hi guys, i have recently moved to Broadwave for my audio streaming, i have everything all setup and running smoothly, the only issues i have are these;

1. is it possible to have my own personal stream name used for the .asx .m3u etc files that are used to stream to the player of choice? i would like listeners to be able to have the option to save the file and not have to rename it.

2. is it possible to have a link named as desired also, so for example, instead of having "http://12.345.678.91...u?src=1&rate=1" could i have http://mystream.com/broadwave.m3u etc??

my next question is this

where do i add the link on my website to allow me to use the software for free?? my site is in the testing stages and is currently up and down but will become fully active pretty soon. in the meantime i would like to ad the links to my site and the nch logo to my footer. do i need to add the link to my html code, or can i add it as a linked image?

help is appreciated, thanks.

Hi

Some quick answers,

1: Don't know, I don't think so.  See below for an alternative handy name.

2: Yes, if you leave off the parameters it assumes the default live stream number 1 and the default bitrate. 56 or 64 whatever you configured.
In fact, I append a handy reference name to the end of my string, which broadwave ignores, but allows me to see quickly which stream it is:
http etc broadwave.mp3?id=myname
Broadwave ignores the id, and myname is my handy tag to remind me which stream it is. Change that to whatever you want.

3: Sorry, can't answer that as my streams are not accessible from a website, but only for private streaming.

Hi,

Just put ?id= and anything at all at the end of the URL string.

For example (I've put spaces in so these are not real links)

http:// mywebsite.com:2000 / broadwave.mp3?id=liveoutput
http:// mywebsite.com:2001 / broadwave.mp3?id=studio1
http:// mywebsite.com:2002 / broadwave.mp3?id=studio2

and so on, with your own website name or IP address and port number.
