Ices is the mp3 version of the command line streamer from Icecast.org. It’s like sc_trans for shoutcast, but alot better. Because of the mp3 stuff, it’s not distributed as a .deb anywhere (if anyone does find a .deb, please let me know), so it has to be built from source.
It’s all relatively straightforward though:
- First install the Mediabuntu repository.
wget -q http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/medibuntu-key.gpg -O - | sudo apt-key add - sudo wget http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/sources.list.d/feisty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -y upgrade
- Next install some headers (we need these to be able to build it) …
sudo aptitude install libshout3-dev liblame-dev libxml-dev
- (Optional) Perl support in ices is useful, for this we’ll need libperl-dev
sudo aptitude install libperl-dev
- Download and build the source …
wget http://downloads.us.xiph.org/releases/ices/ices-0.4.tar.gz tar -zxf ices-0.4.tar.gz cd ices-0.4 ./configure --with-lame make sudo make install
