Broadcasting through a third-party server or stream hosting solution: Using Winamp with the SHOUTcast Radio DSP Plug-in

If you would like to start your own internet radio station without the hassle of running your own server this is the solution for you. You can host your radio broadcast through a willing third party that will handle the actual streaming for you, leaving you to only worry about what you want to play on your internet radio station! You can search the Internet for the streaming host solution that fits you needs and your budget. You can get more information about what type of streaming host solution is right for you on the SHOUTcast forums.

Once you have a streaming host in place, you can use the Winamp media player along with the SHOUTcast DSP plug-in to start broadcasting.
