Icecase LogoPart 1 of this series shows, how you can use the IceCast uplink client integrated in Traktor on Windows. As server the free IceCase 2 server is used.

IceCast Setup

In this configuration the IceCast uplink integrated in Traktor will act as sender. The sender send the audio stream to the IceCast server which is running on the same computer. The listeners connect to this IceCast server, who streams and distributes your mix.

This setup works well if there are only several listeners connected to the IceCast server and if your internet connection provides a high upstream rate. A disadvantage can be, that the Traktor broadcaster can stream in OGG format only, but not in MP3 format.
