RadioBox - ShoutCast Radio Stack
The team at SymfoniP love media in all its various facets and we have covered just about all possible variations of Audio plugins for RapidWeaver for over three years ever since the first release of the Stacks Plugin from Yourhead. Something that has not really been tackled has been integrating streaming radio stations to your RapidWeaver powered web site until now.
RadioBox our latest Stack element aims to address this with a simple clean HTML5 (Flash were required) Player and integrated ‘channel’ list for your ShoutCast Radio streams.
3 sample Radio Stations configured in Radiobox
If you are building or managing a site for your local or community radio station and they have already have a ShoutCast mp3 stream already setup then you can use this new Stack to manage
- ‘channels’ via a dynamic Google Spreadsheet list, effectively a ShoutCast stream!
- Artwork for each ‘channel’
- Native MP3 HTML5 Audio (kind to your iDevices) and automatic Flash Player playback
No coding experience is required to create the actual player itself and we have already provided a sample setup already built into the RadioBox Stack configuration . Sample channels and information on what you need to do to create the channel/stream list for the player is covered in our User Guide.
- No PHP required
- integrated mp3 shoutcast stream player and ‘channel’ list
