What's New
Version 1.10.9:
  • Nicecast now has initial compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
  • The audio capture engine has been completely overhauled. Audio capture from some sources may behave differently than it did previously. Please adjusted the revised "Advanced" settings as needed, and contact us with feedback.
  • The Instant On component has been updated to version 7.1.2, with full support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. This update provides improvements to System Audio capture and audio capture from Safari.
  • Nicecast now requires OS X 10.7 Lion or later.
  • The License window has been overhauled, with HTML. Neat!
  • The app now has a hidden "Check for News" option, accessible by pressing option while in the Fission menu.
  • Sometimes, track titles weren't properly sent to Shoutcast servers, based on the administrator password for that server (!). We've fixed that crazy bug.
  • An issue where track durations pulled from iTunes might be incorrect, affecting Live365 users, has also been fixed.
  • The preference for installing updates automatically is now on by default. The user is shown this the first time, however, and has a chance to turn it off.

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

The updated Instant On component in this version is incompatible with 10.7...

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.

Hi,

I don't mean any spam at all by posting the following. I have written a program called Naiocast that works along with Nicecast and lets you broadcast even if your are behind many Routers and Proxies or if you have a Firewall Active.

Naiocast work on a classic web hosting running Apache as server and needs Perl installed both on your Macintosh and your web host (Mac OS X comes with Perl installed by the way).

Naiocast grabs the stream from Nicecast's built-in Icecast and sends it to your web host to broadcast to listeners.

Consider that your computer's upload bandwidth may not match your expectation to broadcast to 10+ users at 128kbps, a normal server web running Naiocast can!

Also, Naiocast supports song titles.

Naiocast is free software licensed under GPL.

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.

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?

This is an excellent piece of software and one of the best customer service departments I have dealt with, especially for an online company. The emails were from a real person, they were quick, concise and to the point and actually helpful, unlike many other companies on the web and on the phone.

I will definitely be looking at what else Rogue Amoeba have to offer after what i've seen from them so far

Selekta had trouble on 27 Mar 2004
Hi

I too got it to work first time once I had bought a decent ethernet modem/router.

But on the other hand I used a USB DSL modem before (bundled with Tiscali broadband) and the broadcast fell over itself - like 20 minutes of audio in 10 secs! I originally thought it may be my hard drive being too slow or the fact its running off an iMac 233, but they are both ruled out now with the new modem. All that leaves is for me to DJ on my favourite radio staion on Monday!! Only thing is I can use up to 256kb and they only want 64 :)
