upstream is a simple command-line utility for streaming audio to a Shoutcast/Icecast server.


Build and install

upstream depends on libshout and taglib. Assuming those are installed, build the upstream binary by typing make. To install, copy the upstream binary to your personal bin directory.


Stream a bunch of MP3 files:

$ upstream --host *.mp3

Stream OGG files from standard input:

$ cat *.ogg | upstream --ogg -
