This is so easy to set up and broadcast. I loaded the app, selected iTunes as the source, added the apps ip number to my router as a hosted app and I am on the air. The sound quality on the other end is excellent as confirmed by listeners. Plenty of effects and features to mess with. More importantly than any other point is I set this up and I am having fun.

Whenever I try and get the sound from either Traktor Pro 2 directly or from my sound card, nicecast crashes. I can get it to send system audio but that is not very usable.

All that I would need would be Icecast, which for whatever obscure reason haven't been compiled to my limited knowledge for OS X in the last 14 years. Traktor Pro 2 can already broadcast to ice cast servers. I wish I knew a good way to get an icecast service on my Mac.

Even if Nicecast contains a nicecast server within the app, this is not useful as it can't take ice cast clients, like Traktor Pro2. At least I don't see how you could do send the stream to it. A big omission.

Why does the requirements say 64 bit? The application is only 32 bit. LOL

Excellent piece of software, I use it to capture my system audio and send to my media player. That way I can play Spotify, Youtube, etc. on my stereo system.

Wish it had a nicer icon though :)

The changes state "now fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.6." I jut tried running it under 10.4 (Tiger) Server and it said Nicecast can't run on this version of Mac OS X.

I had to go to the developer's web site to find out Nicecast is now 10.5 and above ONLY.

My Comment in a nutshell, as a paid owner and longtime Nicecast user, is I think that stinks.

Did your old version stop working? I think not.
The oldest OS X version anyone reasonably could use today is 10.5.8 and that's a stretch. I just got my first Intel and have been using 10.5.8 since it came out on 400mhz powerbook Titaniums as well as the G5.

What's stopping you from running Leopard anyway? It can be had for a few dollars and runs on all macs since 2000 with a little help in some cases (xpostfacto).

Leopard is FASTER on older hardware. I've been running it for years so I'd think I'd know.

Someone pointed out that customer service is so lousy the developer in addition to responding to support emails with rudeness if at all also publishes your support emails on his blog to make fun of how dumb you are. Well, I did some looking and guess what...


So tell me, is THAT worth $40 to you?

It ain't to me.

Did you even read the mails? Sounds like they were written in a crack high they make no damn sense.

If you can find a serious support question that he is making fun of then I would be worried.

"Soundflower 1.3 isn't even available from the official Cycling '74 website yet...?"

Not that I can find. Looked everywhere. Very puzzling.

"Now includes Soundflower 1.3 update for capturing System Audio, now featuring volume controls"

Soundflower 1.3 isn't even available from the official Cycling '74 website yet...?

this program sucks big time, it is highly unstable. i paid for it and have been trying to use it to run a radio station for the past 3 months. what you will encounter after you leave it running for awhile, is what they call "audio skipping" basically the encoder screws up, so you have to restart the software. this week i've had to restart the software 5 times to get the station back so people can connect, which has done serious damage to my station's reputation. i just can't believe they would put such an unstable build on the market, but i guess people's greed comes first in today's market/world. it's really easy to use, but they need to work out a bunch of problems before it can be relied on. i'm using version 1.8.9

The encoder usually skips when your CPU load is too high, or when the CPU is not fast enough to encode in real-time. Is your Mac fast enough to keep up with the encoding?
