Free SHOUTcast Flash Player

Follow these easy steps to get a free shoutcast flash player.  The player uses JWplayer technology and works with our services and is free to use with other shoutcast hosting providers.

Simply take the code below and paste it into your website html where you would like the player to be displayed.  Once you paste the code change the servernetwork:port to your server network name or IP and the port you are using e.g. (lime.citrus3.com:8000) :

<div id=”container”><a href=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer”>Get the Flash Player</a> to see this player.
<a href=”http://www.citrus3.com”>Powered by Citrus 3</a></div>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.citrus3.com/swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
var s1 = new SWFObject(“http://www.citrus3.com/player.swf”,
“ply”,”200″,”20″,”9″,”#FFFFFF”);
s1.addParam(“allowfullscreen”,”true”);
s1.addParam(“allowscriptaccess”,”always”);
s1.addParam(“flashvars”,
“file=http://servernetwork:port/;stream.nsv&type=mp3&volume=50&am…);
s1.write(“container”);

</script>

By default the player is set to autoplay so your stream will simply play when the page loads.

The player has start and stop features and a volume control.

How to create an authhash for shoutcast v2 servers

The auth hash is a file located in the server dnas which tells the shoutcast directory that you want to make your station public on their directory.  It also includes your stream info such as radio station name, url of your radio station website, and the genre of your broadcast.  If you don’t have an auth hash and you attempt to broadcast as “public” set in your encoder your stream will fail and you will not be able to listen via a media player until you switch back to “private” (or create the auth hash)

To create the authhash you will first need to start broadcasting, switch on your live encoder or your auto DJ,  BS make sure your shoutcast server is running. Simply login to your server dnas.  To login to your dnas use your server IP and port.  If your server is lemon.cirus3.com and the port 8000 then you would visit http://lemon.citrus3.com:8000/admin.cgi (make sure you go to admin.cgi WITHOUT ANYTHING after .CGI) and login using admin as your username and the “administration” password provided in the control panel.  Once logged in simply click create authhash and fill in your station details.

You can now start your encoders and continue streaming public with your station being listed.
