Daveo Radio is just a little place I can share some music and chat with friends. It's only on when I'm listening, but I enjoy listening to music and I spend quite a bit of time doing so. I like to tune into terrestrial stations that stream to help find new music, but I’ve found almost all of the robot mixes from the big streaming providers unsatisfying. For the last couple years, I've been scanning all kinds of discovery mechanisms and making a new mix every month. I'd like to teach others how to setup a basic microphone and board to broacast to these streaming servers so that I can have a variety of playlist and my friends can also host live shows I can listen to. I'd like to thank Radio Paradise for the original motivation to setup my own servers. It's taken me some time to learn the ropes of building out the servers, but right now I've got two servers running from Los Angeles and Atlanta. It wouldn't be possible without the work of numerous others who have built the software to power this page.
Xiph.org: A non-profit corporation dedicated to protecting the foundations of Internet multimedia from control by private interests.
Icecast-kh: A branch of Icecast more suited for large scale installations.
Because it is built on Open Source Technologies, there are others too.
Audio Streaming: There are a number of ways you can listen to the audio stream. This page uses the HTML5 audio element to stream it to your computer or phone. You can also point your favorite media player to the stream at http://stream.davidawindham.com/.
Video Stream: Older web browers will not support all of the features here. In order to use the video and call capabilities of this page, you'll need to use a modern web browser
The cost associated with running the servers and the licensing to broadcast music are just about $1500 dollars a year. As the audience grows, so does the cost. Royalties are based on the number of listener hours and I add new relay servers to scale to keep the audio quality up and reduce lag time. If you would like to help support this effort, I've set up some easy ways to do so:
