Hamara Forums Radio

As most of you all know that HF Radio has been installed on Hamara Forums. HF Radio is available on the index page of the board, placed way down below Board Statistics.


Listening to Hamara Forums Radio


You can tune into the stream with winamp player. As the stream is ACCPLUS encoded, only winamp player above 5.08 versions are supported. Using winamp I was able to successfully tune into the stream from behind firewall at the office and at home.

Download the full winamp for free from http://www.winamp.com/player/free.php After you have downloaded and installed latest version of Winamp. The following steps were contributed by Azgar Khan (thanks Azgar)
  1. Open Winamp Player
  2. Click on File
  3. Click on Play URL
  4. Type http://www.hamaraforums.com:8000 . (If you are behind a firewall, type http://radio.hamaraforums.com:80 )
  5. Click on Open

Here is a thread dedicated to book a scheduled program on HF Radio. The thread is updated daily with all the upcoming and changed events.

How to become a DJ?


You can also become a DJ on Hamara Forums Radio. Only one DJ can play a time. To become a DJ, ensure that you have the latest winamp player installed.

  1. Launch Winamp
  2. Press Ctrl + P or from the menu select Options -> Preferences
  3. From the listing on the left, select DSP/Effect
  4. Select Nullsoft SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.9.0 . If this is not listed, you need to install this plugin. The plugin is available at http://www.shoutcast.com/downloads/shoutca...9-0-windows.exe. Download this file and install it.
  5. In the opened dialog SHOUTcast Source
  6. Click on Encoder tab.
  7. Select ACC+ Encoder from the Encoder Type select box. The Current bitrate will be set to 48kbps. If you need to change it, click on the button, Encoder Settings.
  8. Click on Output tab, enter hamaraforums.com in the Address, 8000 in the Port. Get the password from the admins and enter that password in the Password text box.
  9. Click on Yellowpages button and check Make this server public, enter your name or a friendly DJ Name in the Description, http://www.hamaraforums.com in the URL textbox and Bollywood in Genre.
  10. Click on Connect button on the top. Now you should be able to connect if everything goes correct. If some other DJ is connected, you will not be able to connect to the server.
  11. Once you are connected to the server, simply select the files in the winamp and play it.

The songs that you play will be streamed to the server and listeners connected to the server will be able to listen to your stream.

Mix your voice in the songs you play
  1. Attach the microphone in the mic socket of the sound card.
  2. Click the input tab in the SHOUTcast Source.
  3. Select Soundcard Input from the Input Device.
  4. The Soundcard Mixer will be shown below.
  5. Click and hold the button Push to Talk and speak into the microphone. You will see the music volume will automatically go down. After you are through with all the talks, release the button.
  6. Select back Winamp from the Input Device select box for the rest of the song to proceed with 100% quality and volume.
Feel free to raise any questions you may have.

Regards,

YM, the Nullsoft SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.9.0 seems to be working only with winamp. I havent tested it on other players. I am unable to get JetAudio to use this plugin. So I guess winamp is a must to be a DJ.

I listened to it last night after getting instructions from Pradeep. Fantastic experience and the song from 12O'clock was great. A big thank you to Pradeep.

You are right Azgar Bhai. Hamara Forums is certainly getting better all the time. We have come a long way from the old Yahoo MAS days.

YM, am not sure but when you do your stint as a DJ, can you stream all those lovely dialogues from movies or this radio only meant to play songs?
