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

HF Radio Schedules

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.

WOW great info Pradeep Bhai, I want to be a DJ.

Pradeep bhai, is Winamp a must? I mean will nothing else do?
Pradeep
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.
AzgarKhan
The DJ slot is always occupied mad.gif mad.gif
YaarMere
Afs, u have this Winamp? If yes, then get on n start playin sum Rafi. That last person has been playin Geeta Dutt 4 the past hour.

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?

hahha.. not to worry. I am trying to provide an interface for members who can enable and disable the default playing of HF Radio. So if one wishes to wear the RJ shoes, simply click on a button/link which will stop the HF Radio so that he/she can connect to the Radio to stream. After he/she is through put back the HF Radio auto play on.

Nature bhai, the idea is great. Par Uske liye shaayad mixer (hardware) sab chahiye. I need to search the net if there are any software tools which would mix on real time. Plus the person who will be willing to talk should have little technical knowledge. I am sure it would happen as the time progresses. smile1.gif

Thanks Hitesh Bhai smile1.gif ... I am Loving it... Dil Aaj Shayar Hai. When we got our first VCR in 1989, Gambler was the first movie we watched on it. I buncked the school next day and over and over I was watching the movie and especially this song. Excellent singing by Kishore Da. Great composition by Neeraj Sahab and SDB. Dev Anand looks so cute in the mush.

My Next Request is on bow.gif . Comparing Nothing is impossible and Rani Nacho, I like this track more from Zakhmee. Lyrics by Gauhar Kanpuri and music by Bappi Da.

Na Pucho Koyi Hamen.. can easily be classified as a ghazal. Dim the room lights, sit in a corner and listen to this Indivar-Shyamal Mitra composition and think of all those lovely people those that have gone by during one point or another in ones life.

Ik Mahal Ma Cham Cham Karti Nimii introduced me to this song loooooong time back. Love the language, love the tune by Rajesh Roshan and wonderful lyrics by Gulzar Sahab. Picturized on Shahsi and Sanjeev? Movie Swayamvar. Speaking of Swayamwar love Rafi Sahab's and Lata Didi's Mujeh Choo Rahi Hai.

bow.gif Thank you Hitesh Bhai. I just woke up and you made my whole day smile1.gif
Pradeep
Kaisa Hai Mere Dil Tu Khilaadi... Switching of emotions ...... Love it smile1.gif

Vivek's last request is on now - Yeh Laal Rang. Look for another dramatic change in emotions next, as you experience a true double duet - a one of a kind song!!

Drop thi "ji", khobi JI I've opened up a channel, HF Radio on HF Chat. I'll post a message below HF Radio requesting the RJ/DJ and listeners to be on HF Radio chat channel to place their requests.

Is there a limit of 32 people who can tune in at any one time?


Anil
Pradeep
Yes.. but that is just a value in the configuration. I'll increase that as we have more listeners. HF can support about 100 concurrent users on a 128kbps stream.
