Troubleshoot: Installing Config File into Basic Broadcaster (Windows)

Post by bertie »

We have heard reports that some users are having trouble installing the config file into the basic broadcaster.

Within the next 5-7 days we intend to update the default software to include the configuration files, however until that is complete we have built a simple 'manual entry' work around.

This is also now linked from the configuration download page too.

Hi Phil, I haven't used VitualDJ myself, but i've done a quick google and seen it does have a broadcast encoder built in, so YES, you will be able to use JUST this software, and you don't need anything else. Try and find this window:

To get all the settings, check out this part of the guide: https://www.guide.reachonair.com/setup-with-encoder

I hope this helps!

So if you try and connect and it's not 30 minutes before your show, you will get a UserName & Password error. BUT if you're getting this error back, assuming your usr/pass are correct, it looks like it's connecting properly!

Yes you can use ANY Icecast encoder with Reach OnAir now. Nicecast did close support for this a long time ago but if it still opens on your Mac, it should work! :D

Hi Phil - aside from mount and password do your details match this page?
