl also

easily work on a pc. I have some html with a small script that allows

your browser to listen to the audio stream that I can send over.


basically you need to launch nicecast and have it playing something.

People can listen to it if they have a program that plays playlists

easily. Iphones which have quicktime do this well. But it is more

accessible if you can use your browser which is what the html is for.


macs have a built in server or you can use MAMP. .

start up the router and join the network with the computer running

nicecast and the server . Now people just have to join the network also

and then go to yourcomputer.local or another address that can be

specified. I can walk you through this better but that's the basics.


I also have a router that can be plugged in and also has an adapter for

running on D batteries. That can get to you soon if needed.


I can help guide you but wont be available in person til tuesday.
